WEEKEND WEATHER: A lovely Saturday with spring like weather in and around Lorient, but it will change on Sunday
The weekend weather forecast is that we should see a wonderful warm spring like day on Saturday as the anticyclone, focused on the near Atlantic, retreats little by little towards the Azores as of Sunday.
On Sunday though it will change, with plenty of clouds covering the sky, that look overcast withso drizzle expected on and off during the afternoon.
