Another pretty good week this week, with very little rain. Monday and Tuesday will be fair days with sunshine and a little cloud but it will stay dry. More cloud is expected later on Wednesday and this is likely to produce a little light rain overnight. During Thursday it will brighten up again especially late in the day. Another fair day for Friday and Saturday as high pressure takes hold again. But at the moment it looks like pressure will fall during Easter Sunday and this could give some showery outbreaks of rain. A little more unsettled then for next week.
