Forecast for today.

After yesterday’s early morning rain we are now moving back to a phase of dry weather as high pressure is once again moving across our area.  At the moment we are in an early phase and several ridges of high pressure are moving northwards across the UK. 

The pressure “ridges” will help bring some light breeze during today.  The average wind speed will be around 5-8mph.  The wind direction will be from the WSW moving towards the W.

You will see that from the jet stream image below that by Wednesday the jet stream will be pushed northwards by the high pressure.  This will bring us some bright and temperate southerly climate.

Although there will be some cloud cover this will not be dense enough to prevent plenty of bright spells today.  The temperature high will be around 11c and the overnight low around 4c.

At the moment (06:30 hours) the temperature is only around 2c, therefore, it is possible that their could be some icy patches around if you travel early to work this morning.


Dry with some bright spells.
