A change in the air.

The air pressure over our area is reducing rapidly and at the time of these observations (06:37 hours) very light drizzle is falling.

As the day continues we can expect further periods of light rain in our area but particularly when a more developed rain systems moves through our patch between noon and the middle of the afternoon. (It is unlikely to rain throughout this period).

As the day passes the wind direction and strength will change.  This morning a very gentle breeze from the SW will be blowing at around 2mph but by mid afternoon the wind direction will have moved towards the WNW-NW and the average wind strength will be around 10mph.

It will be a generally cloudy during the daylight hours and the top temperature will be 8-9c.  Overnight the clouds will thin a little and this will allow the overnight low to reach around 1-2c.  This sees the beginning of a cold spell over the next few days that may even see the odd wintry flurry and icy patch.

It’s time to find your big coat, hat, gloves and scraper and de-icer!


Some light rain during the day getting colder later.
