Mon 25 May 2015

Monday should be a largely dry, albeit rather cloudy day, with most areas staying dry throughout aside from the odd spot of drizzle. There will be some periods hill fog around particularly at first and a layer of higher cloud means that any sunny intervals will be fleeting. A slightly humid day in the Park.
