The low air pressure system that delivered the breezy weather to us yesterday is slowly moving towards the NE and we are seeing the air pressure rise slightly. The isobar charts are also showing that the lines of air pressure are not quite so closely spaced so it will be a slightly less breezy day today than yesterday.
We have already had around 1mm of rain fall this morning but the radar images are suggesting that a thin belt of rain will be working down from the NW and it will just skirt our area. The further W you are in our area the greater risk you have of seeing further rain up to 09:00 hours. The general risk of further rain in our area today is around 45%. The period of heightened risk is between 11:00 hours and 14:00 hours.
We will see variable amounts of cloud with the cover ranging from 5% to 60% during the day. This will allow for some bright spells to develop from time to time.
Our top temperature today will be around 18c and overnight the low will be around 9-10c.
The wind will be deriving from the SW-WSW first thing this morning but as the day passes we will see this direction move clockwise to end the day deriving from the WNW. The average wind speed today will be around 8mph with gusts of around 15mph.
Summary. A bright day at times with the risk of occasional showers.
