Weather should be dry

It’s a good excuse to dress up and have some fun and the good news is that the advance weather forecast suggests that whilst it may be cloudy, it should stay dry until Sunday February 11, so although the temperature will most likely range from 16° in the day to 12° in the evening, everyone should stay dry.
