Forecast for today.

We are unfortunately back to predominantly grey skies and the risk of drizzle.  The radar images currently show that the clouds will remain will us for the majority of the day allowing only the odd glimpse of the sun from time to time.

The rain radar images also show that the clouds do contain a small amount of rain, however, if it does fall it will only be as light drizzle.  With such small accumulations of water in the clouds we can, hopefully, stay dry for the majority of the day.  The further north you go (towards Derbyshire and beyond)  the more likely it is you will catch a shower.

A noticeable feature of the early morning hours will be the SW breeze which will ease in speed as the day passes.  Currently it is blowing at near to 10 mph and this is causing the overall temperature to feel a couple of degrees cooler than the 6c it currently is.

As the day passes the top temperature will rise to around 8-9c and the minimum overnight will only fall to around 5-6c due to our “cloud blanket”.

If you are planning a day out my advice is still “go for it” but expect the odd shower.


Grey all day, odd drizzle shower possible.
