Today, once again, started off with a little light mist although this will soon burn away. Despite the recent good spell of weather there are some real signs, particularly, with the leaf fall, that Autumn is not too far away.
Today, however, will continue the good weather theme. The early mist will soon burn away and we will be left with periods of clear sky and sunshine. Our top temperature will be around 20c and overnight the low will reach around 8c. The island of Jersey recorded the warmest temperature yesterday with a top of 24c.
The low pressure system I spoke about yesterday is still being held out to the SW of the UK at the moment and it will remain so for another few days yet as a high pressure system sits firmly above the UK.
The wind today will be deriving from an arc between the NE and the SE today but the wind will be light. The average wind speed will be around 4mph.
A quick look around the webcams in the Midlands shows that the same weather picture is being repeated throughout the region.
Summary. A slightly misty start turning bright and mild.
