Sunday looks to be a showery day but with some sunny spells about too, showers could be on the heavy side for many. A slightly warmer day than Saturday and continues to feel humid. Highs at 17 to 24C.
Low pressure stays close by for the start of the week and will see a continuation of unsettled conditions. Showers or longer spells of rain expected to affect Scotland, Northern Ireland and into northern England Monday with drier conditions for a time further south. Meanwhile, a new developing system moves in towards the southwest later. This will bring rain to southern Ireland, Wales and the southwest before the day is up. Highs at 15 to 21C.
Staying unsettled on Tuesday with showers as well as longer spells of rain once again across the country. Giving any detail on where the heaviest of rain will be at this stage is too tricky but low pressure stays dominant. Highs at 14 to 21C.
Low pressure still about by midweek but it is showing signs of weakening and pushing towards the north of Scotland. Showers to affect mainly northern and western areas while southern and eastern areas could fair better with the best of any sunny spells and the driest of weather. Highs at 15 to 21C.
Thursday could perhaps see drier and brighter conditions coming about across Ireland, Northern Ireland and southern parts of the UK as higher pressure ridges in more here. Staying mixed further north, however, with cloudier skies and showery rain. Highs at 15 to 21C.
Weak high pressure looks to come about across the UK and Ireland by Friday allowing for an improvement in the weather for most, although do expect some lingering rain across the far north of Scotland as well as a few scattered showers about for others. Highs at 16 to 22C.
