Sunny spells and mainly dry during the morning, then a band of showery rain, perhaps heavy on some western upslopes, will affect most parts for a time early to mid-afternoon. Turning drier again with bright or sunny spells into the evening.


Good or very good, but moderate in showers and rain, poor in any early mist and very poor in hill fog.

Hill fog

Widespread, overnight hill fog with cloud bases around 350 metres, soon lifting and clearing after dawn.

Southwesterly 25-30mph with gusts 40mph.


Valleys Plus 13 becoming Plus 17 Celsius
600 m Plus 12 becoming Plus 12 Celsius
Freezing level Will be well above the tops.



Feeling cooler with noticeably stronger winds at all levels. Bright or sunny spells will be limited with generally a lot of cloud, giving some showers or longer spells of rain at times. Driest conditions probably in the morning with most of the showers and rain expected during the afternoon and evening.


Moderate or poor in showers and rain and very poor in hill fog.

Bright or sunny spells with rather strong westerly winds, possibly with gusts to gale force over peaks. Highest gusts associated with well scattered showers, which could be rather heavy, however some locations could stay dry all day.


A mainly dry day with some sunny spells is expected, along with fresh northwesterly winds which will decrease in strength through the day.


Another mainly dry day is in prospect with moderate southwesterly winds, slowly increasing in strength. Current indications are for increasing cloudiness in the afternoon bringing a risk of mainly light rain and drizzle, but confidence currently low for this detail.
