Let us get the weather now. Hello. Good evening, well,
throughout this evening there will be variable amounts of cloud before
the next band of cloud pushhng in as we head overnight. It could be thick
enough to produce a bit of patchy light rain and drizzle. For most of
us it will stay dry. Temper`ture, while reflecting the cloud probably
round 12 or 13 degrees so it stays mild, the breeze fairly light. It
means tomorrow it will be a fairly cloudy day. From time to tile, there
will be outbreaks of light rain and drizzle. The breeze will frdshen.
Top temperatures 18 degrees. That is all from us tonight, enjoy the
