Half term is set to be a tale of two halves, with promising weather at the start of the week turning unsettled as the school holidays come to an end.

There are likely to be periods of sunshine and mild temperatures, but it would be wise to have an umbrella close at hand.

The best of the weather will be at the start of the week, so it would be a good idea to book any outdoor activities between Monday and Wednesday.

According to Weatherquest, Saturday will start cold but as the day progresses it will be largely dry with patches of cloud and light showers.

On Sunday, the morning and early afternoon should also be dry. 

A weak front arriving from the west may bring showers drifting east, but most of the county will avoid the rain. Temperatures will turn milder with highs of 14-15C expected.

Monday will be breezy, with a westerly wind bringing sunny spells and scattered showers.

Wednesday will be similar with breezy mild weather and sunshine.

Overall, the first half of the week offers mostly dry weather.
