Time to find your big coat.

At the time of observation (approximately 06:30 hours) the stars were shining through a thin veil of cloud although some light rain had fallen earlier.  This is a taster of what is in store for the rest of day.

It will be a mostly dry day with just a 30% risk of some localised rain. The clouds will dissipate from time to time to allow the sun to break through.  It will, however, remain cool with  top temperature of around 5c and an overnight low of around freezing point.  The wind chill will, however, make the temperature “feel” at least 2c lower than the thermometer is indicating.

The air pressure was rising rapidly at the time of observation and the air pressure charts are showing an increase in the spacing between the isobars.  This indicates that the wind speeds during the day will be a lot lower than we have recently experienced.  The average wind speed today will be around 6-7mph.  The wind will be deriving from a WSW-W arc.

Tomorrow and Sunday sees further rain showers with (currently) a 40% risk of them being wintry showers.  The next week sees a cold spell in our area with the top temperatures of around 3-4c and overnight lows always around or below freezing point. Next week will be “big coat” weather.  Even the postmen may put on their long trousers!

Summary.  A cool but generally dry day.
