Weather forecast 22 July 2012.
If you look out of your window first thing this morning you will see plenty of cloud in the sky but do not despair because this does not mean another Sunday of rain – the sun is on its way. There are a few rain carrying clouds that will pass over area up to around 10:00 hours but the likelihood of any rainfall is only around a 1 in 5 chance.
The cloud will clear during the morning to leave us with some brighter spells. This will help lift our top temperature up to around 21-22c. Our astronomers should also find that we are left with a clearer night for observations. The clear night will, however, mean that the temperature will fall to a minimum of 12c.
The isobars are relatively tightly packed and this indicates that we feel something of a breeze today. The average wind speed will be around 8mph and gusts will be approximately double that figure. The wind will be blowing from the warm SSW-S.
Looking ahead the weather, in our area, looks fine for the rest of the week and will become changeable towards next weekend. Other parts of the UK will not be as fortunate as us and they will see some rain.
Finally, the pollen count across our area is today classed as “High”.
Becoming brighter as the day passes and with some sunshine too.
