After yesterday’s early morning rain it is a pleasure to see the sun breaking through some thin cloud this morning. For the early part of the morning this will remain the picture.
As the day passes the cloud will begin to thicken from the south-west and this will eventually bring the threat of rain. There is a risk of rain (40%) in our area any time from around 14:00 hours, however, the largest risk (75%) will be around 19:00 hours onwards.
Our top temperature today will be around 13c and the low overnight will be around 7c.
The wind will be deriving predominantly from the south. The average wind speed will be around 7mph.
For all you gardeners I have been looking carefully at the jet stream images and the potential weather for the weekend. Sadly, it currently looks as if Saturday could be a bit damp although Sunday does look a little better. If you get the chance my advice is to cut your lawn either this morning or tomorrow afternoon as there may not be too much opportunity over the weekend (the grass may be too wet to cut on Sunday after Saturday’s rain).
A bright start. Cloud increasing and eventually bringing rain.
