The outlook for Monday to Wednesday: Windy Monday and generally dry, but rain for the Pennines. Tuesday largely dry but often cloudy, some bright or sunny spells. Wednesday breezy, sunny intervals and showers. Temperatures near normal.

From Thursday onwards, rain will move southeastwards, with heavy bursts in the west. There is a chance of wintry showers in the north, bringing snow to higher ground. The far southeast will remain dry and bright into the afternoon with largely light winds, though gales may develop in central and southern areas.

Periods of drier and more settled weather are still possible, but more short-lived than recently.
