Forecast for today.
The early morning will remain dry, however, a large band of rain is moving across the country from the west to the east (our usual weather pattern). This first band will reach our area by around 09:30 hours and we could have showers anytime from then until around 13:00 hours. The showers will be generally light. There is a possibility of further rain during the afternoon, however, the path is not yet entirely clear on the radar service I subscribe to. (I will update via twitter).
It will be a cooler day with a top temperature of only 6c and with a steady breeze coming from a generally W direction it could feel a degree cooler than that.
As the day passes the clouds will thin and we will be left with a dry night with temperatures falling to around 3c and even 2c in more rural areas.
Cool with showers from the west clearing later.
