The jet stream position has moved into an area that could see a slight change in our weather conditions over the next few days. Whilst the “stream” is still predominantly above Scotland it quickly moves southwards down the eastern coast of the UK. This situation will bring cool air into the system, increase the cloud level and increase the risk of some precipitation. Hay fever suffers are, I am sure, delighted to hear that we may see some rain. The barometer is also showing a slow fall in air pressure which helps support the theory.
The day will, however, start off brightly and mild. As the day passes through the afternoon we are likely to see the cloud cover increase to between 70-100%. The largest risk of any precipitation in our area is in the period between late afternoon and early/mid evening. The further you head east the more likely it is you will see rain. In our area we are on the edge of the system and our risk of rain is around 60%.
Our top temperature today will be around 20-21c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 11c.
The wind will start the day deriving from the NW and end the day from the NE-ENE. The average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Summary. A mild start to the day. Cloud increasing during the day bringing the risk of some showers.
