Happy New Year!

For New Year's day we can expect cloudy skies, outbreaks of rain followed by heavy, frequent showers and some pretty strong winds.

A low pressure system sweeps in from the South West today which will give us yet another wet and windy spell, and it continues unsettled for the rest of the week.

Despite a dry start in places cloud will thicken during the morning, winds will strengthen and rain will push in. Later in the afternoon rain will be replaced by showers, which again could be heavy.
