Showers will become confined to the west and north later. Strong and gusty westerly winds will decrease fresh southwest by morning. However, along Atlantic coasts winds will increase this evening and early tonight and moderate later in the night. Lowest temperatures remain around 5 to 8 degrees.

Tomorrow, Saturday will be another windy day. It will be mostly dry with some bright or sunny spells in the east at first but showery rain in the west and north will become more widespread during the morning. Westerly winds will increase strong or very strong and gusty again. Top temperatures will be around 8 to 11 degrees. Saturday night will continue windy with showery rain.
