Yellow weather warning issued by the Met Office

Today sees us start off relatively calmly with just some misty drizzle in the air and low, but not cold, air temperatures.  At 06:20 hours the air temperature was 6.1c which is very similar to the same time over the last two years.

A noticeable feature, however, this morning is that there is very little breeze. This situation will change later today.  The Met office have issued a yellow weather warning for our area from 16:00 hours when, as the charts all suggest, stronger winds will reach our area.  This situation is due to a low pressure system tracking across our region.  A yellow warning is the second lowest warning available.

This morning the average wind speed will be around  5mph but as the day passes into late afternoon we will see the wind average at 20-25mph with peak gusts of up to 45mph (the peak will be around 21:00 hours).  The wind will be deriving from a W to SW arc for the majority of the day.  The winds speeds will reduce slightly overnight and will become less “gusty”.

When the air pressure begins to reduce around late morning and through the afternoon and evening we will have a 75% risk of rain showers.  Some of the showers could be moderately heavy.

Our top temperature today will be 13c and the overnight low will be around 7c.

Summary : Mild start with stronger winds and some rain later.
