Today’s bright start to the week is expected to last right through to this evening.

Forecasters are expecting the weather to turn cloudy around 9pm and remain overcast overnight.

Temperatures are set to hit highs of 9°C in mid-afternoon, but with a bit of a breeze it will feel two or three degrees colder.

The dry weather is set to continue

Early cloud cover should give way to more sunshine by late morning on Tuesday and the sun is set to keep shining apart from a couple of brief periods of cloud in mid-afternoon.

It will feel warmer than today, with highs of 12°C and only a gentle breeze to cool things down.

The clear skies will mean temperatures dip overnight, however, with a low of 6°C by early morning.
