According to Andy, the warm spell will come to an end Thursday night-Friday morning as a cold front will sweep across the area. This front is expected to come through dry. Over the weekend low pressure will approach the region with more clouds and a better chance for some wet weather too. The weekend will also be much cooler too due to the clouds, showers and a cool moist flow of air from off the Atlantic.
