The radar images are clearly showing a very thin band of rain cloud moving up the UK. This system is heading from the Bristol channel area via Worcester and up into our patch. We can expect the threat of light rain until at least lunchtime today. The risk of rain will be around 70% but we should not expect to see a repeat of the 16mm of rain that fell in total yesterday. (We are more likely to see a maximum of around 1-2mm).
During the afternoon we will see some brighter spells break through the cloud cover and this interlude will help lift our top temperature up to 15c. The risk of rain during the afternoon is 20-30%.
Tonight the clouds will thin further and we should see a partly clear spell. This will allow the temperature to reach a minimum of around 8-9c.
The wind will start off the morning deriving from the SSE but we can expect it to shift slightly clockwise to spend most of the day deriving from the S. The average wind speed today will be around 7mph.
Showers this morning leading to brighter spell this afternoon.
