Meteor weather watch

Similarly to yesterday the jet stream is maintaining a position that is running across the UK.  The jet stream today is , however, pushing colder air from the NW into the country and this will bring some rain to the north of the UK and the risk 0f showers in other parts such as our area.

We will see some cloud today but this will dissipate to bring some bright spells to our area.  During the afternoon the chance of  some sunny rain showers increases.  Our top temperature today will be around 19c and overnight the low will fall to around 11c.

As the evening progresses the cloud cover will thin and this could be sufficient to see the Perseids meteor shower later this evening.

The chances of some disruption to the cricket test match up in the NE are high and I would expect the players to be off a the field of play at least once due to rain.
