The low air pressure system that was dominating the weather in the northern parts of the UK will be travelling into our area today. The barometer is already clearly showing that the air pressure is falling slowly and it will continue to do so.
Before we go too far I should mention the very mild overnight temperatures. The lowest temperature recorded by me overnight was a very mild 12.1c at 02:10 hours. Tonight’s overnight temperature will be more seasonal at around 6-7c.
The day will see some bright spells and a top temperature of around 17c. This will be lovely weather for tackling some outdoor jobs, particularly , this morning or very early afternoon. As the afternoon passes the cloud will increase and so will the risk of rain. The current radar images show that rain will reach our area from late afternoon and through the early part of the evening. There is a 75% chance of rain in our area today.
The wind will start off deriving from the SSW and this will bring with it some warm air. The average wind speed during the daylight hours will be around 8-10mph. After dark the wind will begin a clockwise journey and the wind will end deriving from the NW. This direction air to our area.
Summary : Bright and mild during the day but the risk of rain increasing late afternoon and through the early evening.
