Although the barometer continues to show a gentle rise in the air pressure this does not mean that we are out of the woods as far as further showers are concerned. Already overnight / early this morning we have received 1.8mm of rainfall in our area and there is a 60% chance of further showers during the drive to work today / first thing this morning.
From mid morning until lunchtime we may see the odd brighter spell but generally we will see a reasonable covering of low to medium height cloud.
As the day passes we will see the air pressure drop slightly. This is due to a low pressure system that will move into the UK from the north. The cloud, rain and winds from this low pressure system will generally centre further North from us but we will see a slight increase in wind speeds, increase cloud thickness and the odd rain shower overnight / tomorrow morning.
Overall it will be a mild day with a top temperature of around 10-11c and a low of around 7-8c.
The wind will be deriving from the SW for the majority of the day. The average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Finally, if you are travelling to towards the W into Shropshire and East Wales this afternoon you may come across some misty patches as the air pressure decreases.
Summary. A generally mild day with increasing cloud cover.
