Partly cloudy with a chance of hot water bottles.

After a Sunday evening low of 8°C, we’ll be headed for a partly cloudy start to the week, with a medium chance of showers. We’ll reach a top of 13°C by early afternoon before westerly winds of 15-25 km/h turn southerly in the late afternoon, bringing with them a chilly overnight low of 6°C. If you’d already put your hot water bottles away, you’ll need to bring them out again; we’re in for some cold nights this week.
