Tonight, hundreds of bike fans got the opportunity to meet some
of their motorcycling heroes in Coleraine as the official
countdown to this year's international Northern West 200
A star-studded line-up of teams and riders has been revealed for this
year's International North West 201 of the real stars of the show will
be here for the 24th time. That's right. It seems like yesterday the
first time I came all those years ago in the 90s soap three decades I
have been racing here, great night to night, great to have or the fans
out and new comers and old guys a new guise. It is poised for an
incredibly good Northwest 200. I imagine that is one of the big
attractions for you, racing at over 200 mph. Very special, unique, fans
can get closer. It is amazing. The first time last year, it went over
200, I did 204, which was a thrill. It is only a few away. Before we
know it, we are packing the campus and the trucks up and hurling down
that road at 200 mph. And we will have comprehensive coverage online,
on TV and on radio and for the first time ever, the Northwest 200 will be
broadcast on BBC network television. It has all been a bit dull in the
weather today, grey and cloudy not a lot happening. This picture from our
Weather Watcher sums up the story for today. As we go into the
overnight period though, we will see more in the way of rain. Light and
drizzly to begin with and mostly confined for the higher ground but
it sets the tone for what is to come tomorrow morning. We will see rain
through the first part of Thursday. The skies were clear and bright
later on but that comes with a sting in the tail. We will see our warmest
temperatures joined the morning while this rain is with us. Once
that clears away though, we move into cooler air and those daytime
highs will drop away through the afternoon on Thursday. You can see a
better on this wider view. The warmest temperatures in front of
that weather front, clearer, cold behind, even the chance of a few
wintry showers. A pretty cool with showers across the whole of Ireland.
Overnight, we are in that cold air mass and is the showers coming, much
cooler night and we have seen of light. Friday, said Patrick's date,
not a pretty picture at all. The rain coming into the day, heaviest
in the West, the best chance of any drier conditions for the East but
virtually all of Ireland will see rain as we go through the day and
unfortunately, St Patrick's day is the least good of the next few days
without rain at its heaviest. Our next BBC Newsline is at 6:25am
