As we discussed in yesterday’s post the UK is clearly divided between low and high air pressure systems. The good news is that we are on the high air pressure side which means some bright spells particularly this morning.
This afternoon the cloud coverage will increase a little and that will help restrict the top temperature to a maximum of around 14c. This is still very pleasant for the time of year. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 9c.
Whilst there is a chance of rain today it is only a risk of around 15-20%. I certainly would not worry about rain if you are planning a venture out.
Whilst talking of rain. Many may think that we have received plenty of rain this month, however, the 62mm so far that I have recorded is only 2mm above the long-term average for the region.
The wind will, again, be bringing in some mild air from the SW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph. We could see gust speeds reach around 12-15mph.
Finally, can I take this opportunity to wish my mom, Joyce in Pelsall, a very happy birthday. I believe she is 23 this year give or take a year or two. Amazing really when she has children aged 59, 55 and 50!
