What’s the jet stream position?

The jet stream continues to ride in the norther parts of the UK.  This will bring rain to the Scotland and Norther England but, in our area, we will have another generally dry day with only a 10% chance of rain.

A noticeable feature of the weather this morning is the SW breeze which is averaging around 5mph but with gusts of 10-12mph.  The breeze, however, is noticeably warm due the derivation.  As the day passes we can expect the wind speed to reduce slightly and the derivation to move clockwise towards the WNW .

It will be a partly cloudy day with the cloud cover varying from 20% to 90%.  This means we will still see some bright and sunny spells with the top temperature reaching around 18-19c.  Today’s temperature is about 4c warmer than what we would expect for this time of year.  Looking at my historical data back to 26/9/20012 the top temperature was 14c and we received 6mm of rain during the day.

Looking ahead the jet stream models show the “stream” remains above our area until Tuesday.  On Wednesday there is some movement southwards but we need to get nearer the day before we can accurately predict what this will do for the weather in our area.  The most likely scenario will be an increase in cloud cover.

Summary.  Bright and slightly breezy to start.  Variable amounts of cloud as the day passes.
