Good Friday weather 2016 and a sting in the tail

Today sees the sun shining brightly as we start the day ad we will see plenty more bright spells as the day passes.  Good Friday 2016 will see the best weather over this Easter weekend.  The risk of any rain today is less than 10% but we should see around 7-8 hours of clearer spells before the cloud increases a little this afternoon and evening.

Yesterday we received the first measurable rain in our area for quite some time and I am sure that many gardeners welcomed it.   Overall only around 1mm fell in the area but we have received nearly 49mm in the month (161mm for the year).

Our top temperature will rise to around 12c today and the minimum overnight temperature will be a mild 6c.  last night’s minimum temperature was 4.9c at 04:38 hours.

As the day passes a low pressure system will begin to push into our area from the W and this will bring “the sting in the tail” with increased wind speeds during the later part of tonight, overnight and through tomorrow.  Today’s average wind speed will be around 8mph with the wind deriving from the SW for much of the day.  Overnight the wind speed will increase to around 10mh with gusts of around 30mph.

Tomorrow will see the risk of increase during the morning and we are most likely to see some rain during the afternoon.  I can give more precise details in tomorrow’s blog.

Summary: A bright start becoming cloudier later but remaining dry.
