Yesterday the rainfall count broke the 100mm (4inches) mark for the month but today will not add greatly, if at all, to the tally. Tomorrow, however, is a different story.
The red sky this morning tells us that there is some moisture in the air out to the W but the radar images show that the larger bands of rain are to the N of our area. There is a small cluster of rain cloud that will pass through our area early to mid morning but I expect that, for many, this will simply blow by. The chance of us seeing any rain today is around 35%.
We will see some brighter spells, through thin or fragmented cloud but this will not help the temperature climb too high. The top temperature we can expect will be around 10c. Overnight the clouds will fragment allowing the residual heat to dissipate. The minimum temperature will be around a cool 4-5c.
The wind will be deriving from the WSW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph. Some gusts during the day could reach around 20mph.
A more gentle brighter today.
