There is a saying in weather forecasting that if you state that “the weather today will be the same as yesterday” then 80% of the time you would be right. In overview today will be like yesterday with spells of sunshine and showers. There is, however, a little more detail I can add.
This morning will be generally bright with a thin covering of medium height cloud. Our top temperature will increase to around 9-10c. From noon until early to mid evening, like yesterday, we run the risk of seeing some rain showers. These showers are due to the stronger spring sunshine warming the cool ground and will generally bring showers during the warmest part of the day.
The likelihood of rain in our area today is around 70%. The radar images are showing that, in general, the showers will be light but one or two localised showers could be towards moderately heavy.
Overnight will be a little milder than recent night’s with the minimum temperature reaching around 4c. Last night’s low was 2.2c at 05:25 hours.
The wind will start the day deriving from the SW but will soon travel clockwise towards the W / WNW. The average wind speed today will be around 6mph.
Summary: A mild start but the risk of rain showers appear during the afternoon.
