A day for a walk or ride out.

The jet stream is currently forming a nice “loop” around the top of the UK.  This is allowing the southern climate to dominate with a high pressure system.

All of this means that we will see periods of clear or fragmented sky as the day passes.  As we are in the winter months, however, this also means cold start and ends to each day.  As the earth warms up during the mid morning to lunchtime there is also the risk of some mist forming in some places. The relative humidity is already high and dew point is near to the actual temperature.  These are good indicators of some mist. This mist will not detract too much as it will, however, remain a dry day.

Overall it will be a pleasant day with some bright spells.  Our top temperature will reach around 8c and the minimum overnight will hover somewhere either side of freezing point.

With a single high pressure system keeping the low pressure systems at bay to west of us we will not see much in the way of a breeze.  Any wind will be light and blowing from the SW.  The average wind speed will be around 2-3mph.


Dry with brighter spells.
