The weather this year is making sure to remind us that Christmas is literally round the corner, with rain forecasted during both Saturday and Sunday and strong winds hitting the island.

If you’re planning Christmas shopping, dress up well as the wind is expected to pick up further in the afternoon. Weather forecasters say that thunder is possible in the afternoon, with the wind continuing in the late afternoon and evening. The chance of rain on Saturday night stands at 70% and winds could occasionally gust over 80km/h.

Tomorrow, Sunday, is expected to be mostly cloudy and windy with showers developing later in the day.
