Forecast for today.

We are currently sitting on the western edge of a large band of rain cloud that is moving northwards.  The radar images suggest to me that the East Midlands and East Anglia are currently receiving some heavy rain and that it will last for some time.

We, however, are playing on the fringes and this means we will continue to run the risk of showers throughout the morning and even through the afternoon.  We may find that some of the showers are heavy at times.   As the day passes the showers should be less prolonged and less frequent.  By evening the threat of rain should be completely clear.

As you may have worked out for yourself it will be a mostly cloudy day and the chance of any sun breaking through will low.  Our top temperature will only be around 14-15c and our overnight low will be 11c.  Looking back at my record books the weather a year ago was almost a mirror image.

Moving forward over the bank holiday the pressure charts show that higher pressure is moving across the UK and by Sunday and Monday things could be back to being a little more settled.  There will, therefore, be plenty of opportunity to get out and about.


Cloudy with a chance of a shower particularly until mid afternoon.
