Staying mostly dry, the risk of some showery weather in the south next week
Plenty of uncertainty in how the forecast develops into next week. Before then there will be plenty of dry weather around and it is likely to be staying warm too. Some low cloud drifting around mainly western coasts, and eastern coasts could feel cooler at times. We may see a shift to more showery, breezy conditions in Ireland and southern parts of the UK next week.
