Today sees the surface air pressure increase as the jet stream moves position northward. By Friday the jet stream will return to the “omega” formation. You may recall that it was the omega formation (two low pressure “loops” either side of a high pressure block) that delivered us the long dry spell in the middle of the month. This particular blocking system, however, will not last much beyond the weekend but at least we be able to enjoy another dry spell.
During today we will see some bright spells through a partly cloudy sky. The risk of any rain today is only around 15%. The highest risk of rain will be during the mid afternoon.
The brighter spells will help lift our top temperature up to a top temperature of around 9c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be cool at around 1-2c.
The wind will start the day deriving from the SSW but as the day passes and the jet stream moves towards its omega position the wind derivation will move clockwise towards the WNW.
Summary: A partly cloudy day bringing some brighter spells. Remaining dry.
