Remaining quite windy with mild southwesterly winds, mostly overcast conditions and some upslope drizzle over higher ridges during the morning.

Fri 04 Dec 2015

A much drier and brighter day, with limited cloud during the morning and a moderate southwesterly breeze. A cold start though with some frost and patchy ice likely in places.

By midnight becoming very windy with gales or storm force winds.

Very windy at first with gales or storm force winds. As rain arrives through the morning so the wind will ease, becoming light through the afternoon and evening. However spells of sometimes heavy rain will persist through the rest of the day.
