Still cool with a few showers this week - but overall rain totals will be small. Monday and Tuesday will see a continuation of bright spells and scattered showers in a cool northwest wind. Wednesday the wind will die down and it should hold dry. More cloud about on Thursday and late in the day there will be some showery outbreaks of rain. A brighter day for Friday but still with the chance of a shower. But Saturday is shaping up to be a decent day with some sunshine and temperatures nudging back up to the 20°mark. At the moment it looks like Sunday will start fair but will quickly  cloud over with rain in the afternoon. The early days of next week are expected to be unsettled.
