Warm days ahead, but then changing later in the weekend to windier, wetter, cooler weather
Fine weather to come in the next couple of days for many and feeling warm too. There will be changes taking place later in the weekend and into next week. The jet stream becomes stronger and that brings lower pressure with rain and showers. Winds are likely to be stronger and it will be cooler too.
