Forecast for today.

Once again we had a cold night when temperatures fell to 1.8c.  This was not as low as many expected but the cloud cover did last longer than we first thought yesterday.

Today will follow a very similar pattern to yesterday and we will see the best of the Bank Holiday weather.  Winds will remain light at around 5mph and will eventually move to come from a ESE direction.  This is a very similar situation to the last two years.

The day will be mostly dry with the risk of very isolated and localised showers.  These will be few a far between and many will not see any at all.  We will, however, see the clouds thicken as the day passes and this could bring the rain.  Our top temperature today will be around 10c and the low around 3c.

At the moment there is a low pressure system developing out the west of us.  This will push its way across the UK during the early hours and will reach our area by early tomorrow morning.  This, sadly, will bring rain for the majority of the day.

Today is definitely the best day of this holiday period so make the most of but take your cap just in case the odd rain shower catches up with you.


Mostly dry with cloud increasing as the day passes.
