Expert Garry Nicolson from Farmers Weekly predicts an unsettled week of weather, with light winds and showers followed by a mostly dry, milder few days.
Farmers Weather expert Garry Nicholson said there will be a cool, blustery weekend with rain intervals but a chance of sunshine. Next week will see a milder few days with potential rain and fog patches.
“It will be a cool weekend, with an easterly pattern influencing the British Isles.
“Mostly light winds, but a strong breeze will develop across the south and south-west during Sunday.
“Many places will be dry, but areas of showers will affect eastern counties at times, and these may give locally frequent rain over several hours. Rain is then likely to spread into the south-west during Sunday, turning heavy later.
“Some sunshine at times over the weekend, the best conditions generally toward the west and north-west.
“Temperatures will be between 10 and 14C by day, and 4 to 8C overnight, but some sheltered spots in the west and north may dip closer to freezing, giving a touch of frost, and some mist patches in the valleys.
“Into next week, there is likely to be some rain across southern regions on Monday, locally persistent over several hours, but there is currently a lot of uncertainty about the extent of this system. The north-east is likely to see further showers.
“By midweek, a change in the weather pattern will result in high pressure across the south, and may well bring largely dry conditions for the rest of the week for central & southern Britain.
“West to south-westerly winds across the north may bring occasional rain to Scotland, also north-west England.
“It is likely to become much milder than recently, temperatures reaching 17 to 19C in the south, but expect some morning fog patches.”
