A good start to the month of May this week. Rain early on Monday will clear to sunshine and showers in the afternoon. A cool night then with a slight touch of frost. Tuesday will be a dry, fair day. Some sunshine and cloud for Wednesday but staying dry. A lot of cloud about on Thursday which will give one or two spots of drizzle or mist later. The cloud will break up on Friday to give  a reasonable day. During Saturday there will be more sunny spells but showers will break out in the afternoon. A few showers too likely for Sunday. Next week is looking dry with some pleasantly warm temperatures for early May.
