After a cool night, when temperatures reached a minimum of around 2c in our area, it will be a chilly journey in to work if you are travelling by foot or bike.
First thing this morning and until around mid afternoon the sky will be either clear or have only fragmented cloud cover. This will allow for some autumn sun to shine down on us and, therefore, keeping away the rain. As we reach the mid-point of the afternoon the cloud cover will increase and by evening we will have complete cloud cover. Our top temperature today will be around 7c and the overnight low around 5c.
We are currently sitting bellow a simple air pressure system but as the day develops a more complex system with multiple points of pressure will push into our area from the N. This means that wind speeds will increase as the day passes. This morning we can expect wind speeds to average around 5-6mph but as the evening reaches us the average wind speed will be around 12mph with gusts of around 30mph. The wind will be from the SW this morning and moving towards the WNW as the day passes (and the wind speeds increase).
Despite the increasing cloud the risk of any rain in our area is restricted to the later hours of the day and currently the radar images do not show the rain band reaching us.
A bright day but getting breezy later.
