As I said in yesterday’s post the weather picture, due to jet stream moving from the north to the current position of running across the UK, is now becoming more seasonal. To confirm this the air pressure is falling albeit slowly and we can expect to see the return of the rain this week.
Today will bring us around a 40% chance of seeing some localised rain showers. If you travel towards and through Derby today some areas will have already received around 1mm (by 06:15 hours), however, our area is on the outer edge of the current system. Our largest risk of rain will be between around 10:30 hours until 15:00 hours.
It will be a generally cloudy day with just the odd brighter spell. These brighter spells will help lift the top temperature up to around 11c. Overnight the cloud will help maintain us with a mild night. The minimum temperature will be around 5c.
The wind will start off the day from the SW and will end the day deriving from the W-WNW. The wind speed will increase slight as the day passes due to a low pressure system to the north of us. The average wind speed this morning will be around 6mph increasing to around 12mph by mid-afternoon. Gust speeds will be around 30mph.
A generally overcast day with the risk of some isolated showers during the middle hours.
