The BBC Weather meteorologist said high pressure will remain in charge through most of the coming week, leading to settled conditions for the next five days or so. While temperatures are expected to stay into the high teens and low twenties for most of the time, Owain Wyn Evans did warn a breeze will be picking up across the easter coast of England. The BBC forecaster said: “More dry weather to come over the next couple of days.
“We have high pressure nearby – bright and breezy, dry for most.
“I say for most because we could actually see the odd spot of drizzle where the cloud is thick enough.
“High pressure is keeping weather fronts in areas of low pressure away. Over the next couple of days, we’re going to see more of that as well.
“For this morning, some low cloud, some fog in places across Northern Ireland, through Scotland into the north of England.”

He continued: “We’ll see some cloud drifting into the southeast corner of England later on, we could see a couple of showers as well.
“But in the sunshine, as yesterday, west is best. So if you’re in Northern Ireland, Wales, southwest of England, you’ll see more prolonged spells of sunshine where elsewhere, we will see those spells in the way of more cloud.
“In the sunshine, temperatures of 21C-22C, under the cloud it’ll feel cooler. And feeling cooler along the eastern coast, where we have a noticeable breeze.
“And that breeze will tend to strengthen as we head into tonight.”

Fog and mist will be more prominent overnight, as the breeze gets pushed southwards but high pressure will once again keep conditions settled through Monday.
Mr Jones continued: “The cloud is being dragged down as we head into tonight, into the Midlands a bit further south as well.
“Again, some mist and fog patches will return. As we look at tomorrow morning, we’ll see the mist and fog lingering for a time, potentially, but again the same old places – part of Wales, southwest of England – we’ll see the best sunshine.
“The high pressure’s still here. As it slowly moves away to the northeast, it’ll drag in more of that breeze, and, at times, that breeze will strengthen and it will be noticeable.

“And tomorrow’s top temperature quite similar to today, about 20C feeling cool, not only in those winds but also under the cloud.”
The Met Office however forecast unsettled weather from next week as the high pressure moves away.
The Met’s long-range forecast read: “Temperatures are likely to be close to average for most, but rather cool in eastern regions.
“Into the following week it is likely that an unsettled spell of weather will develop, bringing showers or longer spells of rain across many parts of the UK.
“The wettest conditions will probably be across northwestern areas with the driest weather in the south and southeast. Temperatures are likely to be near or a little above average.”
