Forecast for today.
For the sixth day running high pressure dominates our area and this will once again bring us some nice stable weather.
First of all though we will have to contend with some early morning mist and fog this morning. In places this fog could be quite dense. The dew point today (in simple terms the air temperature at which water vapour forms droplets) is within 0.5c of the current actual temperature. Couple this with little or no breeze and we get some fog /mist.
Once the mist clears we will be left with a generally fine day with plenty of bright spells and clear sky. There will be some occasional cloud around but the overall picture will be bright. A great day for getting out and about.
Our top temperature today will reach around 17c and overnight, under a perfect sky for astronomy, the temperature will fall to 5c.
Wind will remain light and from the E to SE.
Turning bright after early morning mist and fog.
