Sunday temperatures will spike early in the day into the upper 50s to lower 60s. A weather bulletin issued by the Met Centre here said heavy rainfall (7- 11cm in 24 hours) was most likely to occur at one or two places in the State till Sunday morning. Lingering showers can't be ruled out through the afternoon, but rain should be ending altogether by Saturday evening.

Clouds will continue to filter in during the afternoon as we warm up to a daytime high a degree or so above freezing. South wind 10 to 17 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 25 miles per hour.

The weather service said today will bring a chance of rain and thunderstorms and a high around 75. Snow showers will begin in that area likely around and after 2pm but really start collecting more as the evening rolls on. Then there is a chance of showers after midnight.

Temperatures continue to drop for Monday as cooler air moves in and clouds linger - highs only in the upper 50s.

A brief tornado is possible, but the main threat from any severe thunderstorms will be damaging winds up to 60-70 miles per hour. Monday night will be clear with lows in the lower 40s.
