Will it get colder?

Looking out of the window this morning today already looks like an autumnal day with full cloud cover and a slightly misty outlook.  When you step out, however, you will find it to be a little milder than it looks.

Our top temperature today will be around 9c and overnight the low will be around 5c.  Last night’s low was around 7c.  As I stated in yesterday’s report the mild evening was helped by the general cloud cover keeping in the residual heat of the earth.

We currently have a single high air pressure system sitting across our region and this will bring light breezes at an average speed of around 3-4mph.  The wind will be deriving from the WSW-SW.

Looking ahead the jet stream images are clearly showing that by Tuesday the jet stream will be sitting above the UK.  This will bring us some clear sky and winds from the N.  (See image below.  Temperatures are likely to dip below 0c for the first time this winter.  This cold spell is likely to last all week and possibly (subject to jet stream changes) until the 23 November 2013.  I must stress that this later date is very subjective as much can change to the jet stream position over the next few days.

If you want to get out and about today is a good day to choose.
