Gales of Heavy Rain Sunday
Deep low pressure to the south west and a warm front will bring heavy spells of rain to the country during Sunday. As this retro grades to the south west, it allows high pressure to the north to do south as it turns more settled. Low pressure then returns late in the forecast. Temperatures are expected to rise, but this looks to be temporary as a colder northwest wind develops and we keep of the threat of a is one through next week.
