For the forecast we can expect waves of precipitation until Friday . At times heavy rain will occur as the upper low circulates off the coast. A wetter more organised frontal system is expected Thursday. Friday looks like we will have showers in the morning with a drying trend by the afternoon. Saturday looks mostly sunny with some cloud as a ridge of high pressure aloft establishes itself into Sunday\Monday morning. Another low will move into the area on Monday with the chance of showers in the afternoon leading up to heavy rain in the evening.
