After a record breaking Easter Monday, and the warmest easter spell in 8 years, everything goes back to more typical late-April weather as the second half of this week arrives.

Temperatures go down day-by-day. Showers develop and winds pick up.


Another fine, dry and sunny day for many. It will feel warm in the sunshine, although it will be on the breezy side. Highs 24°C.

After a fine end to the day, it'll stay dry with clear spells overnight. Some low cloud will drift in from the east to give some hill fog by dawn. Lows 6°C.


After a dry and bright start, cloud and outbreaks of rain, heavy and possibly thundery, will move north across all parts during the afternoon. Rain will clear north later. Highs 20°C.


Staying unsettled with further heavy and thundery showers Thursday and Friday.

Possibly a spell of wet and windy weather arriving from the west Saturday, with coastal gales possible. Feeling fresher with temperatures initially back down to average, a few degrees cooler still by Friday.
