5 Day Weather Forecast.
Today Tuesday 24th January
Mild and cloudy this evening and tonight with rain at times but dry periods also. Extensive low cloud and fog on hills and on some exposed coasts. Minimum temperatures of 8 to 10 degrees and becoming windy overnight with southerly winds increasing strong and gusty. Heavy rain developing in western areas later in the night.
Very windy tomorrow with strong and gusty southerly winds with spells of heavy rain spreading quickly eastwards in the morning and a risk of some spot flooding. Much colder clearer weather will follow eastwards during the afternoon with scattered rain and hail showers. Temperatures of 8 to 11 degrees in the early morning will fall to between 4 and 8 degrees during the afternoon and winds will become moderate or fresh southwesterly.
General : It will be a lot colder than recent weeks with frost at night and some icy patches too. Wednesday night : Cold and breezy with clear spells and occasional showers of rain hail and sleet. Before dawn a few may fall as snow on high ground. Widespread frost also despite the wind with icy patches. Lowest air temperatures -1 to plus 3 C. Thursday will be a very cold blustery day with temperatures in low single figures probably ranging just 3 to 6 C. There will be widespread rain or hail showers with some sleet and hill snow at times. Winds strong and gusty westerly. Cold and windy overnight also with clear spells and occasional rain and hail showers with a few possibly falling as sleet or wet snow on high ground. Winds will be strong and gusty west to northwesterly. Lowest temperatures 1 to 4 C. with frost and icy patches in places despite the wind. Friday will be cool and breezy with bright or sunny spells and occasional rain or hail showers. Top temperatures 5 to 7 C. in fresh and gusty northwest winds. Very cold Friday night as winds fall off light with a sharp to severe frost and icy roads. Some patches of mist and dense fog are likely also. Lowest temperatures -2 to plus 2 C. The outlook for the weekend is not certain yet. There are some indications for a lot of dry cool weather for Saturday and Sunday with slack winds and cold frosty foggy nights. But milder breezy weather with southwest winds may yet win out and in this scenario more changeable conditions would prevail with some rain at times and little or no frost.
A man was riding his Harley along a California beach when suddenly the sky cleared above his head and in a booming voice the Lord said
‘Because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways I will grant you one wish.’ The biker pulled over and said
‘Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want.’
The Lord said ‘Your request is materialistic. Think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.’
The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally he said ‘Lord I wish that I and all men could understand women; I want to know how she feels inside what she’s thinking when she gives me the silent treatment why she cries what she means when she says nothing’s wrong why she snaps and complains when I try to help and how I can make a woman truly happy.’
The Lord replied ‘You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?’
