High Tamara, as Ron correctly says, the 16th is cloud and rain, the 17th is heavy cloud, but they normally show the symbol that dark at night, I believe it is an error, I will look at the site later and see if it has been corrected and re-post if so.

Thanks John, the 17th really had me puzzled! If it is 'correct', I'll plan on staying indoors that day as it looks like it could be 'judgement day'!  ;D

We've had a couple of very light showers today and it's been quite cool with lots of cloud and a strong easterly wind. At the moment it is pouring down accompanied by lots of lightning over the mountains.
