Weather forecast 24 July 2012.
I am pleased to be able to report that today will, once again, will be filled with clear skies and plenty of sunshine. Not great if you are stuck in an office or factory but great if you are on holiday.
Our top temperature today will be around 25c. At the time of observation our temperature was 15.7c which is already higher than the maximum we attained on some of the days last week! Overnight the temperature “low” tonight will reach around 14c.
The winds will also remain light and from the SW. These light winds will “blow” at an average speed of around 4-5mph.
Throughout the day we will see very little, if any, cloud. This means that our astronomers will, once again, get another good night for observations. This is in stark contrast to areas not too far north of us who will see plenty of cloud cover.
I have looked further into the change of weather at the end of the week and the jet stream models clearly show a change of position that will bring low pressure (caused by loops in the jet stream), cloud and probably rain.
To see the jet stream forecast in animated form follow this link. (Jet stream). Note how loops are formed to the west of the UK. These will bring low pressure and less favourable weather.
The pollen count for today is again ranked as high.
Plenty of blue sky and sunshine today – very warm.
