The air pressure is rising slowly and by tomorrow we will be entering a system of high pressure. This will bring some dry and mild weather from Wednesday onward.
Today, therefore, is a day of transition. The day will be generally cloudy and we will have high risk of some rain showers (around 70%). There will, however, still be the odd bright spell when the sun breaks through thin or fragmented cloud. The highest risk of showers is during daylight hours and up to around 18:00 hours.
The good news is that the showers will be light and generally short-lived. This is relatively good news school teacher Geoff Headley and others involved with the Kwik Cricket tournament at the Bronze cricket club today.
The pupils and staff will, however, need to keep warm as the top temperature today will only be 11c. Overnight the low will be around 5c as the cloud bed begins to thin and clear.
The wind will be from the WSW/SW early morning before moving clockwise towards the WNW as the day passes. The average wind speed will be around 8mph.
Summary. High risk of showers during daylight hours but some bright spells too. Cool at 11c.
