Will April showers continue?


April 2016 is certainly turning out to be a wet month with 73.6mm of rainfall so far (264mm for the year so far).  Our rivers and reservoirs must be well topped up by now.

After the sleet that fell in the early hours we will see some bright spells during the morning.  The risk of rain is also at  its lowest point between 09:00 hours and lunchtime at around 20%.  This afternoon the risk of rain will increase with the cloud cover.  We are 60% likely to see some rain during the afternoon / early evening.

The wind will be deriving from the NW-NNW and this will bring with it some cool air.  Our top temperature today will be around 8c although this will feel more like 6c with the wind chill.

Overnight will be see another cool night develop.  The minimum temperature is likely to be around 1-2c and this will feel like zero in the wind chill.

The average wind speed today will be around 6-7mph.

Summary:  A bright start to the day after overnight rain/sleet.  Becoming cloudier during the afternoon with an increased risk of rain showers developing.
