I must say, I’ve seen more action out of a weak cold front than this so called active one.
A trickle of a shower here in Whitby and it’s gone.

As we said all week (and as the forecast says above for your area, which is really western NI more than Wellington in many ways), some regions in the west would only get a few showers – no more than a small cold front. Was never going to be widespread severe-wise, just isolated pockets of it and clearly you weren’t in one of those isolated pockets! 🙂

Cheers
