Rather mixed to unsettled at times during the upcoming days. Temperatures too will vary from day to day.
Mixed to unsettled conditions are forecast through the end of the week and over the weekend at least, with rain and showers as well as brisk winds at times. Transient ridges of higher pressure come about across more southern areas at times next week, allowing for drier days, but northern and western areas stay largely mixed to unsettled. Temperatures vary from day to day but not looking too cold.
