After last night’s light rain (0.6mm) today has once again started off bright although there is a steady breeze also blowing from the NW-WNW. Our top temperature will be lower than we have experienced over the last few days although it will still be very pleasantly warm.
Our top temperature today will be around 22-23c which is some 5c lower than we have been experiencing over the last week. The top temperature, which usually peaks around 16:00 – 16:30 hours, last week were as follows:
- 20th – 25.8c
- 21st – 26c
- 22nd – 26.7c
- 23rd – 27c
- 24th – 27.9c
- 25th – 28c
- 26th – 28.8c
Overnight (tonight) the minimum temperature will still be high at around 13c.
The redeeming feature of today will be the breeze from the NW-WNW which will be blowing at an average speed of around 7mph with gust speeds of up to 20mph.
There will be plenty of sunny spells and only a 15% chance of rain today so it will be a great for getting outside and doing some jobs in the garden. During the late afternoon / early evening will some increase in the cloud cover and this will coincide with a the wind being predominantly from the WNW. We can still expect 10 hours of sunshine today.
Summary. A bright, breezy and warm day with some cloud cover later.
