Small margins

The system of high air pressure that we spoke about yesterday is now firmly in position over our area although, for today at least, the leading edge of the jet stream, is “curling back across the UK from the NE.  This “curl” will help create a little more cloud as the majority of the “stream” is above the UK and thus is allowing the southern and northern climates to mix a little.

The additional cloud cover will mean that it is a little warmer today than yesterday although we are talking very small margins.  As I write this blog our external air temperature is around 1.5c compared to -0.2c at the same time yesterday.  The temperature at the 06:32 hours last year was 5.5c.

Today we will have a top temperature of around 4c and overnight the low will be around -1c.  There is a chance of some light rain late this afternoon / early evening but the risk is only around 40%.

This afternoon will be generally cloudy but during the morning we can expect some fragmentation of the cloud base allowing the odd brighter spell to break through.

The wind will be deriving from  NW direction moving to the NE as the day passes due to the jet stream positioning.  The average wind speed will be around 5mph.

Summary.   A cool but generally dry day but with some cloud cover.
