The jet stream is currently still riding above the UK and this is helping bring some high pressure to our region. Today will see a slight increase in the air pressure by a couple of points or so. The chance of any rain will, therefore, remain low at around 4%.
Looking around the region on the weather webcams shows that the Long Mynd is misty whilst all other areas in and around a 30 miles radius of us are generally cloudy.
The radar images are showing that our area is covered with low cloud and that cloud is likely to be with us for much of the day. There will, however, be some fragmentation in the cloud bed this afternoon and this will allow us to see some brighter spells.
Our top temperature today will be around 20c and overnight the minimum temperature will be (thanks to the cloud cover) a very mild 10c. The warmest place in the UK yesterday was Northolt in London at 24c.
The wind will, once again, be light and deriving from the EN-ENE. The average wind speed will be around 5mph.
looking ahead over the next few days sees the jet stream move southwards from Tuesday onward. This will see a change in the current weather pattern and more inclement weather is likely in the middle and later parts of next week.
