Time seems to be really flying buy at the moment and we are already at the last Saturday in June. Romantically we would, therefore, imagine that we are in the midst of a warm sunny period of summer but, unfortunately, I cannot bring you that news today.
Today will see some occasional bright spells but there will also be times when the cloud cover draws in too. The radar images are showing some small clusters of rain cloud moving across the UK and there is a 70% risk of some rain in our area sometime from around 10:30 hours until mid evening. I would expect any rain to be similar to yesterday i.e. short lived but moderately heavy.
Our top temperature today will be around 18c and the minimum temperature overnight will be around 11c. Bournemouth saw the minimum temperature dip as low as 7c yesterday.
The wind will be deriving from the SW first thing this morning before heading clockwise to end the day from a W-NW arc. The average wind speed will be around 5-6mph.
Summary: A partly cloudy day, mild, but with the threat of some short sharp showers.
