Monday's motivational message for the week:

“Count your life by smiles, not tears. Count your age by friends, not years. Happy birthday.”

Dad

Seven-day forecast:

Mainly cloudy with showers or spells of rain that will likely be heavy at times and perhaps wintry. Overcast on Tuesday morning with some spots of light rain under the thickest cloud. Brightening up into the afternoon with a few showers possibly lingering in one or two spots. Wednesday will see a much brighter day with very little cloud around. Turning increasingly cloudy and windy on Thursday, as a band of rain sweeps in from the west, possibly wintry over high ground with frosty mornings and cold nights.
