  • Weather for today and Tuesday is a mixed bag, with clouds, sun, and a few showers (mainly tomorrow). Highs for both days will be 15-17°C.
  • Wednesday and Thursday come with a high pressure system and are looking like the warmest of the week with temperatures up to 18°C. Wednesday will also be quite blustery with a NW wind as the high pressure builds. 
  • Upcoming weekend: one word...STORMY
