Cloudier outlook. Higher risk of showers

Dramatic clouds over Woolston Eyes, Warrington Photo:

Most areas this weekend have remained dry with decent temperatures and some long spells of albeit hazy sunshine.

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.

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

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.

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

REST OF SUNDAY:

Dry with warm hazy sunshine. The southeasterly breeze will also gradually ease and this will lead to it feeling warm, especially in any sunny spells. Highs 18 °C.

SUNDAY NIGHT:

Mostly dry and mild, with variable amounts of cloud. Some mist possible again over Pennine and Cumbrian hills. Lows of 6-8°C.

MONDAY:

Warm again, especially in any sunny spells, which are most likely in the west. A greater risk of showers both during the morning and again later in the afternoon/evening, which could by then be heavy and thundery.

The best chance of drier and slightly brighter weather is likely in the afternoon for Merseyside and Cheshire. Highs 14-16 °C.

OUTLOOK:

Heavy and thundery showers will continue for a time overnight into Tuesday.

On Tuesday any local mist clearing with some sunshine but scattered showers will break out, locally heavy with thunder.

A dry start Wednesday but cloud and rain approaches from the southwest.
