It is an early start for me today and so I have posted this report a little earlier than usual. Please accept my apologies if this causes you any inconvenience.
At the time of observation (approximately 05:30 hours) the air pressure was reducing rapidly, however, I have examined the circumstances and it is due to the jet stream moving position. The jet stream will, by the end of the day, be running across the UK from west to east. Consequently we will see the surface air pressure begin to rise again from mid evening.
The risk of risk of any precipitation formed by the low pressure system is, therefore, generally averted although there is still a low 17% risk of some light rain today. Overall it will be a dry but cloudy day.
Coupled with the dry day will be a slight reduction in air temperature from yesterday. Our top temperature will be around 12c but overnight it will be cooler at around 5-6c. This is still mild for the time of year. By midweek we will temperatures values reduce to around 2 to 3c overnight. This will be much more typical.
The wind will start the day deriving from the SSE-S but as the day passes we will see this derivation move slowly clockwise the end the day from the WSW. The average wind speed today will be around 8mph.
Summary: A generally cloudy day but remaining mild for the time of year.
