Halloween Weather

If you are attending a Halloween party then the good news is that you will be able to do so in the knowledge that the rain will not wash off your make up!  The greatest risk of any rain today is less than 10% and as the day passes into the afternoon and evening the risk reduces even further to 5%.

A system of high air pressure is currently moving into our area and by the end of the day the barometer will be reading around the 1024mb mark.  This is an increase from this morning’s reading of 1020.3mb.

There will be very little breeze to talk about and any breeze that does exit (average wind speed of 2-3mph) will be deriving from a SE-SW arc.  This wind direction will bring in some mild air.  Although this morning will be generally cloudy with medium to high level clouds we may see some fragmentation during the afternoon (bringing some bright spells) and early evening.

Our top temperature today will be around 15c and overnight the low will be around 9c.

Tomorrow looks as if it will be similarly mild and dry although, due to the warm air from the S and the high air pressure meaning that there will be little or no breeze we are likely to wake to some mist / fog patches.

October has been a relatively dry month with our area only receiving 82% of the average rainfall for the month.

Summary : A dry, mild but cloudy start.  Possibly some brighter spells later.
