GMT began early this morning and will remain with us until the 29 march 2015. GMT really is the final reminder that we are now heading into the “darker” months.
Today, however, will be a generally mild day with a general cloud covering for much of the day. There may be one or two opportunities for the sun to break through but the sky will be (as I previously stated) for the majority of the day cloudy. despite the cloud there is less than a 15% chance of rain in our area today.
Our top temperature by mid afternoon will be around 14c. This is in stark contrast to 2012 when my records show that the maximum daytime temperature was only 7c. (The temperature at the time of observation in 2012 (which was a similar time to today) was -0.3c whilst today we were in double figures. Overnight our minimum temperature will be around 10c.
The wind today will be deriving from the SSW and the average speed will be around 9-10mph. Gusts speeds could reach around 25mph. Other than bringing down more leaves wind speeds at this level will not create any real damage.
