“So tomorrow here is this change of air coming our way, you can see the warmer yellows and ambers indicating the temperatures are on the rise.

“We start tomorrow with sun breaks in the cloud, but essentially the system coming to the south-west with that change of air moves across southern areas bringing a lot of cloud with it, some dampness as well, hill fog and coastal fog.
