A drizzly start

It is a drizzly and damp start to the morning.  The rain radar images are showing that our area is on the western fringes of a rain cloud system that is moving up the country from the SE.  This system had already delivered some rain to our area by the time of my observations but we can expect around another 1-2mm during the day to add to the 1.6mm that had fallen by 06:30 hours.  The risk of further rain today is 95%.

Overall today will be a cloudy and occasionally damp day with just the odd brighter spell.

As the day passes our area will further become under the influence of a low pressure system that is moving towards the NW out to the W of the UK.  This will bring us further rain showers overnight, a decrease in air pressure to around 1004mb and a slight increase in wind speeds.

The wind will be light for much of the day averaging a speed of around 3mph.  The wind will generally derive from the WSW.  Later this evening the wind speed will increase to around 7mph as the air pressure begins to reduce.

Our top temperature today will be around 13c and the overnight low will be around 10c.

Summary : A mild day with a high risk of rain/ drizzle. The odd brighter spell later in the day.
