Yesterday afternoon’s storm eventually saw 5.6mm of rain fall in our area. The good news is that there is no evidence of a repeat performance today. It is typical that when we head back to work or school that the sun comes out to play.
As I write this bog (approximately 06:30 hours) the air pressure is slowly increasing and we have a clear blur sky to start the day. By mid to late morning the cloud cover will begin to increase but the risk of any rain will remain low at around 20%.
This afternoon will also see the thermometer climb to around 13c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 5-6c. Last night’s minimum temperature was 4.2c at 05:45 hours.
The wind will be deriving from the a generally westerly direction for much of the day today. The average wind speed will be around 7mph.
As the week continues the jet stream will eventually be sitting below the UK (around late Thursday / Friday). This jet stream position will allow for warmer air temperatures but, also, the risk of some storms.
Summary: A bright start but becoming cloudier later. Mild air temperatures and a steady breeze.
