Strong winds and spotty showers forecasted

From sun to storms, what to expect this week


Looks like we're in for a bit of a weather rollercoaster ride, all thanks to a pesky low-pressure system hanging around.

Today's forecast

So, picture this: some clouds, some sun, and scattered showers here and there. But wait, by the afternoon, it's like the rain wants to join the party, especially down south, maybe even bringing along some thunder. Winds will be doing their thing, sometimes mellow, sometimes kicking it up a notch, hitting about 4 to 5 Beaufort, with occasional bursts up to 6 Beaufort along the coast.

Seas might get a little choppy, then ramping up to rougher waters as the day wears on. Temperature-wise, expect highs of around 23°C inland, a comfortable 21°C by the coast, and a cooler 12°C up in the hills.

Tonight's scene

Clear skies for the most part, but don't be surprised if you catch a glimpse of some extra clouds drifting by. Winds will keep their cool, mostly coming from the southwest to northwest, keeping things moderate at around 4 Beaufort, though they might show off a bit, hitting 5 Beaufort along the coast.

Seas will stay a bit bumpy, especially out west and down south. As for temps, things are cooling off, dropping to around 9°C inland, about 15°C along the coast, and down to a chilly 4°C up high, where frost might even make an appearance.

Looking ahead

Wednesday's got a bit of a mixed bag with clouds, showers, and maybe even some thunder popping up here and there.

Towards the weekend

Thursday and Friday are shaping up to be a mix of clouds and sun, with a chance of showers in the afternoon, especially if you're up in the mountains.

And hey, despite the ups and downs, temperatures should hover a tad above what we'd usually expect this time of year.
