Border Weather: Next few days

Windermere TRACEY LAING Photo:

Weather conditions are changeable this week - although we're not expecting anything too dramatic.

Often a little tricky to explain in brief, the coming days will be a mix of cloud, some sun, showers and dry weather.

For many areas we are 'in between' any real significant weather - with high pressure trying to build to the south of the UK (housing drier, brighter and milder conditions) and more unsettled conditions to the north of the UK (weather fronts trying to move over the top of the high - generating cloudier skies and the risk of rain/showers).

Although a cold start to the week on Monday the coming days will be a little milder with highs 9-11C.

By night there is always the risk of frost and ice for rural spots, and with lighter winds fog patches are likely to form.

Here's the detail for the Border region.....

SUNDAY NIGHT:

Rain clearing northeast this evening to leaving the rest of the night mainly dry with clear periods and some patchy frost. There is the risk of ice on untreated surfaces as road temperatures dip to zero or below. A few isolated freezing fog patches through the Borders. Lows -1 °C.

MONDAY:

Rain could linger to eastern parts of The BOrders during the morning before finally clearing east later.

Any overnight frost and fog soon clearing to leave a dry day with some good spells of sunshine. Light winds. Odd shower. Highs 7-8°C.

OUTLOOK:

Windy with showers on Tuesday, mainly across the west.

Wednesday looks mainly dry but with cloudier skies at times, the risk of a few showers in the west.

Unsettled into the first part of Thursday but improving.
