So far today (at approximately 06:30 hours) we have received 1.8mm of rain and the radar images are showing that there are some further small clusters of rain cloud heading our way. These rain systems may simply blow by but there is a 70% chance of some further showers first thing this morning and again later this afternoon /early evening. In between these periods it should be mostly dry and mild day with the air pressure rising slowly.
The jet stream today will be running from north to south across the country but as the day passes it will move away from the UK to the east. The upper part of the “stream” will be above the UK. The subsequent “loops” created by the stream (see Thursday’s image below) to the NW and the SE will create low pressure systems and bring us some intermittent rain showers over the next few days.
Today’s top temperature will be around 8-9c and the overnight low will be around 6c. (This time last year the air temperature at 06:25 hours was -1.3c).
The wind will be deriving for the majority of the day from the WNW-NW and the average wind speed will be around 8mph. Gust speeds could reach 25mph.
Summary: Mild with some risk of rain but in the predominance a dry and cloudy day.
