If you were up and about at 06:30 hours this morning then the 5c temperature was probably the best that the thermometer was going to show us today. For the next 48 hours it is going to feel a bit chilly.
The wind is today deriving from the E-ENE which, is the direction that brought us our cold spell and snow last year. Now whilst we will not see any snow fall today it will feel rather cold. With the wind blowing at an average speed of around 10mph this afternoon the wind chill temperature will be around 1c. The top thermometer temperature this afternoon will be around 4c. Overnight the thermometer temperature will reduce in value to around 0-1c.
To add to the wintry “feel” to the day we will also see some light showers popping up from time. There is a 90% chance of rain today with the biggest of a shower (but not only risk) being during the early to mid afternoon period (around 12:00 hours to 16:00 hours).
A cool day with the odd spell of light rain.
