A relatively mild day with mid-day temperatures of 9 to 13 degrees in a mainly moderate west to northwest breezes at first which will back southwest during the afternoon and freshen along Atlantic coasts.

Tonight will become cloudy and breezy with outbreaks of rain and drizzle. The rain will become persistent for a time in the northern half of the country before clearing southeastwards to just isolated showers by morning.

Lowest temperatures will stay around 5 to 10 degrees, coolest in the north. West to southwesterly winds will increase fresh and gusty, but veer west to northwest and decrease moderate to fresh by morning.
