Cold, wet weather to return tomorrow

A WEAK, colder air mass won’t cause it to rain today but may bring northerly gusts before the return of wet conditions tomorrow.

Temperatures will drop again and stay in the single digits Celsius from tomorrow to the weekend with lingering drizzles. Skies will turn cloudy on Sunday with a slight increase in temperatures.

The mercury today is forecast to fluctuate between 6 and 11 degrees Celsius with a mix of sunshine and clouds.

The high will fall to 7 degrees Celsius tomorrow due to the expansion of cold air with a low of 4. A high of 8 is expected on Friday and Saturday while the low will range between 4 and 6 degrees.

A warmer and dry Sunday is expected to see a high of 10 degrees Celsius and a low of 6.

March is usually the month when winter ends and spring begins, according to the bureau. Warm areas of moisture will be active in March and, when they encounter the remaining cold air, will produce frequent changes in weather including downpours.

The average arrival date of the meteorological spring from 1981 to 2010 is March 17. But whether spring arrives in March of this year depends on the temperatures.

The bureau said that only if the average temperature is not less than 10 degrees Celsius for five consecutive days will the first day of that period be determined to be the day that spring arrived.
