First rain for how long?

With the bank holiday only a day away you did not need to be a weather forecaster to guess that the recent dry weather would end – well that is exactly what it is going to happen.  Today we will see the first measurable rain in or area since the 9 March 2016.

The jet stream will today be running across the UK in a general WNW to ESE direction and with it will be a low pressure system that, in turn, will also bring a high risk of rain to our area.  The risk of rain from late morning through to mid evening is around 70%.  It will not rain the entire period and the rain, apart from the early periods, is likely to be light.

Our top temperature will be a very mild 9c and the overnight low will be around 5c.  This is not too bad an overnight temperature for all those caravan owners who will be making their trip of the season.

The wind will be predominantly deriving from the SW and the average wind speed will be around 8mph.

Tomorrow (Good Friday) will be a predominantly dry day but we can expect to see some rain over the remaining days of the bank holiday weekend.

Summary: A cloudy day with a high risk of some rain..
