Starting off fine and mostly dry tomorrow with a light to moderate easterly breeze. A few morning showers will develop across parts of the south. More cloud will build later in the afternoon too as easterly winds increase fresh at times in the south. Highest temperatures of 18 to 25 degrees generally, cooler in the east with an onshore breeze.
