Today

There will be widespread heavy, and at times thundery showers today. These will become longer spells of rain locally, with the risk of spot flooding.

Showers will be most frequent in the west early on, then later in the north and east. There will be some bright or sunny spells in between, with showers beginning to fade from the west later.

Highest temperatures of 15 to 18 degrees Celsius. Winds will be mainly moderate west to northwest, increasing gusty in and around heavy showers, and all down along the Atlantic coastline.

Tonight

Still some heavy showers about early tonight with the ongoing risk of thunder. However it will become drier with just isolated showers. Some mist and fog patches, in light northwest breezes. Lowest temperatures of 9 to 12 degrees Celsius.
