This Evening and Tonight:
A windy night with gales likely for western coasts and hills. Any clear spells in the east will soon cloud over, the cloud thick enough for some patchy light rain, mainly over western hills. A mild night for most. Minimum temperature 5 deg C (41 deg F).
A band of rain and strong to gale force winds will push southeastwards, reaching western areas late morning, spreading to all parts through the afternoon. Rain clearing later. Maximum temperature 12 deg C (54 deg F).
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
Colder than of late, with blustery showers, these will be heavy with thunder at times and wintry too, especially over hills. Showers gradually easing Sunday, windy throughout.
