The first half of the week will be bright, breezy, and dry for many, although some will see rain or showers at various points.

Heavy rain is the main hazard for the next day or so with a yellow National Severe Weather Warning in place for the far south until Tuesday morning.

Met Office Deputy Chief Meteorologist, Dan Harris, said; “From mid-week we expect to see a north / south split develop with colder weather arriving in the north, while the south hangs onto the mild conditions.”
