Parts of the jet stream are now currently sitting well above the UK (see image below) and this situation allows for high air pressure systems to settle over the UK. The outcome of this is another dry and at times bright day for us in our area.
The day will start off a little cloudy but this will only present around 7% risk of any rain. As the day passes the cloud will begin to fragment and we will see some sustained brighter spells this afternoon. Our top temperature today will be around 11-12c. The sky will remain clear until 02:00 hours tomorrow morning which means that there will be plenty of opportunity for our astronomers to make some observations. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 2c.
The wind will start off from the NE before spending the middle part of the day deriving from the SE. It will end the day back deriving from the NE. This wind direction will bring a chill factor of around 2c (reduces the feel of the temperature by about 2c) at the average wind speed we will see today of 6mph.
High air pressure brings another dry and at times bright day.
