There will be some early morning drizzle and light rain around first thing this morning. The rain radar images are showing that a rain carrying cloud is just catching the edge of our area around 08:00 to 09:30 hours but that it will then blow beyond our area.
There are one or two further smaller systems that will pass near to our patch but, overall, I expect the risk of further rain to be no greater than 35% and for remainder of the day to be staying mainly dry. To support this belief I can see from the charts that the air pressure will begin to steadily rise during the morning to eventually settle at around 1025mb (starting from 1020mb at 08:00 hours)..
It will be a generally cloudy day as the jet stream is today pushing across the UK for the majority of the day. The good news is that the jet stream will start another journey northwards later tonight and into tomorrow. This system will then eventually sit well above the northern coast of Scotland and we will then have some finer weather on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as a consequence. (The best days being Tuesday and Wednesday).
We can, however, expect some brighter spells today too (around 3-4 hours). Our top temperature will be around 20c and the overnight low will be around 14c.
The wind today will be deriving from the W-WNW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Summary: A drizzly start but becoming dry during the morning. Some brighter spells later.
