More than average

After having already received some overnight / overnight precipitation the radar images are showing that there are plenty of rain carrying clouds passing through our area today.

This morning we should see only some light and sporadic showers, however, as we pass into the afternoon and, in particular, the early evening the risk of more generalised rain heightens.  The risk of further rain today is 90%.

Local cricket captains will have to decide whether it is better to bowl or bat first in difficult conditions. Either way they will be faced with using a wet ball for much of the day.

As you could have probably guessed that with the high risk of rain is that there is going to be plenty of cloud around but we will see a few odd brighter spells break through from time to time this morning.  Out top temperature today will be around 16c and overnight the low will be around 8-9c.

The wind will be deriving from the SSW for much of the day and average wind speed will be around 8mph.

So far this month we have received 47.8mm of rain and the average for the month is 50mm and we still have a few days to go yet.  It looks as if April and May 2016 are both going to record greater than average rainfall totals.

Summary:  A generally cloudy day with a high risk of rain particularly in the afternoon and early evening.
