A pleasant weekend expected with mainly dry and mild weather
The last weekend of 2018 is set to be generally dry and mild with the chance of a few spots of rain, according to forecasters.
Today will be mainly cloudy and mild, with some light rain possible around midday, before some sunshine in the afternoon when the cloud breaks.
High temperatures will be around the 12C (53F) mark.
The early part of this evening will be clear with a possible slight ground frost in rural areas.
There could be some early morning rain tomorrow but that is expected to clear quickly, with some sunny intervals and light winds predicted.
It will again feel mild with highs of 12C.
Looking ahead to next week, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are expected to be much of the same – mainly dry and mild – before it begins to turn colder in the latter part of the week.
