The rain clouds should lift this morning and the threat of rain diminish until it is near zero this afternoon.  Here is the rain forecast for right now, 8AM Friday.

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!
