Unfortunately much changed this week - cool with spells of rain. Dry for a while on Monday but rain will spread up from the southwest during the course of the day and will become heavier overnight. Rain still on Tuesday but by late afternoon it will clear up somewhat. More showery outbreaks of rain on Wednesday with a few bright spells. It will turn noticeably colder on Thursday as blustery winds swing around to the northwest and there will be some showers. Cool and blustery for Friday but less showers. It will become milder on Saturday but with more rain coming in from the Atlantic later. Some showers for Sunday. Some signs though that next week will see a gradual improvement.
