A very mild start to a January day

It is a very mild start to the day with the air temperature already above 12c at 08:30 hours. We can expect to see the thermometer “inch” a little further during the day to reach a maximum of around 14c.  This is in contrast to recent years when our top daytime temperature averaged around 5c.  Overnight will again remain mild with a minimum temperature of around 9c.  Today is ideal for a walk in the park

The mild weather is caused by the jet stream (see image below) bringing in mild air from, the SW as it loops towards the south before heading back northwards.  On Tuesday and Wednesday the jet stream will take a more west to east path across the UK and this will bring with it more rain.

Today will see plenty of cloud cover which will vary in thickness allowing different levels of brightness levels as the day passes.  Despite the cloud cover the risk of rain today is only 15%.

The wind will be deriving from the S-SW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.

Summary: A very mild day.  Variable cloud levels but very little risk of rain (15%).
