It is a cold and frosty morning that greets us today. At the time of observation the air temperature was below -2c and there was a harsh grass frost.
The weather, however, will see some change today. After the cold start, which may also lead to some mist patches forming as the morning warms up, it will be a partly bright morning. During the late morning and early afternoon the cloud cover will thicken and by mid to late afternoon the radar images are showing that a band of rain cloud will be moving through our area. This rain cloud will bring a high risk of some rain to our area (85%).
The cloud and rain will bring with it some warmer air and our top temperature today will be around 5c to 6c. Overnight the temperature low will be around 1c.
The wind will start the day deriving from the ENE but by the afternoon the derivation will have moved to the SW. The average wind speed first thing this morning will be around 2-3mph (hence the risk of some mist). As the day passes and the complex low pressure system moves in the wind speed will increase. By this afternoon we can expect wind speeds of around 8-10mph.
Summary. A clear and cold start leading to cloud and rain during the afternoon.
