Still not much rain about this week but the trend is for it to get more unsettled as we head towards next weekend. Some sunshine on Monday with the chance of a shower, especially late in the day. Some sunshine also for Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will be OK. More cloud about on Thursday with more of a threat of showers. Showers are likely for Friday. (There will be a spell of persistent heavy rain for a time overnight Friday). So a damp start for Saturday but it will dry up with some sunshine. Sunday will be a pleasant day with some nice sunshine and pretty good too for the Public Holiday Monday. The outlook for next week is still a bit mixed, some nice sunny periods but instersperesed with a few rainy spells.
