A dry week and even warm for a time mid-week. Monday will start bright and fine turning a bit cloudier later. After another cool start, Tuesday will be a fair day with a mixture of sun and cloud. It will become warm on Wednesday as winds turn to the southwest and with a bit of sunshine, temperatures could reach 20 C. Thursday will be cloudier but holding dry. For Friday and the weekend winds will be between northeast and northwest, so temperatures will drop back a bit but with slack winds it will still feel very pleasant. The outlook for next week is for continued dry, settled weather.
