Air pressure going up!

After the rain last night / early this morning we still have a few rain clouds that are due to pass through our area this morning. These, however, appear quite small on the radar images and may either simply blow by or be short-lived.  The chances of any further rain this morning is around 45%. The most likely period of any rain would be around 09:00 hours.

The good news is that, at the time of observation, the air pressure is rising rapidly and this would indicate that some more settled weather is heading our way.  A look at the radar images confirms that for the later part of the morning and throughout the afternoon the risk of rain is low and the sky will clear from time to time to allow for some brighter spells.

Our top temperature today will be around 6-7c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 3c.  This time last year our top temperature was 12c and the overnight low was around 7c.

The wind will again be deriving from the WSW-SW and the average speed today will be around 5mph.  This will reduce the feel of the air temperature by around 0.5-1c.
