Don’t wait until the afternoon

After a cold night when the temperature reduced to -0.6c at 04:32 hours we are all waking up to a reasonably bright start.  The cloud layer is thin and at approximately 08:00 hours the temperature has risen to 1c.

My tip for today would be, despite the cool temperature, if you want to step outside today then do it as early as you can this morning as the weather pattern is about to change.

Firstly, as the morning passes you will notice an increase in the wind speed.  The wind will be deriving from a S-SW arc and at around 08:00 hours the average wind speed will be around 5mph.  As the day passes this speed will at least double and probably treble by mid afternoon.

The increased wind speed is due to a complex low pressure system that will move across the UK from the W.  The barometer is already showing that the air pressure is reducing because of the movement of this system.

The edge of the low pressure system will reach our area from around 11:00 -12:00 hours and we may see the odd wintry showers.  The main body of the system will reach us by early afternoon (13:00 – 14:00 hours).  We will see persistent rain for much of the afternoon and evening.  The chance of rain today is 95%.

Our top temperature today will be around 8c and overnight the low will be around 1c.

Summary.  A cool but bright,  Turning breezy with rain during the afternoon.
