I hope that you all managed to get out and about yesterday and, if you time it right, you will be able to do so similarly today (Father’s day). There is a big change ahead weather wise for us later on this afternoon so if you want to get jobs done outside then I would recommend that you get the tools back in the shed by 16:00 hours.
The radar images are showing that a low pressure system is developing out to the NW of our region but this system will move across the UK as the day passes from W to E. The low pressure system will bring rain to most parts of the UK and the risk of rain in our area after 17:00 is about 75-80%. Some of the rain could be moderate to heavy.
Before then it will be a generally cloudy and humid day (relative humidity in the 80% area for most of the day) with very few, if any, brighter spells.
Our top temperature will be around 18c and overnight the low will be around 14c.
The wind will be deriving from the SSW-WSW today. The average wind speed will be around 5mph this morning but increasing to around 8-9mph as the low pressure system pushes nearer and then into our area.
Summary: A cloudy humid day with a high risk of rain in the late afternoon.
