clouding over from the north-west as we head into the afternoon,

will be getting up to a high of around 13 Celsius.


For the rest of the week, it looks fairly decent.


Lots of cloud around as we head into Tuesday,

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

cloud rolling in during the latter part of the night but towns and
