“Weather models continue to show unsettled outlook from Saturday with risk of heavy showers but amounts generally don’t look too high. The ECMWF model also showing a chance of much warmer air moving up next week which could bring temperatures into high twenties but uncertain yet,” he said, posting to his popular Twitter page, reports The Mirror.
