The rain is expected to clear up by this evening, although temperatures could drop to zero celsius.

Flooding of some roads and low lying land could be expected in those areas, but property flooding is not anticipated.

The rain will return by noon tomorrow (Sunday) along with strong to gale force winds in the early afternoon.
