Low pressure to the east and west puts the UK and Ireland in a narrow ridge of higher pressure on Monday. A mostly dry and bright day for the British Isles after any early rain clears away from the southeast. A few showers too for North Sea coasts where it will be breezy too. Cloud builds from the west later. Chilly with high temperatures at 3 to 8C.
Low pressure to the west of Ireland sends fronts across Ireland and into western parts of the UK bringing cloud and outbreaks of rain. The most persistent rain for Ireland and the southwest UK. Staying dry but increasingly cloudy across much of England and Scotland. Plenty of mist around too. Highs at 3 to 9C.
Pressure stays low on Wednesday. The low pressure is likely to be just southwest of Ireland. This brings further periods of rain, some of it heavy, to southern and western areas. Drier to the north with just occasional showers. Windy too with highs at 4 to 9C.
Low pressure remains close by to the southwest bringing another unsettled day. There will be rain, showers and strong winds. Most rain again in the west and south. Highs at 5 to 10C.
Another unsettled day with low pressure in control. Further showers and outbreaks of rain for most. Drier and brighter to the northwest. High temperatures at 7 to 11C.
A slack pressure gradient on Saturday leads to a cloudy, misty day. Drizzle affecting southern and eastern coastal areas. Best of the sun to the west and north. Highs at 6 to 10C.
