High pressure will maintain a lot of fine weather at first, into the coming weekend but then perhaps more unsettled, for some, next week.

Friday is set to maintain fine and settled conditions as high pressure persists and keeps Atlantic low pressure systems to the west of the British Isles. Some uncertainties over the details but most areas remaining dry after another chilly start with bright or sunny spells developing. Winds light and rather variable for most areas. Temperatures near average after a chilly start, highs 12C to 17C.
Into Saturday and, for now, it does look as though high pressure will maintain further dry and settled conditions across many areas. Bright or sunny spells are again forecast through the day, perhaps prolonged in places despite some variable cloud. Winds still light and variable for most regions, but perhaps becoming SW'ly light or moderate in the north and west. A little warmer than previous days with near average temperatures. Highs 13C to 18C.
At the moment no major changes are forecast by next Sunday with high pressure sitll the dominant feature. There may be an increased risk of some patchy rain or showers into north-west Scotland. Otherwise, for many areas, it remains dry with bright or sunny spells, especially across England and Wales. Winds perhaps E or ENE'ly light or moderate in the south, more SW'ly moderate in the north and west. Highs 13C to 18C.
Uncertainties by next Monday but it may well still be predominantly settled as high pressure persists either over or just to the north-east, but lower pressure to the west may maintain a risk of some patchy rain or showers for W Scotland and Ireland. Perhaps more of an E'ly breeze developing by this point too and this lowering temperatures across areas near to the N Sea, otherwise still pleasantly warm, especially in the west and in any sunny spells. Temperatures near average, highs 12C to 17C.
More unsettled conditions may begin to develop across more southern and western areas as low pressure tries to develop just to the south-west of the British Isles, bringing an increased risk of some showery conditions in the south and west. Mainly dry conditions may prevail further north and east though with some sunny spells. Cool near to the N Sea otherwise temperatures near average. Highs 12C to 18C.
Still a lot of dry and fine weather at the moment by next Wednesday but a lot of uncertainty over the details. Some patchy rain or showers may remain a risk of some western areas of the British Isles, but, otherwise a lot of fine weather is set to continue with some sunny spells. Near average temperatures, highs 12C to 17C.
