Today, 1 September 2015, sees the first day of the meteorological autumn although the astronomical autumn (the day of the equinox) is not until the 23 September. Either way I think we have all noticed a change in the climate over the last few days.
So far today 1.6mm of rain has fallen in our area and yesterday saw 15mm of rain. The East of England received the heaviest rainfall yesterday with around 45mm of rainfall in the 24 hour period.
Today will see less rain than yesterday but we will not be “shower free”. The radar images are showing a number of small rain carrying clouds around and we have a 75% chance of receiving some further rainfall this morning. This afternoon the risk reduces to around 60%.
As the day passes the clouds will fragment from time and, in particular, late this afternoon we will see some brighter spells break through. Our top temperature today will be around 15c and the overnight low will be around 10c.
The wind will be deriving from the WNW for much of the day and the average wind speed will be around 5 mph.
Summary : A partly cloudy day with the risk of some showers.
