Perhaps milder, wetter end of week
High pressure centred to the north east of Britain and will act as a block, keeping fronts west of the country. The west will have the best of the sunshine. A moderate to strong onshore wind will bring in lots of cloud to central and eastern areas with a risk of showers. Temperatures will be below normal overall and feeling quite chilly in the wind. Milder conditions may develop by the end of the week but confidence is low.
