Summer is drawing to a close and, for this weekend at least, there does not appear to be any signs of a last final flurry of baking hot days. Whilst we are under the influence of a high pressure system the jet stream is running generally across the UK from W to E and this will bring more periods of cloudy but mild weather.
For today cloud, bright spells and maybe the odd spell of drizzle is the order of the day. It will, however, be mild as the wind will be blowing from the SW. During the afternoon the cloud, on the current radar images, appears to fragment significantly and if this situation transpires we could see a sustained bright spell. Good news for all of the Saturday cricketers!
Our top temperature today will be 19-20c and overnight the minimum will be a warm 13c. (Last night at midnight the low as 12.3c).
The wind will have an average speed of around 7mph and, as previously stated will be blowing from the SW, however, it will possibly shift towards the WSW as the day passes.
Cloud, fragmenting at times to allow some brighter spells. Some drizzle is possible when the cloud clover is dense.
