There is some better weather news for me to bring today. The air pressure is rising steadily and the air pressure maps show that this is a trend that will continue over the weekend at least. High air pressure brings less chance of rain – hurrah!
To temper my good news it is an improving picture over the next couple of days and, therefore, there is a 30% risk of some light showers / drizzle this morning. As the day passes, however, the risk of rain reduces accordingly. We should end the day with a rain risk of about 10%.
Whilst it will be dry we will still see plenty of cloud cover today. This will mean that our top temperature will only be around 14-15c. Overnight the clouds will help keep the minimum temperature around double figures (around 10c).
The wind will be deriving from the NE-ENE today with the average speed being around 5mph.
The GFS ensemble model is showing a slight increase in average air temperature in the second week of June, however, this is little more than we would expect for the time of year. There is predicted to be a “dip” in air pressure between the 3 and 7 of June. We should, therefore, expect to see some more unsettled weather during this period.
A cloudy day but with only a low risk of rain.
