Low pressure continues to dominate across the UK and this will bring some heavy rain to parts of the UK. Fortunately we will not feel the brunt of the weather today. Tomorrow, however, may be different.
During the night another 3mm of rain fell in Hammerwich and the radar images are showing that there are plenty of rain carrying clouds heading our way during the morning. The majority of these are on carrying “light loads” and many of them will simply blow past but if you are going out it would be best to be prepared for the localised odd shower. This afternoon there is a more general band of rain heading towards our area and we should expect a 90% chance of rain sometime between 14:00 and 16:00 hours.
Once again the wind will be bringing warmer air with it and we will also see the odd brighter spell. It is well worth risking the odd shower to get out for a walk or cycle.
Our top temperature today will be around 15c and overnight the low will be around 11c – very mild for this time of year. The wind will be blowing from a SSE – SW direction and the average speed will be around 10mph.
Overnight a large system of rain will be moving towards our area and by early morning and through the rush hour we can expect some persistent and, at times, heavy rain.
Some bright spells, mild but the risk of rain too.
