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 from Tuesday, and more cloud threatening from the northwest Wednesday into Thursday, high pressure builds from the south - allowing for a lot of dry weather to develop.

The positioning of the high to the south will allow a fairly fresh west/northwest airflow. Temperatures will feel cooler and hover around average at best for the rest of the week.

Here's the detail for the next few days.....

High pressure tries to build from the south. Mainly dry but breezy. Cloud may invade from the north

REST OF MONDAY:

Further outbreaks of showery rain will continue to spread east during the afternoon, heavy and possibly thundery at times. Drier, brighter weather from the west for a time during the early evening. Winds gusty where showers occur. Highs 11-13°C.

MONDAY NIGHT:

After some initial brighter breaks a breezy night with clear spells and scattered showers, becoming fairly isolated towards morning. A colder night under clearer skies. A touch of ground frost is possible and showers could be a little wintry over the higher ground. Lows 3°C.

TUESDAY:

A bright and breezy day with sunny spells. Chance of a shower but mosts areas staying dry. Highs 11°C. Fresh westerly wind.

OUTLOOK:

Rather cloudy on Wednesday, especially for Cumbria and the Isle of Man.

Cloud develops across many areas overnight into Thursday, with outbreaks of light rain or drizzle possible out of any thicker cloud

Clearer skies develop on Thursday night with more sunshine and a few scattered showers for Friday.
