Light to moderate westerly breezes will veer northwesterly and freshen through the day, becoming strong and gusty along western and southern coasts.

Cool, with highs of 14 to 17 degrees.

Blustery showers will continue through tonight, heaviest and most prevalent in the west and north of the country with the best of any clearer, drier interludes in the east and southeast.

Lows of 8 to 11 degrees Celsius in fresh and gusty west to northwest winds, reducing moderate inland.
