Bright spells for some on Tuesday. Lots of cloud around.

After a mostly dry and cloudy Monday night with odd showers in the west, and clearer spells further east, we are in for a similar split on Tuesday morning.

The worst of any overnight rain should have moved through by Tuesday morning, showers turning lighter and patchier, hardly anything around by the afternoon. There will be more cloud around than on Monday, but still some good bright spells and maybe even some sun further east on Tuesday afternoon. Overall, a reasonable day, highs of 16c, 61f, and feeling fresh.

Always the chance of a shower over the next few days; heavy rain at times on Wednesday and Thursday, and a wet start on Friday, but brighter later in the day.
