This morning it will be quite cloudy, grey and misty in places with cloud breaking through the morning in the east. The west sees better, brighter breaks first thing, but it'll be cloudy further north.

Throughout the afternoon, the best of the sunshine will be found further east, up to 23c 73f. Feeling warm. It will generally be cloudier further west.

For the East Midlands, the remainder of the week looks like being mostly dry, but fairly cloudy, especially overnight and during the mornings. Thursday may possibly be favoured for some brighter breaks.

For the West Midlands, a front should have gone through by Wednesday morning so that looks like being the best day for brighter breaks. Maybe some cloud and rain later though.

On Friday, we expect thicker cloud and bits of rain or drizzle.

The detail is tricky because pressure will be relatively high further south for the next few days and because the fronts to the north are very weak and pulling down through the high, it's difficult to say whether they will give just cloud or an odd shower and, of course, how much. It would only take a little bit of a random factor to pep up any activity.
