What is the weather predicted for the rest of the week?

Wednesday, August 21 will see most of the rain clearing and it should remain mild on Thursday, August 22 with small bursts of sun. The weekend will be dry and mild with some sunny spells and it may feel slightly warmer with wind set to be lighter than earlier in the week.
