Today sees us reach the Summer Solstice. This is the day when the daylight hours are at the maximum. Somehow I think the general cloud base will prevent us from seeing too much of the sun.
So far this morning we have already had a sprinkling of rain and this followed on from yesterday’s 6mm of rainfall. We are under threat (around 65-70%) of seeing some more rain today and even possibly thunder. The greatest risk exists from around noon to around early evening. It will not rain throughout this period, however that is when the greatest risk occurs. Overnight a system that is currently moving towards the UK across the Irish sea will reach our area. We should see more rainfall in the early hours.
Our top temperature today will be around 19c which is similar to yesterday’s high of 19.4c at approximately 16:30 hours. The mean temperature yesterday was 14.6c with a low of 12.4c (approximately 07:00 Hours).
The wind will be mild and will be blowing, initially from a generally northern direction before moving anti clockwise towards the W. This W wind will help bring the rain clouds from the Irish Sea to our area overnight. The average wind speed today will be 6mph during the day and 10mph overnight.
Cloudy with the threat of further rain.
