If you were planning to spend the day outside in the garden then you will need to have your waterproofs ready and your hat strapped tight because we will be seeing the odd shower and there will be a steady cool breeze.
The radar images are showing plenty of light rain clouds moving towards our area this morning. Many of these clouds will blow by but it will still leave us with a high (80%+) of seeing some rain before noon. This afternoon / evening the risk raises to nearer 90% and some of these showers could be moderate to heavy (4-5mm).
With the risk of rain there is clearly plenty of cloud around today and this will prevent us seeing too many bright spells. The top temperature today will be around 13c and overnight the low will reach around 8c (last night’s low was 9.8c at 00:51 hours).
The wind will be blowing from the NE-NNE today and this will be bringing with it a bit of a wind chill factor. With a breeze of around 6mph the temperature will “feel” at least a degree less than the thermometer is telling us. The average wind speed this morning will be around 7-8 mph although it will reduce to around 5mph during the afternoon.
Plenty of cloud with a high risk of rain.
