Storms to ease off but rain is set to con­tinue

Belfast Telegraph - - NEWS -

THE gales that have bat­tered the north coast are set to sub­side to­day, as a Met Of­fice yel­low warn­ing for high winds across North­ern Ire­land and south­ern Scot­land ex­pired overnight.

Ac­cord­ing to the UK’s ex­pert fore­cast­ers, to­day will be­gin mainly dry and bright, but as the day goes on, strong west­erly winds will push thick­en­ing cloud and rain into Fer­managh and the west, reach­ing most ar­eas of North­ern Ire­land by lunchtime.

In the af­ter­noon the Met Of­fice ex­pects con­di­tions to be­come brighter — but show­ers will still be with us, the ex­perts say.

To­day’s max­i­mum tem­per­a­ture is ex­pected to be a cool but sea­sonal 7C.

To­mor­row is set to con­tinue change­able, with sunny spells and scat­tered show­ers fore­cast for all ar­eas.
