Weather prospects for today and the first part of February.

The good news for today is that the air pressure is gradually rising and the distance between the  points of similar pressure are getting further apart.  This means that the risk of rain reduces as the day passes (after 11:00 hours the risk is at 20%).  The wind will also be a lot lighter than yesterday.

As the day passes we are likely to see the odd spell of sunshine although it will remain cool.  Today’s top temperature will be around 5-6c and overnight the low will be around 2-3c.  The air pressure will increase to around 1010mb by the end of the day.

Th wind will be deriving from a SW-WSW direction for the majority of the day.  The average wind speed will be around 8mph with gusts of around 20-25mph.

The GEFS ensemble (a collection of averaged weather data) shows (follow the thicker red line) that we can expect it to be generally cool in the first two weeks of February (hardly as surprise as it is Winter) with the average temperature similar to today.  If you look carefully at the chart you will see that tomorrow and Monday do have an increase in top temperature to around 10c.  It is from the 2nd that the average temperature reduces by a few degrees.

Summary: A generally dry day.  less breeze than yesterday.
