Yesterday I said that rainfall was expected, and it's raining now. Just light for the moment but heavier rain expected around mid-day and the afternoon.

Hopefully it should be clearing up before tomorrow morning with better conditions expected - mostly cloudy but the chance of some sunshine.

Still rather mild and not getting as cold as we perhaps expected today.

More rain is lined up for the end of the week but with colder conditions there might be a chance of some light snow in higher areas.
