We start the day with a general ground frost and temperatures below freezing point (-1.5c at 06:20 hours). To offset these two conditions the sun is shining brightly and there is very little breeze to add any wind chill. Care should be taken on untreated roads and paths as they could be icy.
We will see very little cloud cover this morning and this will help lift our top temperature today up to around 9c. As the day passes into the afternoon we will see a steady increase in cloud cover and wind speed. By early evening we can expect to see 100% cloud cover. This cloud cover will, at least, help maintain our air temperature above freezing overnight. The minimum temperature is likely to be around 3-4c.
Along with the increase in cloud will also see an increase in the wind speed. This wind speed increase will start earlier in the day than the cloud cover. By mid afternoon we can expect to be feeling a S-SE breeze blowing at approximately 12-15mph. Gusts speeds will be around 10mph faster.
Late evening / overnight some rain cloud will pass through our area and this is most likely to deposit so light rain in our area.
A dry, bright but cold start. Turning breezy and cloudy during the afternoon.
