After last evening’s rainfall when 6mm fell after 18:00 hours and 10mm in total during the day we are set to see even more rain today.
This morning will start off cloudy, however the likelihood is that apart from the odd spell of drizzle it will remain dry. If you are going out shopping, or walk or cycle then the morning is your best bet.
This afternoon two things will happen. Firstly, the air pressure charts are showing a tightening of the isobars which means that the average wind speed will increase from around 6mph this morning to around 15mph this afternoon and evening. We may also see gust speeds of up to 25-30mph. The wind will be blowing from the SW this morning eventually settling from the WNW by the evening. As the day passes and the direction moves clockwise the air will have a distinct chill to it.
Secondly a band of rain cloud is moving across our area and will reach us by early afternoon (around 14:00 hours). This will bring an 80% chance of rain. We should expect about another 2-3mm.
Out top temperature today will be around 8c but with the wind chill this will feel more like 3c this afternoon. Overnight the low will be around 2-3c.
Cloudy day with a high risk of rain later. Becoming breezy.
