The jet stream continues to oscillate from north to south across the UK and this will bring us some variable weather across the week. For this morning the “stream” is predominantly across the lower half of the UK with our area sitting on the upper edge. This means that we will have a bit of the four seasons for our weather today.
We have already seen a small amount of rain fall in the area this morning (before 06:30 hours – 0.4mm) and we have a 60% chance of further light showers.
As the day passes the jet stream will move further south and this will mean that the northern climate will dominate in our area bringing some higher air pressure, clearer skies and cooler temperatures. Our top temperature will be around 6c and the overnight low will be around 1c.
This afternoon will see the cloud cover fragment from time to time to allow for some brighter spells. During the evening the cloud cover will either dissipate or thin to leave us with some clear, cool spells overnight.
The wind will be deriving predominantly from a SSW-WSW arc. The average wind speed will be around 8mph with gusts up to 20mph. The wind will reduce the “feel” of the air temperature by around 2c.
