We’ve not seen much of it lately, with torrential downpours, strong winds and general mankyness having dominated the weather in Mansfield and Ashfield in recent weeks.

But, looking at the weekend forecast, it looks like Spring could finally be in the air.

Friday will carry on pretty much like today, with bright skies from 7am and throughout the day, with a brief period of patchy clouds between 3-4pm. We can expect highs of 13C around 2pm and very mild winds not exceeding 8mph.
