So says our somewhat odd stand-in weatherman Bob Westerdale (don’t give up your day job, Bob.)

Proper forecast:

Today: Cloudy with outbreaks of rain throughout the day, heavy at times, though with some brief dry spells possible also. Winds increasing during the afternoon, bringing a risk of gales later, especially on hills.


Cloudy with further heavy rain, beginning to clear in the small hours of Monday. Winds increasing further, with gales possible across all areas later, perhaps severe gales on hills.

Wrap up well!
