Low pressure remains largely unaltered parked to the south of Iceland. However, it is a new frontal system that is bringing in today's rain from the south-west. The system is relatively slow moving and today's rain tied to a warm front will follow on with a warm sector tomorrow and then some strong winds and rain on Saturday as the cold front moves through.


So the very autumnal weather continues across the county today. We are likely to see several hours of fairly light rain this morning, this rain clearing during the first part of the afternoon with the remainder of the day staying dry albeit cloudy. The breeze will be from the south-west, gentle at first but tending to freshen as the rain moves through later becoming moderate. Top temperatures today will peak at around 14C. The presence of the warm sector overnight will mean that temperatures change very little, perhaps following by just a degree or two. It will remain very cloudy.


On the whole, Friday won't be too bad a day. We will be between two frontal systems and although the day will start fairly cloudy, we can expect some brighter spells to emerge during the course of the afternoon. We are likely to retain a moderate south-westerly breeze and it will feel mild with highs expected to reach 17C. Overnight will remain largely dry, although it will be turning cloudier from the west towards dawn - a sign of things to come on Saturday. Lows will fall to 12C. So the cold front will be moving through on Saturday. The main impact initially for the county will be an increase in the breeze now to a fresh south-westerly. Through the morning it should remain essentially dry, obviously very cloudy, with some showers developing during the afternoon. However, it will be through the evening and overnight when we will see the heaviest of the rain and we can expect some torrential downpours with the risk of some localised flooding. All the while the wind will be a fresh to south-westerly. The rain is likely to move through in three distinct phases, but finally drier and brighter conditions will develop through Sunday morning. The wind will remain fresh until the afternoon. However, the day may well end with further heavy showers.
