Sun 24 May 2015

A murky start, with extensive hill fog and spells of rain, perhaps heavy for a time locally. While the bulk of the rain should soon clear southeastwards, it will leave a legacy of low cloud. By around mid-afternoon, some sunshine should begin to break through, with the cloudbase finally lifting clear of the higher peaks to give a pleasant end to the day.
