High pressure building. Mainly dry from Tuesday

After an unsettled start to the week conditions are set to settle down a little over the next few days.

Although there's a chance of a few showers and more cloud threatening from the northwest Wednesday into Thursday, high pressure will build from the south - allowing many parts of the midlands to stay dry for the rest of the week.

The positioning of the high to the south will allow a fairly fresh west/northwest airflow.

Temperatures will feel cooler than of late and hover around average, at best, during the coming few days.

High pressure builds from the south. Mainly dry. Cloud may invade from the north by Thursday

MONDAY NIGHT:

A good deal of dry weather overnight, with some clear spells. Showers continue for a time but will become more scattered into the early hours with just a few remaining by dawn. A breezy night but chilly under clearer skies away from towns and cities. A touch of ground frost is possible. Lows 3-5°C.

TUESDAY:

A bright and breezy day with sunny spells and just the small chance of an isolated shower. Fresher than recent days. Highs 10-12 °C.

OUTLOOK:

Largely dry and fine on Wednesday, though perhaps clouding over in the north later on.

Turning increasingly cloudy on Thursday but it should stay dry. Southern counties will hang on to the brightest spells. Light rain/drizzle is possible out of any thicker cloud in the north.

Skies clear again into Friday. Scattered showers but many places dry again with sunny breaks.
