After being away for much of this week, I'm only putting out a shortened forecast now (Friday). After Friday's rainbelt has pushed through the weather will settle down. Cool by night but both Saturday and Sunday will be fine dry days with some nice sunshine. A little more cloud about next week but with high pressure in close attendance, the weather will stay dry for most of next week too and become warmer.
