Tuesday sees a weakening front pushing southeastward over Scotland and Ireland and into northern parts of England and Wales. For many this will manifest as cloud but there will be some patchy rain associated with this feature too. Becoming cooler and brighter across Scotland and Ireland as the front passes. Staying milder ahead of the front with some good spells of sunshine for southeast England. Highs range from 9 to 14C.
A cloudy day for central and southern parts of England and Wales as well as for the far south of Ireland. Some patchy outbreaks of rain affecting these areas too as a weak front extends across the area. Brighter and dry to the north of this with good spells of sunshine for Scotland, northern and eastern England and northern Ireland. Highs at 10 to 15C.
High pressure builds in again as the lingering front from the previous days disappears from the picture. A mostly dry, settled and bright day for the UK and Ireland. Any early mist or fog patches should burn off quickly. A cool start with slight frost with high temperatures reaching 12 to 16C by afternoon.
High pressure dominates inhibiting the eastward progression of low pressure just to the west of Ireland. Dry conditions with sunny spells for most, sunshine best further east. Cloudier skies further west and the risk of some rain into the far west of Ireland later. Highs at 13 to 17C.
Another largely dry day with good spells of sunshine, although with low pressure close by some western areas could still see more in the way of cloud once again with the risk of some rain pushing into parts of western Ireland still. Highs at 15 to 19C.
High pressure stays dominant into Sunday with further good spells of sunshine and plenty of dry weather across the UK and Ireland. Fronts to the far west may still bring thicker cloud and patchy rain to the far west of Ireland. Highs at 14 to 18C.
