Today sees us start off with some early morning rain but the radar images are suggesting that this will clear during mid morning to leave us with a dry period until lunchtime. We will then see further rain showers reach our area. The risk of rain during the afternoon is around 95%. Further rain showers will then enter our region overnight (again 90%+ likely).
Our top temperature today will be around 10c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 5-6c.
The Met Office continue their severe weather warning for the day with a “yellow alert”. This means that high winds are likely to be present but the impact is expected to be low. As we discussed yesterday the increased wind speeds across much of the UK is being caused by a low pressure system centered in the northern reaches of Scotland.
The average speed today in our area today will be around 10-15mph with gusts speeds up to 40 maybe 45mph. This makes today a little breezier than yesterday. The wind will be deriving from the WSW. The increased wind speed will reduce the feel of the air temperature due to the wind chill by about 3-4c.
Although we have seen some rain recently the actual accumulated amount for the month is only around average for the month of November (about 60mm).
Summary: A damp start becoming dry for a while before further showers move in. Breezy all day.
