Turning settled and colder for Monday and Tuesday. Quite a lot of uncertainty for later in the week. Stay tuned.

Weather Advisories

There's lots of excitement surrounding this weekend's cold northerly winds. For most it will simply be a notable drop in temperature, night-time frosts and wintry showers (hence the grey 'chance' shading). With that said those at high elevation are most prone at seeing accumulations and heavy snow, around 300-400meters. It is important to note some people may not see any snow showers instead just getting rain, sleet, hail.

Temperature wise expect maxima daytime of 5-7°C in the north, 6-9°C in the south and frost for all with wind chill making it feel colder. There still remains a chance of snow outside the shaded area but it is unlikely.
