Rain will return overnight, and Tuesday looks like being wet and breezy until lunchtime, in moderate southerly winds and temperatures of up to 18ºC.

Tuesday afternoon will be brighter, and winds will drop of to a gentle breeze. 

Wednesday looks set to get off to a dry but overcast start, with rain likely i places by the afternoon. Variable winds will drop to a light breeze in temperatures of around 14ºC.
