Drier and milder than recently for many, but plenty of cloud

Higher pressure is building through this week, but don't get too excited. The high is likely to be bringing drier weather for many of us for several days, but there is likely to be a fair amount of cloud cover too. Some areas stays mixed with northern Scotland especially so. A slip back to more unsettled weather later in the forecast.
