More unsettled this week. For Monday there will be a little sunshine but also some showery outbreaks of rain at first. More continuous rain for a time on Tuesday. Early on Wednesday morning more rain will spread up from the south west but it should brighten up later in the morning but there may be some showers later. Thursday we will have slack winds with some sunshine - so not too bad a day. Friday will start fair but it will cloud over with rain by evening time. Saturday is shaping up to be a poor day. Cold with outbreaks of rain and breezy east winds. Some rain is still likely at first on Sunday but clearing up later. Outlook for next week and into the start of May is for cool, showery weather.
