High pressure will be close to our west this week – bit of a mish-mash, fairly dry but some showers around – and becoming colder as the week goes on.

Thanks to Paul for the photograph.

Tonight will be rather and increasingly cloudy. A weak weather front bringing a bit of light rain by dawn, down to around 5’C.

Tuesday morning will be cloudy with occasional rain – mostly light or moderate. Brighter skies slowly spreading from the west as the afternoon goes on. Milder but breezy, 13’C. Chilly overnight with clear spells, down to around 4’C in a northerly breeze.

Wednesday sees high pressure still in control to our west. Generally quite cloudy, perhaps thick enough for a splash of light rain, but there will be some brightness too – especially in the morning. 10’C in a northerly breeze. Fairly cloudy overnight and increasingly so as the night goes on, down to around 5’C.

Thursday looks mostly cloudy. A bit of brightness at times, more likely early part of the morning – some light rain at times, most likely in the afternoon. Feeling pretty chilly in the breeze, 9’C. Cloudy overnight, the odd spot of light rain or drizzle possible, 6’C.

For Friday we’ll be in a pretty cold north-easterly flow – though the coldest air will be further south over France. A lot of cloud, a bit of light rain possible – hopeful for the cloud to push west late in the day so we end in some sunshine. Feeling pretty cold, around 8’C. Could be 16’C in Glasgow. Uncertainty on cloud amounts overnight – a frost very possible if not much cloud.

Saturday remains chilly. Likely a lot of cloud around but some sun possible in the morning. Around 9’C, maybe 10’C. Probably rather cloudy overnight – down to around 4’C, give or take.

Subtle changes for Sunday – the high pressure still close to our west but we’ve cut off the northerly and have a north-westerly flow, but one that originates from a milder source. Still likely a lot of cloud around, some sunshine, and temperatures between 12’C and 14’C.

High pressure should remain in control for next week, at least at the start of the week.

Some uncertainty on positioning and also cloud amounts, but arguably next week is more likely to start either mild and cloudy or quite warm and sunny.

How next week then progresses I’m unsure – though something colder from the north or east remains as possible as something mild/quite warm. Though mostly dry should remain the theme.
