Forecast for today.

The jet stream is now running down from the north on the western side of Ireland and then looping back up across the UK (See image)  This is creating a milder weather pattern for us today but will bring some changes tomorrow.

Despite the odd route taken by the jet stream we are today really receiving our mild west to east weather pattern that brings cloud, possibly the odd isolated shower late afternoon and  mild temperatures. 

Our top temperature will be around 10c and the wind direction will be from a chilly NE.  This will make the air feel a degree cooler than the thermometer is telling us.  Overnight the temperature will fall as low as 4c.  Gardeners beware.

We will also see a steady 10mph breeze with gusts of up to 30mph during the daylight hours.

As the day passes the jet stream loop causes a low pressure system to develop to the south and this will push across the UK tomorrow.  We will then see a stiff breeze and plenty of rainfall.  Today is the best day to get outside (but take your cap just in case of the odd local shower).


A mostly  dry day but with plenty of cloud.  Breeze increasing as the day passes.
