As we discussed yesterday the UK is sitting under a complex low pressure system that is slowly moving down the towards the S as the day passes. This complex system will create a stronger breeze than we encountered yesterday.
The breeze will have an average speed of around 8mph but we will see gusts of around 20-25 mph during the day. The wind will derive for most of the day from the SSW-SSW.
In the main it will be a cloudy day although we may see the occasional brighter spell. The clouds will bring a 30% risk of rain light rain this morning around 10:00 hours. The radar images are showing some light rain clouds heading our way although they are most likely to blow by. Later this afternoon a more significant band of rain will move across the country and the risk of rain late afternoon / early evening is around 80%.
It will be a cool day and the wind will make it feel even cooler. The top thermometer temperature will be around 7c but this will feel more like 3-4c in the breeze. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 3c.
Summary : A breezy day with an increasing risk of rain during the afternoon.
