Century on the board today

It is a cool start to the day with the air temperature “dipping” to 9.7c at 05:06 hours this morning.  We can only expect a top temperature of around 14-15c today and overnight the minimum will once again be around the 10c mark.

The rain radar images are clearly showing a large bulk of rain cloud heading our way.  The leading edge will reach us around 09:00 hours and this will bring an 80% risk of some drizzle/light rain in the earlier portion of the morning.  The rain will, however, become more persistent as the morning passes and we can expect some heavier spells during the late morning and into the afternoon.  The risk of rain today is greater than 90%.

So far this month our area has received 99.4mm of rainfall this month so we can expect to see a “century on the scoreboard” before the end of the day.

The wind will be deriving from the SW for the majority of the day and the average wind speed will be 6mph.

If you are a tennis fan then there is a high risk (80%) of some rain interruptions on the uncovered courts at Wimbledon today.

Summary: A cool day with rain moving in to the area this morning with a high risk of further showers during the afternoon.
