Hooray! It's nearly the weekend but unfortunately it wont provide the sunny weather we were hoping for...

As we approach the autumn season, we are now beginning to accept that the chance of sun and high temperatures are small.

And unfortunately any prays of the weekend bringing a better weather outlook have not been answered as it looks set to continue in similar fashion.

On Friday, the rain is expected strike at 11am and develop right through to 2pm.

Temperatures will rise to 14° at 10am and will stay that way until 6pm when it drops to 13° before it begins to get dark at 9pm.
