Lingering heavy showers will gradually ease overnight and it will become generally cloudy, which will lead to a rather mild night for many. Minimum Temperature 9 C.
Another cloudy start with some patchy rain in places, however it will become increasingly drier and brighter during the day. Some sharp showers may develop across eastern parts later. Maximum Temperature 17 C.

Some showers mainly across eastern parts of the region on Wednesday and Thursday and a strengthening northerly wind. Elsewhere, largely drier and brighter with sunny interludes. Feeling cooler than recently.
