High air pressure systems continue to maintain in place over our area and, in fact, much of the UK. This is caused by the jet stream riding above the UK and allowing the more southern climate to dominate. The only downside of the jet stream’s current path is that it is bringing a cool breeze from the NE. At the end of the day this is a small price to pay for the brilliant sunshine we will enjoy.
Our top temperature will reach around 19c today and overnight the low will reach a minimum of around 9c (last night’s minimum temperature was 6.4c at 04:52 hours).
There will be some fragmented cloud from time to time but in general we will see plenty of uninterrupted sunshine. It should also be another good night for our astronomers to make some observations.
The wind, as previously stated will be blowing from the NE and this will be at an average speed of around 6-7mph. One thing we need to be aware of today is sun burn. Remember if you are outside for long periods today to put on a bit of sun cream.
Generally bright and sunny.
