How much rain yesterday?

After yesterday’s “wash out”, when 13.2mm of rain fell on our area, today will see us receive far less precipitation.  So far today 1.6mm of rain has fallen and whilst we do have a 65% risk of further rain today it will not be so persistent as it was for much of yesterday.

The barometer at 06:30 hours is currently showing that the air pressure is rising slowly but low air pressure systems will remain in our area today.

The low air pressure means that the majority of the day will generally cloudy but we will see some bright spells along with the risk of the odd shower during the day.

The risk of rain is at its highest during the afternoon and early evening although it will not rain consistently through this period.  Some of the rain could be moderate to heavy (particularly later on in the day).  This morning the radar images are showing plenty of rain cloud moving across the UK but the vast majority are missing our immediate area.

Our top temperature today will be around 18c and overnight the low will be similar to last night at around 13c (last night’s minimum temperature was 13.5c at 00:00 hours).

The wind will be deriving from the W-WSW for the majority of the day.  The average wind speed will be around 8mph.

Summary : Low air pressure continues to bring cloud and the threat of rain to our area.  Some brighter spells too.
