A fair and mostly dry week ahead. Monday will be another fine day with plenty of sunshine. Fine too for Tuesday and Wednesday just with some high cloud about making the sun not as strong. More cloud about on Thursday but still dry. Some sunshine and cloud for Friday with a slight drop in temperature. Later Friday brings the risk of some showery rain breaking out. This will be more likely over the weekend - but rainfall totals will be small. Prospects for next week are for the temperatures to edge up a bit but with the increased risk of more showery rain.
