The sunrise this morning is at 06:36 hours and on looking out of the window there is far more of a general cloud cover than we have seen for a few days. On first impressions it looks a dismal day – but don’t despair too much.
It will be more of a cloudy day than we have recently experienced but the cloud will dissipate from time to time to allow for some brighter spells to break through. High air pressure is also maintained above our region and, despite the cloud, the risk of rain is less than 7%. Our high air pressure will be formed by two lines of pressure and it is the proximity of these two lines that will introduce a light breeze to the day.
Our top temperature will be around 19-20c (top temperature yesterday in the UK was in Bala at 23c) and overnight our low will be around 9c. Last night’s minimum in Hammerwich was 8.7c at 03:15 hours.
The wind today will be deriving from a NE-SE arc and the average wind speed will be around 4mph.
Looking ahead the current system of high pressure still looks as if it will move away around Tuesday ad this will bring more unsettled weather to many parts of the UK.
Summary. More cloud than of late but reaming mild.
