Some of the showers will be thundery in nature with the risk of hail. Top temperatures of 10 to 14 degrees in moderate to fresh southwest winds. Becoming dry in many areas overnight but a few showers will continue, especially in the northwest. Minimum temperatures of 4 to 7 degrees in mostly light westerly winds.
