LOW pressure was due to dampen summer spirits, according to Aberdeen Met Office forecaster Matt Roe.
Mr Roe said today was expected to be drier but grey skies and rain was said to continue to cloud out most of the sunshine in the North-east.
He said: “Conditions should improve today with scattered showers during the afternoon. There was due to be a cloudy start with some outbreaks of rain, mostly in the north, but these should have died away by the evening.”
Mr Roe warned the winds could pick up tonight.
He said: “Things should feel much fresher and clearer with temperatures around 15C (59F).
“We’ll probably see the highest temperatures of about 15C in Aberdeen and a low of 14C (57F) in Fraserburgh.
“Things will get quite breezy around the Moray Firth and Buchan coast.”
Mr Roe said the sun may make an appearance later in the week.
He said: “We’re expecting things to be dry with some sunshine on Thursday.
“Unfortunately Friday will see some more cloud and some more rain.
“The weather will remain quite unsettled over the weekend.”
