A WET START to the weekend as rain, heavy in places, extends across the province. Thundery downpours are possible, but they will clear eastwards early in the afternoon. Sunny spells and well scattered showers will follow in the clearance. Highest temperatures of 14 to 17 degrees in light to moderate southwesterly winds, gradually veering northwesterly behind the rain.
