Into next Wednesday and cofidence is increasing for high pressure to build into the UK from the west through the day introducing mainly fine and settled conditions. A few showers can't be ruled out across more southern and eastern areas of England where a cool NE'ly breeze is forecast too, winds light elsewhere. Best of the sunshine in the north and west, but cool and with rather a rather chilly night ahead. Highs around, 9C to 14C.
During Thursday and high pressure is now forecast to be situated over most of the British Isles. As a result after a chilly start, perhaps with ground frost, much of the day for many areas will be dry with bright or sunny spells, perhaps prolonged in places. Winds light and variable for most areas, but perhaps still light or moderate N or NE'ly in the south and east. Temperatures still rather cool and near or slightly below average, highs 9C to 14C at best.
At the moment Friday is set to maintain fine and settled conditions now as high pressure persists and keeps Atlantic low pressure systems to the west of the British Isles.

Temperatures still rather cool, highs 10C to 15C.

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 12C to 17C.

Uncertainties by the following Monday but it may well still be predominantl settled as high pressure persists either over or just to the north-east.

Temperatures near average, highs 12C to 17C.
