A low air pressure system from the west will slowly replace the current high air pressure system that is bringing us the warm dry weather. In addition the jet stream, will be positioning itself below the UK. This will allow the northern atmosphere to dominate.
All of this means that we see a break up of the long dry spell over the next few days.
Today, there will be a more cloudy than recent although it is most likely to remain dry throughout. The radar images are showing a very small rain carrying cloud system will reach our area around 09:00 hours, however, I believe that this system will simply blow by. The chance of rain today is around 15%. The cloud will bring the top temperature down slightly, however, we can still expect the high to be around 19c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 11c.
The wind will be deriving from the NE-E direction and the average wind speed will be around 5mph.
For today the pollen count will remain high. The good news on the pollen front is that we can expect some periods of rain tomorrow and this should help reduce the pollen count.
Summary. More cloudy than of late but remaining dry.
