Elsewhere after a chilly start in places, any early showers will largely die out to leave a good deal of dry and bright weather.

There will still be a cool northwesterly wind today, although it will be lighter than of late and so it should feel more comfortable out and about. Temperatures will peak at 17C (63F).
