Dull and grey

As we discussed in yesterday’s post today sees a little rain falling in our area. By 06:30 hours 1.2mm of rain had already been measured as rainfall since midnight and we can expect another millimeter or soto add to this measurement as the day passes.  The risk of rain today after 06:30 hours is 99%.  This opinion is supported by the fact that the air pressure is continuing to reduce.  It will be dull and grey for much of the day.

The radar images are showing that rain clouds will be passing through our area for the majority of the daylight hours.  This does not mean that it will rain throughout the day but the risk of a rain shower is around 60-80% for much of the time.  The images, however, do show that there is a gap in the rain cloud system, in our area, around lunchtime.

Our top temperature today will be around 13c and the overnight low will be around 8c.

The wind will start the day deriving from the SW with an average wind speed of around 6mph.  by the end of the day we can expect the wind to move clockwise towards the NW.  This wind direction will bring with it some dry spells overnight and tomorrow.

Summary:  Showery start to the day with slightly lower daytime air temperatures than of late.
