Mixed at first but signs of getting warmer and drier next week

The weather is going to be mixed at first with a few showers buit also some drier days. Then turning breezier and damper for a time later in the week, especially the west. However, by the end of the weekend temperatures start to rise in the south and pressure increases, and warmer, drier weather then extends north, perhaps heralding a warmer week ahead.
