Plenty of showers and longer periods of rain this week. Monday will be bright at times but also with the chance of a shower. During Tuesday more persistent rain will move in from the west, clearing later. It will be a close day. Some more rain for a time at the end of the night but it will brighten up on Wednesday but still with the prospect of some heavy afternoon showers. More sunshine and showers for Thursday and for Friday.The weekend also will be showery, but Sunday is likely to be the better day of the two with lighter showers. Finally the weather is showing signs of settling down as we head into September - but we have to endure this week first.
