West to East

As we discussed yesterday the air pressure has now reduced to around the 1013mb mark and the jet stream continues to take a path across the Midlands and the South of England.

This jet stream position will mean that we will have a breeze which first thing this morning will be from the SW.  Whilst the breeze is from this SW direction we will see more clear spells.  The wind direction will, however, move a few degrees clockwise to bring us a breeze from the W. Regular readers of this blog will know that a W to E wind direction inevitably means that we will see more cloud build up.

The additional cloud and lower air pressure will also mean that we will a risk of some light showers during the day.  The radar images are showing these to be very systems.  The risk of further rain today is around 45%.

Our top temperature will be around 15c and overnight the low will be around 7c.

The wind will be predominantly from the W and the average wind speed will be around 8-9mph.

Summary. Generally cloudy.  A few bright spells and a risk of the odd light shower too.
