Staying unsettled with early heavy rain, then more mixed with some drier weather developing The weather is set to be unsettled through the coming week. There will be some heavy rain at times in the next few days and strong winds too. Feeling chilly in those winds, especially in the north and east. A change to a westerly wind direction through the weekend brings about less rain with some sunshine and drier conditions developing in the south and east. A couple of mainly fair days to start next week before more rain arrives towards the end of the forecast period.
For the weather for the next few days click here Friday 30/6/17 Low pressure to the east of the country on Friday with a northerly flow affecting all areas.

*June* As of the time of issue models are emphasising that high pressure is likely to be the dominating factor of the weather through June. A drier than average month is anticipated and this is likely to lead to moe sunshine than usual too. There are uncertainties about how dominant the high will be as it could drift around from time to time, allowing for bands of rain to affect the country. Overall conditions suggest though that the weather stays mostly dry. *July* High pressure is likely to be remaining the most notable feature of the weather in July. It may be north of the country encouraging a more easterly flow. Dry weather again seems most likely, although there is little back up for this when comparing to similar patterns in previous years. Models continue to emphasise a warmer than average month. Severe thunderstorms could affect the south at times. Simon Keeling Email me at email@example.com
