A new month and an excellent forecast for fine dry weather. Cool by night but warm by day. Apart from a little light rain Sunday night it's likely to stay dry all week. For Monday and Tuesday we will have a little cloud but also some nice sunny breaks. Tuesday night will be cool with a slight ground frost but it any sunshine temperatures will warm up steadily towards the 20°mark. Continuing fine as we head into the weekend and we will pick up a light easterly wind. There will be some cloud about at times as we head into next week but still some sunshine and no sign of rain, as yet.
