Not a bad week but never fully settled. Monday will be a bright, fresh day with just one or two light showers. Starting fair on Tuesday but becoming cloudier in the afternoon. Some cloud on Wednesday and with some scattered outbreaks of rain at first. After a fair start more heavier prolonged showers are expected later Thursday. Winds will turn more around to the northwest on Friday bringing some sunshine but with one or two showers later and it will turn a bit cooler again. Not a bad day for Saturday - dry with some sunshine. Sunday is shaping up to be a good day as a ridge of high pressure builds in. But it isn't expected to last and some rain is due early next week .
