As the low moves onshore to the South we can expect unsettled weather for Sunday with a drying trend. A weak ridge will build for Monday with unsettled weather. Tuesday will likely see some showers but there are some inconsistencies in the models. Wednesday is looking unsettled as well with the low bringing a front onshore for Thursday into Friday. Overall a week of unsettled weather but looking fairly dry until later in the week. Will update before then!!

    Southerly flow aloft with overcast skies for today, showers to light rain by this afternoon.

    Low will spread some cloud and light precip into the area today.

    Unsettled Sunday with some cloud.

    Drying out Monday, likely some lingering cloud.

    Some moisture for Tuesday but again unsettled.
