Comparing today to last year

Today sees us wake up to a much brighter and fresher day.  The air temperature at approximately o6:30 hours was 11c and the overnight minimum was just into double figures at 10.6c (05:48 hours).  In 2013 and 2014 the minimum temperature on the corresponding day was around 14c.

Last year we were in a period of very warm weather and the top temperature was around 29c.  Today will not see such dizzy heights as the jet stream continues to travel across the UK from West to East.  This will bring mild temperatures and some cloud.  The cloud will be at its most dense during the afternoon.

It will, however, not be a totally cloudy day and we will see some brighter spells too.  These brighter spells will push our top temperature up towards 18-19c.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 9-10c.

The radar images are not currently showing a greater risk than 18% of rain in our area.  Any rain would be localised and short-lived but, in general, the information at the moment suggests a dry day in our area.

The wind will be deriving from a SW-W arc and the average wind speed will be around 6-7mph.

Summary : A partially cloudy allowing for some brighter spells. It will be milder and less humid than of late.
