Forecast for today.
Yesterday’s rainfall was recorded at 2.2mm and overnight the minimum temperature fell to 0.6c. This combination will lead to some grass frost early this morning.
The jet stream is now beginning to loop below the UK and when this settles we should see some clearer but cooler periods as the northern climate will dominate.
The day will, however, fall into our familiar pattern. We will see some sunshine but the gentle NNE breeze will bring a chill to the air. Our top temperature today will be 11c but when the average 5mph breeze blows it will feel a degree or two cooler.
During the day but particularly in the afternoon and evening periods we will, again, see some isolated showers and whether you happen to fall under a heavier downpour is something that I am not able to tell at this moment in time. I think that all of the areas in our patch will, however, see rainfall of some level today.
Overnight temperatures will again fall to around 1c and so it is likely that we will have another ground frost in the morning. Hopefully all you gardeners have, by now, protected your young or tender plants.
Another April day of sunshine and showers. Getting slightly cooler but with less chance of rain on Saturday.
