There is a slight change taking place today as the air pressure reduces to around 1020mb from around the peak of 1024mb yesterday. This is due to a low pressure system to the north pushing slightly south.
The jet stream is also running across the UK today and this will bring mild weather but, as usual, with a west to east jet stream there is a risk of some rain later in the afternoon and evening as the day cools. The risk of any rain today is around 65%. As any rain will be most likely light then you probably still have to water your tubs and hanging baskets.
We will start off cloudy but there will also be some bright spells too. Our top temperature will be around the 20c mark. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 10c. last night’s minimum temperature was 12.3c at 02:20 hours.
Because of the “squeeze” on the air pressure from the north and the subsequent surface pressure changes it will be a little breezier than yesterday. the average wind speed will be around 8mph and the wind will be deriving WSW-SW during daylight before moving clockwise towards the WNW later this evening.
Summary. A dry but cloudy start. Mild but breezier with a slight risk of some showers later.
