It will be cloudier on Tuesday with the chance of one or two spots of rain but most parts will hold dry. It will turn milder. The cloud will break up somewhat on Wednesday to give a few bright spells in the afternoon. A light frost on Thursday morning followed by a fair day. More fair weather for Friday. There'll be a frosty start to both Saturday and Sunday but otherwise calm, cool, fair weather will continue over the weekend. Continuing fair too into next week.
