Forecast for today.
The high pressure system is now getting totally pushed out of our area and a low pressure system is moving in from the north. The is a complex system with closely packed isobars and this means a continuation of the steady breeze for the next few hours.
Light rain fell during the early hours and we can expect to see another one or two odd isolated localised showers during the day. The rain, however, is very patchy now in our area with the majority of the early rainfall now to the south of us.
During the day the cloud will fragment a little and this will allow some brighter spells. These brighter spells will help to lift the daytime maximum temperature up to 13-14c. When the clouds do thicken the risk of rain returns – particularly during the late afternoon / early evening.
Overnight the cloud will again thicken and this will keep the overnight low around 4-5c. During the early hours we can, once again, expect some rainfall.
As I said at the top of this article the breeze, like yesterday, will be prominent. We can expect average speeds of around 10mph and gusts around 30mph. Initially the wind direction will be from the SW eventually moving towards the W.
After early rain some brighter spells. Remaining breezy.
