Rain arriving in the northwest on Wednesday.
Cloudy and rather damp in places with patchy rain and drizzle. There will also be low cloud giving local mist patches. Brighter further east with a few sunny spells. Heavier rain arriving through the afternoon across northern and western areas. Maximum Temperature 24C.
A cloudy night across the region with rain gradually pushing southeastwards as the night goes on with some heavy bursts at times. Turning clearing later across far western parts. Minimum Temperature 13C.
Rain will clear quickly southeastwards during Thursday morning leaving a bright day with some sunny spells and a few showers. Feeling fairly fresh. Maximum Temperature 21C.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
A dry, bright start Friday then becoming cloudier with a risk of light rain. Mostly dry and cloudy on Saturday. Becoming windy for Sunday with some showery rain likely.
Day 6 to 15
Heavy persistent rain and strong winds are likely at times on Sunday in northern, central and western areas, with the southeast probably staying dry. Next week will tend to stay windy in the north and west with a fair amount of rain here but also a few brighter and drier interludes. There will probably be a good deal of dry and bright weather in the south and east, with only brief interludes of thicker cloud and rain. As a result, this part of the country may well become very warm and humid again. This pattern is quite likely to continue into the following week, with warm dry weather predominating, especially in the south, and longer spells of rain and wind more likely in the north.
Day 16 to 30
During this period it looks likely that the weather pattern will only change slowly. High pressure will tend to dominate at the start of this period, with southern areas perhaps seeing the driest and brightest weather. Further outbreaks of rain and strong winds may move across the north, and perhaps sink southeastwards at times. Into September, confidence in the forecast decreases. However, we will probably see some longer dry and settled spells at times, these perhaps becoming more dominant in the north and northwest. Temperatures are likely to be generally warmer than average, but as we go into September there will an increasing chance of some chillier nights.
