Cloudy and breezy today, with just a few bright spells. 

There will be further rain at times, persistent and sometimes heavy along the south coast, with some patches of fog, but more scattered and lighter elsewhere. 

Mild, with top temperatures 10 to 13 degrees, in fresh and gusty south to southeast winds.

Tonight

It will become windy and quite wet tonight, with some heavy and possibly thundery bursts of rain in places.

The strong and gusty southeast winds will veer south to southwesterly also. Lowest temperatures 8 to 10 degrees.
