A bumpy ride today, but there is some cheer!

Today: A mixture of sunny spells and showers, some of these heavy at times with a risk of thunder and possibly hail. Strong winds, locally gale force in the north-west, gradually easing. Feeling fresher than of late. Maximum Temperature 12 °C.

Tonight: Rather cloudy and wet with rain expected for the first part of the night. From midnight it should turn largely dry with some clear spells and perhaps the odd shower. Minimum Temperature 2 °C.

Friday: A largely dry and sunny day with light winds, although the odd shower is likely to develop through the day. Maximum Temperature 12 °C.
