Next Wk.
20° 23°  19°  18° 19° 22° 24° 27°
Mild and a bit drizzly rain in the first part of the week and then some nice fair weather in the second part as high pressure takes hold. A lot of cloud on Monday and it will be thick enough in the afternoon to produce a little rain or drizzle. More drizzly rain first thing on Tuesday but it will clear off to give a warm afternoon with a few sunny breaks. There will be a short spell of rain early on Wednesday but this will clear off to brighter, fresher weather. Mixture of cloud and some sun for Thursday and Friday but it will stay dry. Temperatures will increase over the weekend and it will stay dry with some nice sunshine. Outlook for next week is for it to become hot and stay dry.
