BRING your umbrellas today as there is a high chance of showers.

The Bureau of Meteorology are predicted a 70% chance of showers for us although it will most likely be this afternoon and during the evening.

There is a chance of a thunderstorm but light winds.

During the morning there will areas of fog, so please drive carefully and put your fog lights on.
