It is a very breezy start to Christmas Eve 2015 and the radar images are showing that a large band of rain is moving W towards our area. The rain will reach us early morning and we can expect showers and more prolonged periods of rain throughout the morning with a risk of rain 90-95%. There is also a reduced risk of further rain showers this afternoon. The risk this afternoon will, however, be lower at 45%.
It will be a cool day with the warmest part being first this morning when the air temperature is 11c. This will quickly reduce to a daytime high of 7c which, in the wind, will feel more like 4c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 5c (feeling like 2-3c).
If you are out and about during the daylight hours or tonight you will certainly need a warm coat.
The wind will be deriving from the WSW-SW and the average wind speed will be around 10mph with gust speeds of around 25mph.
Tomorrow looks as if we are set for a cloudy and breezy day with some too.
