In the middle

Yesterday, in our area, we avoided the extreme weather conditions that some areas received in the south east of England and today we will sit (almost) in the middle of the UK’s temperature extremes.  Parts of Scotland will see a maximum of around 13c whilst the Sussex coast will see a top temperature of around 26c.    In our area our top temperature will reach around 21-22c.  Our overnight minimum temperature will be around 12c.

The pressure charts are showing that over the next 48 hours a low pressure system will be entering our area but, for today, we will see some lengthy bright periods. Parts of this afternoon and evening will see an increase in the cloud cover although it will remain dry.  The risk of rain today is around 7%.

The wind will be deriving from the NW with an average speed of around 5-6mph.

Looking ahead a little.  We are likely to see some light showers as we move towards the weekend.  Saturday afternoon /evening currently appears to be the time of the heaviest rainfall.  This position, however, can quickly change as we move through the week.  It looks as we will be watering the hanging baskets for a few more days yet!

Summary.  A dry day but a little cooler than of late.
