Gradually turning cooler and cloudier from the northwest from late Tuesday. Probably only small amounts of rain and winds generally remaining fairly light. A divergence of views towards next weekend with some models pointing to high pressure persisting just to the west of Ireland bringing mainly dry weather and others pointing to more unsettled weather slowly extending southwards at least across northern ranges.
