My understanding is that first vs. only is related to fallback behaviour,
though I don't know what kind of forwarding failures cause named to revert
to iterating. [I don't use forwarding myself, but I view `forward first`
with deep suspicion since it looks like the kind of thing that turns
misconfigurations into performance problems and mysterious weirdness.]

Moderate or rough, occasionally very rough at first in Plymouth, then
occasionally slight later. Thundery showers. Good, occasionally poor.
