Some rain late week

Issued: 1000hrs Saturday 11th May 2019
Duty forecaster: Garry Nicholson

Warmest west & northwest

High pressure will influence the weather into midweek, with dry and sunny weather for most places. Warm sunshine by day, but cool at night, with a touch of frost in sheltered rural spots. A southeasterly flow means the best temperatures will be found in the north & west of Britain, with foehn effects over the hills generating some locally very warm values to the lee of high ground.
