Today sees us start off nearly 9c warmer than yesterday. Our air temperature at 06:30 hours this morning was 6.4c whilst at the corresponding time yesterday we were only at -1.5c.
The downside is that it is going to a drizzly morning with a risk of showers. The radar images are showing that rain will be a threat in our area until lunchtime. The risk of rain today is 90%. At the time of observation the air pressure was reducing rapidly. This is a another positive sign that a low pressure system is on its way.
This afternoon will see us reach a dry and possibly brighter spell although we will still have some cloud around. The top temperature will reach around 9-10c although this will feel more like 7c in the wind. As we reach late evening the cloud will break for a while leaving us with some clear spells overnight. These clear spells will allow the air temperature to reduce to 4-5c. By the time we reach tomorrow morning high cloud will have reformed over our area.
The wind will start off from the SE but as the day passes it will travel slightly clockwise towards the SW. The average wind speed will be 6-7mph.
Summary: A mild day but with widespread rain showers this morning. The rain will pass beyond our area after lunchtime.
