Some rain at times this week and whereas it will be mild for the most part, there will be colder interludes. Monday will continue mild and largely dry. During Tuesday a rain band will move down from the northwest and we will lose the mild air. Tuesday afternoon will feel cold and wet and it will be followed by a ground frost Tuesday night. On Wednesday it will brighten up to give a fresh, dry day. Dry and cloudy for Thursday but it will turn a bit misty late in the day. More rain then for Friday but it will turn a little milder (and breezier) again. For the weekend we will see some sunshine and a few showers. The outlook for next week is for colder weather as we head into November. Keep warm !
