Jet stream on the move south

After the gusty wind and rain during the night the radar images are now showing fewer rain clouds heading our way.  Beyond 09:00 hours we can expect to receive some periods of partly clear sky which will allow the odd bright spell to shine.  Our top temperature today will be 6c with the overnight low around 2c.

We are, however, not completely clear of the risk of further rain today and it is 80% likely that we will see the odd localised rain shower.  The risk of rain is higher after dark.

The pressure charts are also showing that late afternoon early evening the points of pressure narrow for a few hours which will mean an increase in wind speed.  Overnight / early tomorrow the distance between the isobars widen which indicates that the wind will reduce in speed.  This morning we can expect an average wind speed of around 10mph and the wind will be deriving from the SW.  This afternoon and evening the wind speed will increase to an average of around 18-20 mph.

The jet stream images show that the “stream” is now heading south and by Friday it will be positioned to the south of the UK.  This will allow the northern climate to dominate in our area.  We can, therefore, expect reduced air temperatures over the weekend and into next week.

Summary.  A partly dry day but remaining breezy.
