Last day of high pressure

Today sees our last full day of high surface air pressure which has seen a dry period that stretches back to around the 10 March 2016.  Tomorrow will begin to see the air pressure reduce as the jet stream pushes across the UK.  This will bring some unsettled weather to our area over the next few days.

Today will be a dry but cloudy day.  Our top temperature will reach around 8-9c and the overnight minimum will be around 4c.  Last night’s minimum overnight temperature was a very mild 6.2c.  The risk of rain in or area today is 8%.

The wind will be light for much of the day but will bring cool air from the NW this morning but the wind will be a little warmer during the afternoon as the derivation moves to the W.  The average wind speed today will be 4-6mph.

Later on tomorrow could see the first measurable rain for a few days and further showers are predicted on the radar precipitation forecasts over the weekend.  The best of the Bank Holiday weather is Friday.

Summary: A mild but cloudy day.
