A fine dry week, mild until Friday but colder at the weekend. After a cool start Monday will see some nice sunny spells. Something similar for Tuesday. Some cloud on Wednesday but still mild. Thursday will be a cloudy day but no rain. During late Thursday night there may be a brief spell of light rain. This will introduce cooler, clearer air from the north. So a cooler breezy day for Friday but with bright spells. Cool, bright and breezy also for Saturday. Plenty of sunshine too for Sunday but the northerly wind will die down giving a sharp frost Sunday night. Continuing cool then for Halloween but with a little showery rain coming through then.
