Don’t put off until tomorrow ……

The Met Office have issued a severe weather warning for tomorrow (13 August) when rain will be heading from the South coast.  Some areas will receive heavy rain. In our area the warning is that the rain would have moderate impact but low likelihood.

Whilst it is 80%+ likely that we will receive some rain the amounts, at this stage, are really too early to predict.  As an indication the current radar forecast models are showing the heaviest precipitation in our area is around midday and 21:00 hours but this picture can quickly change.  My advice would be if you plan to do something outside then do it today as tomorrow and Friday are most likely to deliver some rain.

Today will be bright at times with very little breeze.  We are currently in the centre of a high air pressure system and it will not be until later tonight that we will see the air pressure begin to reduce  (from 1024mb to 1020mb). This reduction in air pressure will help introduce a little breeze.

Our top temperature today will be around 22-23c and overnight the low will be around 12-13c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 9.6c at 05:46 hours).

The wind will be deriving from the N this morning before switching to the E mid to late afternoon.  The average wind speed today will be around 4-5mph.

Summary : A often bright but partly cloudy day – remaining dry.
