After the storm

Yesterday’s low pressure system that introduced us to the ex-hurricane Gonzalo is now beyond our area and we are seeing a steady rise in the air pressure.  After yesterday’s 0-40 mph wind gust speeds today will all be a much calmer.

A word of warning, however, before you step outside without your coat is that it will be a relatively cool day with a top temperature only just into double figures (around 11c).  The overnight low will be around 7c.  (Similar to last night’s minimum temperature – 6.5c at 01:44 hours).

During the day we will see the odd break in the cloud which will allow some brighter spells to appear.  Our risk of any rain today is about 25%.  The highest period of rain risk will be during the late afternoon / early evening when a band of rain cloud that is currently sitting to the NW of the UK makes its move downwards.  The current images suggest that the rain cloud may just fall short of our area but we will be very close to the edge.

Today wind will be deriving generally from the SW-WSW and the average wins speed will be around 7mph.

Summary : A generally dry day but cool.
