Better weather news

The weekend is here and along with it comes some better weather news!  Don’t get too excited though as next week will still bring some further showery weather on certain days.

Back to today. The surface air pressure is continuing to rise and will be above 1020mb by mid to late afternoon.  This does not mean that we are completely beyond the risk of some rain today but the risk is much lower at only around 20%.  The highest risk of showers is at the warmest point of the day i.e mid afternoon to early evening.

Our top temperature today will be around 17-18c and the overnight minimum will be similar to last night at around 12c (last night’s minimum temperature was 12.6c at 01:14 hours).

It will be a generally cloudy day but we will also see some brighter spells break through too.  If you are off on a walking or cycling adventure please be mindful that there could still be some deep lying water around the next corner in parts of our region.

The wind today will start off from the NW but as the day passes we will see it move anti-clockwise to spend a large part of the day deriving from the SW. The average wind speed will be around 3-4 mph this morning increasing to around 7mph later in the afternoon.

Summary:  A generally cloudy day with the odd brighter spell.  Remaining mostly dry with a low risk of rain later in the afternoon.
