Don’t forget your brolly.

The air pressure is falling slowly which generally means that we are set for some inclement weather and today will be no exception.  The day will bring some further rain showers, however, they will not be too heavy.

The interesting aspect about the morning is that the wind is deriving from the E-ESE which is nearly the direction (more E-NE) the wind blows when we are set for cold temperatures, however, as the day passes the wind will move clockwise towards the SW and this will increase the risk of rain as the warm and cold air mix.

This morning the radar images are showing plenty of light rain cloud in our area but this will generally just bring some isolated local showers and drizzle for the majority of us.  The risk of rain this morning is about 70%.  During the afternoon the risk of rain abates a little only for a larger band of rain to move into our area after 20:00 hours.  This system will remain with us until late evening.  The risk of rain tonight is about 85%.

It will be a mild day with a top temperature of around 8-9c and a minimum overnight low around 4c.  Last night’s minimum was 2.1c at 01:49 hours.

The wind will have an average speed today of 8mph this morning increasing to 12mph by this evening.
