Don’t pack away the brollies and wellies, with a 50 per cent chance of showers predicted to return on Saturday, and a 70-80 per cent chance of showers on Sunday.

However, today, Friday is expected to be mainly sunny along the coast, while further inland, early morning fog will burn off to a mainly sunny day.

Today’s temperatures will return to an almost spring-time top of 21 along the coast, but just 19 degrees in rural areas.

Along the coast, Saturday’s temperatures will range from 12-18 degrees, while on Sunday, the temperatures will be 11-18 degrees with possible showers on both days.

Saturday’s temperatures further inland will range from 10-18 degrees along with possible showers, while Sunday will be accompanied by showers and a temperature range of 9-18 degrees.

Holiday Monday will be wet with showers and a temperature range of 12-19 degrees along the coast and fog and then sunny with temperatures of 9-18 upcountry parts of the Great Lakes.
