Summary

High pressure centred over southern Scandinavia will continue to dominate the United Kingdom during today bringing mainly fine conditions, however Atlantic fronts will occasionally bring some cloud and rain to northwestern parts. The high will then begin to decline tomorrow allowing an area of low pressure to move west across southern parts on Sunday bringing unsettled and windier conditions here.
