It is a misty star to the Bank Holiday and the relative humidity is around a very humid 90% at 08:15 hours. The temperature, however, is already near to double figures at 9.8c.
The day will continue to be a mild day with the top temperature of the day reaching 15c. Overnight it will remain mild with the minimum temperature only being 7-8c. (last night’s minimum temperature was 8.7c at 01:27 hours).
We will see some brighter spells during the day but, from around noon onwards, we do have the risk of some isolated showers. Some of the showers also run the risk of being thundery. Yesterday saw the first significant rain we have received for a couple of weeks. (We can expect to see further showers during the remainder of the week).
The wind today will be deriving from a NNW-NE arc with the average wind speed being around 5mph.
Today will certainly not be an ideal “ice cream in the park” kind of day but it should not stop any of us getting out and about. Just remember to take your brolly!
A cloudy and humid start. Getting brighter but with the risk of showers too.
