Sun 24 Aug 2014

It will be an unusually cold start to the day with a chance of grass frost in the peaks after a cold, clear night with light winds. This will lead to a dry, bright and mostly sunny day with light and variable winds. Chance of some increased cloud amounts late afternoon with the odd shower possible, as a new weather system approaches from the west.

Issued at: 0341 on Fri 22 Aug 2014

Mon 25 Aug 2014

Its likely that it will be a wet start to the day with persistent rain and perhaps some gusty winds in exposure. It should brighten up during the course of the afternoon with a scattering of heavy showers possible, but at this stage there is some uncertainty with the timing of the clearance. Temperatures returning to normal for the time of year.

Issued at: 0341 on Fri 22 Aug 2014

Tue 26 Aug 2014

Perhaps occasionally cloudy with a few showers. Again, some uncertainty at this stage but it looks like it may dry up during the afternoon with some sunny spells.
