Hello Sunshine!

When first looking outside today I was greeted by some bright sunshine and a feeling of optimism.

My weather instruments confirm to me that the air pressure is currently rising slowly and the charts confirm that a high pressure systems is trying to move into the UK.  All this tells us that today should be a much better day weather wise and I expect the remainder of the day to remain dry.

The radar imagery and GFS models show that we will see some bright spells today through thin or fragmented cloud.  This will help lift the top temperature by mid afternoon to around 14c.  Overnight, particularly during the first part of the night, the sky will remain clear which should be good news for our astronomers. 

By early morning tomorrow the clouds will begin to increase and this will help maintain an overnight minimum temperature of around 8c.

The wind today will be from the W to WSW and will have an average speed of around 8mph.  Gusts will be around 20mph.

Regular readers will  know that I base my weather forecasts upon my own reading and the Jet Stream models.  This is why my forecasts are sometimes at odds with other mainstream forecasters.  I stick to what evidence I have and not what others may be saying.  The evidence today is currently showing the Jet Stream having a “southern loop” out the west of the UK.  “Loops” inevitably form low pressures systems and this one looks as if it will bring us more unsettled weather over the next few days. In this instance,  I think, all forecasters are in agreement.

Today’s summary.
