The rain cloud that I spoke about yesterday in now fairly well fragmented and although there is still a 40% risk of some drizzle or light rain this morning the risk is greatly reduced from what was on radar forecast yesterday.
The day will start off generally cloudy but as the day passes we will see some brighter spells break through. These brighter spells will help lift out top temperature up to around 18-19c. Overnight the clouds will dissipate even further and this will allow the temperature to reach a minimum of around 10c.
The wind will start the day blowing from the SW at an average speed of around 6-7mph. As the day passes the derivation of the wind will move towards the N and end the day from the WNW-NW. The average wind speed later in the day will be around 8-9mph.
The majority of schools return to lessons this week but the good news for staff, pupils and parents is that it should to be a week of mild weather with some brighter spells.
Summary. A mild day with cloud fragmented from time to time to allow for some brighter spells. A slight risk of drizzle / slight rain this morning.
