Exactly a year ago our day started, as it does today, with a misty morning. The first difference, however, with today’s weather is that the air temperature is 3c lower at the same point of the day than last year.
The second difference is that a year ago we were heading into a period of high air pressure whilst today we will see the air pressure reduce as the day passes. This reduction will bring increased wind speeds during the afternoon and possibly some rain either last thing tonight and / or overnight.
The morning mist will burn away as the day warms up and we will see some brighter spells and, in particular, during mid morning. The cloud cover will increase again during the afternoon although it will remain dry. Our top temperature today will be around 19c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be 14c. Last night’s minimum temperature was 8.6c at 04:22 hours.
The wind will be light and deriving from the NE-ENE this morning. As the day passes the wind speed will increase to an average of around 8mph. The wind in the afternoon will be deriving from the ESE.
Summary. A misty start improving as the day passes. Rain possible overnight.
