After a generally clear night there is a very light grass frost to contend with today (the temperature low was 2c) but the frost will all be gone by around 7:00-7:30 hours. The good news is the day starts off bright.
Sunny periods will be the theme of the day although we will see some cloud from time to time. Despite the cloud the chance of any rain today is less than 7%. The cloud cover will be more prevalent overnight. Our top temperature today will be around 15c and the UV index will be around 3-4. Overnight with the increased cloud cover the minimum temperature will be around 4c.
Today’s breeze will be light and deriving from the ESE to the S. The average wind seppd will be around 4mph.
I have studied the jet stream and pressure charts and can see that there is a low pressure system building to the S of us. This will reach our area over the weekend and increase the risk of some rain. The jet stream, that is currently lying to the N of the UK, will begin to move S over the next few days. By Monday we will have a more W-E jet stream position. This position will generally bring mild but cloudy conditions and helps confirm the showery weather the pressure chart suggests.
Generally bright with some occasional cloud.
