After mild weather this week conditions become much cooler and breezy
Get set for temperatures to be falling later this weekend and into next week. It will be mild or very mild for the remainder of this week before temperatures then turn much colder into next week. The winds become easterly, cloud increases and there is a higher chance of drizzle and outbreaks of rain as the week progresses.

Little change on Sunday with high pressure to the east of the UK and an easterly flow affecting all. There will be good spells of sunshine, in the west, but eastern areas may see more cloud. A breezy and cool day. Highs at 9 to 12C.
