Some fine spells especially early in the week, but there will be some rain at times too. Monday will be a fine, sunny day. Some cloud at times on Tuesday but still holding warm and dry until late. Overnight, rain will move in from the west. So rain first thing on Wednesday will be followed by fresher weather with just the odd shower. The west wind will increase on Thursday bringing in a few blustery showers. Fair for much of Friday and it will turn a bit milder again but southwest winds will bring some more rain overnight Friday. The weekend will see sunshine and some showers with average temperatures. Some fair weather at the start of next week but there will be some rain later. No real settled spell in the short term.
