Changeable weather this week. Monday will be an OK day with some cloud and sunhine but still quite mild for the time of year. A big change on Monday evening though as it turns windier and cloudier. A low pressure system incorporating the remains of hurricane Gonzalo will pass close to our NW coast. It will be quite windy for a time especially around midnight with some driving rain. Things will improve during Tuesday with the chance of one or two showers and it will feel fresher. It will turn cloudier during Wednesday but should remain dry. A weak rain belt will edge down from the northwest during Thursday. This could be slow to clear on Friday but it should brighten up again in the afternoon. Not a bad day for Saturday and Sunday with some bright spells and turn milder again. At present, there is a chance too it could well stay dry for the start of next week too.
