Forecast for today.
April is now living up to its reputation by bringing some rain showers. Today will continue this theme.
After a cold start, with temperatures falling as low as 2.4c at 05:20 hours, we will see some bright spells through fragmented cloud. These brighter spells will help lift the daytime temperature up to around 10c.
In a similar pattern to yesterday, however, the cloud will thicken from time to time to bring localised rain showers. Although these showers are likely from mid morning onwards the current GFS images show them to be more prevalent around lunchtime and during the afternoon.
Overnight the sky will once again clear allowing temperatures to fall to a minimum of 1c. Gardeners will again need to protect their young and tender plants and astronomers should get a better view of the night’s sky.
The wind will be lighter than yesterday with an average speed of around 5mph. The wind direction will start off from the SW but move towards the NW as the day passes. When we have the periods of rain showers the wind speed is likely to increase by a few miles per hour.
April sunshine and showers.
