Most areas this weekend have remained dry with decent temperatures and some long spells of albeit hazy sunshine. The further east you are the greater risk of thicker cloud, mist & murk and a much cooler feel - especially for the east coast, where brisk east/southeasterly breezes continue.

As we head into the new week conditions turn a little more unsettled with cloudier skies becoming more widespread and a much higher risk of showers or rain - some of which could be heavy and thundery later on Monday into Tuesday.

Although easing off the air stays fairly mild inland with the best of any brightness in the west.

Here's your forecast into the new working week for the Border region.......


Continuing to be fairly cloudy across The Borders and much cooler for the east coast. Dry and brighter over many parts of Dumfries & Galloway/ Cumbria. Highs 10°C in the east but 16°C further west.


Staying mainly cloudy this evening and overnight with some light rain over the Borders. Clearer spells further west. Rain could edge into Stranraer by the end of night. Lows 5 °C.


West is best for brightness during the day but in the far west (Stranraer) rain is possible first thing as a weather front clips the western fringes of the region.

Cloudier further east, becoming more widespread throughout the day. Patchy showery rain for East Cumbria and The Borders will spread to all parts during the evening (especially across Southwest Scotland and Cumbria) and could be heavy, possible thundery.

Fresher easterly winds but not cold with highs of 12-14°C.


Cloudy with showers on Tuesday with fresh southeasterly winds.

Mainly dry but cloudy on Wednesday with rain from the southwest later.

Cloudy again with outbreaks of rain developing from the west on Thursday
