UK weather forecast: Not a bad weekend across the West Country, with some high temperatures on Sunday

It'll be a dry and largely sunny weekend for the south west, with temperatures well above normal on Sunday. However, it'll be a breezy day too, and there will be some rain in the evening.

High pressure is trundling to the east of the UK, allowing southerly winds to bring warm air across the West Country. A front will give rain on Sunday night but this should be out of the way by next week

For the rest of today it'll stay dry and fine with clear skies for most overnight. Not desperately cold, with lows of 2 or 3 Celsius, but there could be some patchy frost and fog.

Saturday looks like a lovely day, with a little cloud in the morning giving way to plenty of afternoon sunshine. Temperatures should get to 15 degrees fairly widely, but brisk winds across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly will hold those figures back nearer 12 Celsius.

Sunday will be warmer still across the north of the region, with 17 to 18 degrees here. However, the south coast and parts of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly will feel cooler with strong winds coming off the sea. A band of rain will move through overnight, clearing to leave dry weather for the new week, and temperatures still around the mid-teens.
