The surface air pressure at the time of observations (06;33 hours) was steady at around 1008.6mb but, as the day passes, we will see this increase slightly to around 1012mb. This is good news as it suggests that we are set for a generally dry day with the risk of the odd light shower.
The rain radar images are showing plenty of rain cloud to the north of us towards Manchester and our main risk of rain is early afternoon (45%) although, hopefully, this system will simply blow by. Yesterday 2.4mm of rain fell in our area.
During daylight hours it will be a generally cloudy day with a top temperature of around 19c. Overnight the cloud will thin out a little (due to a more northerly wind) and this will allow the air temperature to reduce to around the 12-13c mark.
The wind will start off light but we will see a slight increase as the day passes and the surface air pressure changes. The average wind speed will be around 6mph. The wind will start off deriving from the SW this morning and will end the day from the WNW.
Summary: Another generally cloudy day with a 48% risk of rain showers early afternoon.
