Although the day will be mild at first, temperatures are expected to drop to around 6 °C. The maximum temperature is set to reach 12 °C during the day. 

A few showers are possible overnight, but a breeze in the air should ensure it will be generally frost-free.

The afternoon will turn cloudier with patchy rain, mainly over western hills. Strengthening winds by the afternoon.

The maximum temperature is set to reach 10 °C.
