Temperatures will be pleasantly warm in sunshine, with daytime highs of 12 to 16C.
Farmers expert Garry Nicholson said a fairly quiet period of weather is expected, with some ‘useful dry days’ and ‘springlike warmth’.
But grey skies and patchy rain is predicted over the weekend.
He said: “On Saturday, expect cloudy skies for many, and patchy rain across northern and western areas, although brighter skies will follow from the west later.
“On Sunday, further rain and drizzle moves into western regions, whilst a zone of heavier showery rain threatens central-eastern counties of England, which may give 7 to 10mm or locally more over a few hours.”
By Monday, things will start to settle down.
“Dry and bright weather will dominate much of the week, particularly across the south and east of Britain, whilst thicker cloud and a little rain will influence the north and west at times,” Mr Nicholson added.
“Temperatures will be pleasantly warm in any sunshine, with daytime highs of 12 to 16C. Overnight will be cool where skies stay clear, with a touch of frost possible in rural areas.
“Later in the week, there is a risk of things becoming cooler and more changeable from the north-west.”
