It’s pretty much bang on.

 

 

 

 

 

It all means that things should clear up a bit this afternoon.  There will be some clouds returning for Saturday but nothing that will produce any major rain showers.

The rain will not return until Sunday when it looks both rainy, and potentially windy with a pretty strong system (for May) projected to come through.

Good luck to the Rugby Girls this weekend!
