3 Day Outlook
Wednesday night will be mostly cloudy and dry, apart from some hill or coastal drizzle in the north and west. Fresh, gusty northwest to west winds will tend to moderate overnight and it will be mild. Thursday will be another mostly cloudy day countrywide, with outbreaks of drizzle or rain affecting mainly northern and western counties. Winds will back westerly and will remain moderate or locally fresh, with temperatures well up to normal for the end of November.
There will be little change Thursday night or for the start of Friday. However, winds backing southwesterly will strengthen on Friday morning and a band of rain will arrive in the northwest and west. This band of rain will extend eastwards to affect all areas on Friday afternoon but will clear during the evening, leaving just isolated showers. Winds will veer westerly as the rain clears and will remain strong, as temperatures fall rapidly early in the night. During Friday night, showers will affect only western and northern coastal counties and, despite the fall in temperatures, the ongoing windy conditions will prevent significant frost.
By Saturday morning, rain will be gathering in western counties and will soon sweep eastwards, turning heavy in places and driven by strong southwesterly winds. However, there will be a rapid clearance to showers by Saturday evening, with temperatures falling overnight as winds veer westerly. Despite these colder conditions, continuing strong westerly winds will prevent frost. Sunday next will remain windy with showers giving way to longer outbreaks of rain in many places and temperatures rising a little.
