The flow will switch later today to Northerly for slightly warmer temperatures Tuesday but unsettled weather will continue with some rain showers in the mix as well. Not a great looking forecast for the next week with mostly cloudy conditions, some sunny breaks and occasional showers. Looking at the long term hopefully there will be a shift to more summer like weather by next week. Too many grey days lately!!!
