A bright start but what later?

The surface air pressure is high this morning at around 1034mb and, as you would expect with high air pressure on a winter’s day, we have some ground frost and a clear sky.

The air temperature reached an overnight low of -2.1c at 04:17 hours last night but we will see some gradual warming as the day passes.  Our top temperature today will be around 7c.

There will, however, be a gradual change in conditions during the afternoon as the cloud cover gradually thickens.  The additional cloud will not bring a greater than a 15% risk of rain during the day but rain will develop in our area tomorrow.  The risk of rain and some sleet on Wednesday is currently around 80%.  By noon tomorrow the air pressure will have reduced to 1013mb.  With the increased cloud cover the overnight minimum temperature will be warmer than last night at around 3c.

As the day passes the wind derivation will change.  Starting the day from the WNW we can expect a gradual movement anticlockwise towards the S-SW.  The average wind speed today will be around 7-8mph.

Summary: A cold and bright start.  Becoming cloudier as the day passes.
