Garden party weather?

Today sees the air pressure rising for the majority of the day from 1017mb to around 1020mb.  This movement indicates that we are set for some fine and stable weather today. If you are planning a barbecue or garden party then today is the best day of the weekend to hold it. There is less than a 10% risk of any rain today.

As the day passes the jet stream will slowly move from its early morning position along the south coast (hence why we have some very  bright spells this morning) to a position across the UK by mid evening.  This positional change will see the cloud cover increase as the day passes but, overall, it will be  fine day.  Our top temperature will be around 20c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 12c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 11.3c at 05:12 hours).

The air pressure changes will mean that we feel some breeze.  The wind will start the day from the SW but as the day passes it will derive from the W.  The average wind speed will be around 8mph.

Overnight we will see a low pressure pushing in from the W and this will bring rain to our area tomorrow morning.

If you want to cut the grass or simply get out and enjoy the region then today is the best day to do so.

A word of warning for grass pollen sufferers is that today’s count is forecast to be high to very high.

Summary. A dry and bright day with cloud increasing later in the day.
