Warmest night since July 2014.

A low air pressure system is siting across the UK but the jet stream is bringing warm air from the south-west (see jet stream image below) . Last night the lowest air temperature was 15.3c at midnight.  That was the warmest night since our very warm spell in the middle of July.

Today we will see plenty of cloud cover and only the occasional bright spell. Th good news is, however, is that there will not be too much in the way of rain.  There is a 35% chance of some showers this afternoon but overall it will a generally dry but breezy day.  Our top temperature today will be around 18c (20c on the SE coast) and overnight it will only be a little cooler than last night with a low of around 13c.

The wind will be deriving from the S-SW and will be a little breezy at time.  The average wind speed will be around 8mph but some gusts could reach around 22mph.

Summary. Mostly dry and warm during the day.  Rain moving in later in the evening.
