Air pressure rising this morning.

The air pressure has risen slightly and this, along with the radar images, suggests that yesterday afternoon’s improved weather will continue today.  The chance of any rain today is less than 15%.

Overnight, due to the light cloud cover, we reached a minimum temperature of 6.5c at 05:36 hours but the clearer sky will mean that we will see some brighter spells today.  In mid afternoon we will reach a top temperature of around 14-15c and overnight the thermometer will reach a minimum of around 11c – a return to the mild overnight temperatures.

The wind will be much lighter than of late which is due to large parts of the UK being under the influence of a single air pressure band for much of the day.  The average wind speed during the daylight hours will be around 5mph.  The wind will be blowing from a SW-SE arc.

Overnight the picture will change and by tomorrow morning we will see a large band of rain moving across the country.  We can expect to see rain as we journey to work on Friday morning.  Some of the rain tomorrow come be moderate to heavy.  I will review this situation more tomorrow morning.
