Bank Holiday Monday is a transitional day, leading to slightly more unsettled conditions for the rest of this week.
A Northwest/southeast split develops across the UK with southern and eastern counties holding on to drier, clearer and warmer conditions for longer.
The further north and west you are the higher risk of thicker cloud, outbreaks of rain and stronger winds. These conditions will slowly make their way east by the end of Monday.
As we head further into the week high pressure will by this time have slipped away into the continent, allowing low pressure to edge in closer from the Atlantic. The west wins, bringing a more unsettled feed of sunshine & showers or longer spells of rain over the coming few days. Breezy conditions at times most places frost free.
