Complex system.

This morning sees the air pressure rising rapidly and this will bring with it a bright and dry spell.  The top temperature today will be around 8c.  This will, however, be tempered a little by the steady W-WSW breeze.  There is only a low risk of rain today and any risk will be later in the day (around 20% risk).

As the day passes int to the afternoon the cloud cover will increase as a low air pressure begins to push the high air pressure further south.  This low pressure system will eventually bring rain to our area from the W during tomorrow.  The extra cloud cover tonight will, however, mean that we the minimum temperature overnight will only be around 5-6c.

The wind will remain breezy today but it will not be as blustery as yesterday.  The average wind speed will be around  8mph.   Gusts will be around 25mph.

Looking ahead at the air pressure charts for next week show that a complex system of low pressure will be in our area on Wednesday / Thursday and if this remains unchanged then we could be in for a very blustery day.  The conditions next week at 1.5Km above ground level are on the cusp of being OK for snow so when it does rain next week we may see the odd snow shower or icy rain too.  At this stage I cannot see any disruptive snowfall.

Summary : A bright morning turning cloudier as the day passes.
