It is the first day, for many, of the school holidays and to celebrate the weather is going to be kind to us today in our area.
Today we will see plenty of bright spells through partially cloudy skies and our top temperature will be around 21c. This is far less than in 2013 when on the same day we reached a top temperature of 29c but it will still be pleasant enough. Overnight our minimum temperature will be around 12c. (Last night our minimum temperature was 10.6c at 05:15 hours whilst on 18 July 2013 it was 17.2c at 05:15 hours).
The wind will be deriving from a WSW-SSW (predominantly SW) arc but it will be a little breezy. The average wind speed will be around 8mph. This breeze is due to the proximity of a low pressure system to the N of us.
There is only an 8% risk of rain during the day. (The radar images are showing a few clusters of light rain clouds that will pass through our area but I expect then to simply blow by.
Overnight low pressure and some rain clouds will push into our area and the risk of rain increases around 03:00 hours to 65%. We can expect to see that some showers will have fallen by breakfast time tomorrow. The risk of rain will, however, continue until around mid morning.
My advice would be to get up and get out and enjoy the day as tomorrow’s weather will be more questionable.
