Sat 04 Oct 2014

Heavy rain in the morning, with gale force winds and hill fog patches over the higher tops. These conditions are expected to clear by midday, with a cooler air mass to follow and scattered showers, but generally very good visibility. Winds becoming westerly and moderating in the clearer conditions.

Sun 05 Oct 2014

A bright start, with isolated showers, and moderate southerly winds. However, the showers are expected to become more frequent and heavy through the day, perhaps merging at times into longer spells of rain. Also, an accompanying risk of hail/thunder. Strong and gusty south to southwesterly winds are also expected to develop, perhaps with gales over the higher tops at times. Visibility good or very good out of showers, but poor in heavier showers.

Mon 06 Oct 2014

Showery conditions are likely for much of the day. The showers are likely to become frequent and heavy for a time, perhaps merging into longer spells of rain, and accompanied by strong southerly winds, with poor visibility at times. However, there is uncertainty regarding the detail/timing for these potentially poorer conditions at this stage.
