Forecast for today.

The radar images show that we will have some very thin or completely fragmented cloud cover today and this will bring us some brighter spells during the day.

When you step outside you will note that it is a lot cooler than our most recent days and with a breeze blowing from the SW the actual top temperature of around 5-6c will feel like only 1-2c.

The breezy conditions will be with us all day with an average speed of around 10mph and gusts will reach around 25-30mph.  Tomorrow the pressure charts show the isobars very tightly packed and these conditions will bring us gusts of up to 50mph in exposed areas (average speed around 20mph).

As the daylight hours pass the clouds will begin to increase and will eventually bring us some rain.  I expect that we will make our journeys in to work tomorrow in wet and windy conditions.

Returning to today and there is a small chance of a rogue isolated  shower, however, these conditions have a small probability and for the majority the day will remain dry and mostly bright.


Mostly dry, bright and cooler than of late.  Cloud increasing and bringing rain later in the evening / overnight.
