The weather is improving over the weekend and it's all thanks to a ridge of high pressure which will move in tomorrow bringing with drier and brighter conditions
Saturday starts off bright but chilly, although it will quickly warm up once the sun works it's magic. It won't be a scorching day, in fact temperatures remain below average for the time of year but it will feel much better than today with a maximum of 15C.
However if you plan on heading to the coast, there will be a moderate northerly breeze, making it feel cooler than the temperatures suggest, so don't forget to take some extra layers.
It turns cold everywhere overnight so gardeners beware...a touch of frost is possible.
And that take us into a chilly start on Sunday but again there will be bright skies throughout the morning. More cloud is expected to drift in later but it should stay dry with occasional bright or sunny spells. The winds will be lighter and temperatures could hit 17C inland.
Monday is one to watch. An area of rain is heading into western parts of the country but for us it looks like it will stay well away, which means a glorious day to come. Fine and dry with plenty of sunshine and one or two lucky places away from the east coast, could hit a maximum temperature of 20C.
The only down side to the weather improving is the pollen count will rise, so if you do suffer from hayfever be prepared and pack the tissues!
