Weather will turn wet and windy as well as cooler from midweek before high pressure returns the following weekend.
High pressure currently over the country is squeezed out the way allowing for a trough midweek to bring in cooler and more unsettled weather throughout. There are signs for high pressure to ridge back in next weekend and into the following week allowing the return of drier weather.

Low pressure pushes offshore over the North Sea on Friday and in doing so winds veer round to the northwest and become brisk making the air feel even chillier. It will be a day of sunny spells but also showers, some of these turning into longer spells of rain at time more so in the north and west. Highs at 12 to 15C.
A ridge builds in from the west over Ireland, Northern Ireland and then pushes eastwards. A largely dry day with sunshine for many areas although there will still be a brisk northerly wind, cloudier skies and possible patchy rain along eastern coasts. Highs at 11 to 15C.
With high pressure to the west and low pressure circulating over Denmark, a northerly wind still prevails across the country.

High pressure still around allowing for a largely dry and fine day once again although chilly in a northerly wind. Cloudier skies in the southeast coast of England with possible scattered showers here. Highs ranging from 10C in the north and 14C in the south.
