Staying mild and mostly settled through this working week
High pressure will continue to dominate our weather over the coming days before we see a change to a more unsettled, westerly regime by the weekend. Very mild at first before temperatures fall closer to average for the time of year; still feeling mild for many. Low pressure systems will bring wet and very windy weather through next weekend and into the start of the following week.
