A good day for a walk

Today starts off with some grass frost as the air temperature reduced to 0.8c earlier this morning (around 06:00 hours).  The good news, however, is that the air pressure is increasing rapidly and for today, at least, the risk of rain is only around 8%.  It is a good day to get those walking shoes on.

The jet stream is currently sitting below the UK and this is allowing the northern climate to dominate. This means that today will see some bright spells and medium height cloud cover.  The cloud cover will not really become prominent until later in the afternoon / early evening.

Our top temperature today will be around 10c and overnight, with increased cloud cover, the minimum temperature will be around 5c.

The wind today will be deriving from a WSW-WNW arc.  The breeze will be light due to the high air pressure system. During the day we can expect wind speeds to average a gentle 4mph.

Summary:  A dry and often bright day.  A little cooler than of late but with little risk of rain.
