“Showers may be heavy in the north and fall as a mixture of sleet or snow, especially on high ground. Any strong winds will ease through the day too. Lighter winds and cooler on Sunday.

“Then there are signals for an Atlantic-driven and unsettled theme through the following week. We are likely to see further spells of wind and rain, followed by drier, more showery periods.”
