Forecast for today.

The overnight fog is still with us and with only a light wind blowing it will take some time to clear.  (Fog is defined as being when visibility less than 1Km.  Mist is when visibility is greater than 1Km).  The reason we are getting mist and fog at the moment is because we are between a warm and cold weather front and have a warm southerly wind.  These factors are helping the water in the atmosphere to condense and form suspended water droplets i.e. the mist / fog.

The high water content in the atmosphere will leave all of the grass quite wet and the leaves on the footpaths may be slippery underfoot.  Care should, therefore, be taken.

It will remain a mostly grey day with only the chance of the occasional glimpse of some brightness.  Our top temperature will struggle to reach 8-9c but overnight it will remain warm with the low only falling a degree or so from the daytime high.

The wind will remain light and from a general southerly direction (SW-SE).

Summary

A grey day with mist slow to clear.
