Today starts off a bit “damp and drizzly” first thing this morning although it is mild (13c at 06:30 hours). This “dampness” in the air is confirmed by the high relative humidity percentage which stands, at the time of observations, at 88%.
The jet stream and isobar charts are showing that a low pressure system that is predominantly sitting over Scotland and the North of England will bring some showers to our area today. Any showers will be light and the highest period of risk is between 12:00 hours and 15:00 hours. The risk of rain at this point is around 60%.
The day will not warm up much further from the 06:30 hours reading. We can expect a top temperature of around 14-15c. Overnight there will be some fragmentation in the cloud as higher pressure begins to push its way back into our area. This will, however, mean that the overnight temperature will be below double figures at around 7c.
The low pressure system will be creating a low level of breeze for the majority of the day. The average wind speed will be around 8mph with gusts reaching around 15mph. The wind will derive predominantly from the SW.
The return of some high air pressure overnight means that Saturday and Sunday will be pleasant days, with some brighter spells and a very low risk of rain.
