Good time to travel

The air pressure is currently reducing and the charts clearly show a low pressure system is well developed out to the W of the UK.  This means that we are set for some further unsettled weather.

Today sees the risk of some rain showers this morning during drive time and then again in the later afternoon and into the evening.  The risk of  rain during these two periods is around 80%.  During the remainder of the day the rain risk is only around 35-40%.

Our top temperature today will be around 15c and this will be helped by some fragmentation in the cloud bed that will allow for some brighter spells this afternoon. During the night the cloud cover will be dense and this will help maintain a mild overnight temperature.  The overnight low will be around 10c.

The wind will be light for much of the day and deriving from a SW-SE arc.  The average wind speed will be around 5mph.

If you have to travel around the UK you are unlikely to see any new disruption today or tomorrow due to the weather.

Summary. Some showers during the morning.  Brighter spells before returning to showers later.
