Dry and sunny across much of the island this afternoon, but as the light to moderate westerly wind backs to the south or southwest, there is a threat of some coastal mist and fog affecting southern and eastern coasts at times. Feeling warm or very warm in the sunshine with temperatures up to 16 or 17°C at best, but a few degrees cooler along the coasts where mist or fog develops.
This evening and tonight will be dry but with extensive low cloud developing as the coastal mist and fog becomes more widespread. Minimum temperature no lower than 6°C.
Tomorrow will start cloudy with coastal mist and fog which will lift and break during the morning, allowing sunny intervals to develop. Highest temperature around 16°C in the sunshine and light winds. Then turning cloudy overnight with a spell of heavy rain moving in later.
Any lingering rain at first on Sunday will quickly clear away leaving the day mostly dry with bright or perhaps sunny spells. A bit cooler than of late in the moderate to fresh southwest wind with highs of 12°C.
