Forecast for today.

Our overnight temperature fell to a low of 1.6c at 05:59 hours this morning.  This was due to a lack of cloud overnight.  Whilst we do have a thin covering of cloud this morning this is not preventing the sun shining through.

This will be the general pattern for the day although the cloud will thicken from time to time.  When this happens we will have a chance of a localised shower, however, for the majority the day will remain dry.

A feature of the day will be the wind which will be blowing from a generall northerly direction to start off the day.  The wind direction will then move towards the ENE.  Both of these wind directions will bring a cool chill to the air. The average wind speed will be around 6mph this will make the actual temperature feel a degree lower than the thermometer is telling us.

Our top temperature will be around 9c during the day but we can expect the overnight low to fall to 0-1c.  The clear overnight sky will allow for some good observations for our astronomers during the small hours.  Gardeners will need to ensure that young and tender plants are protected.


Bright spells with the slight risk of isolated showers.  Cold overnight.
