Planning Outlook

Fairly chilly pattern early next week, but mostly fine with hills often clear as a ridge of high pressure dominates. However from midweek onwards, whilst turning warmer, it will become more changeable with the risk of pulses of showery rain from time to time as pressure gradually lowers from the west. However, there will still be some dry and fine periods; these conditions perhaps predominating still across eastern areas where broadly any rainfall amounts will be small.
