Today seems the last day of the current fine and bright weather spell although it will not be until the end of the week that we see any real rain. The risk of rain today is around 4%.
The surface air pressure will continue to reduce today to eventually settling around 1012mb and by late evening we will see the formation of a general cloud covering. This generally more cloudy situation will then be the picture for the next few days. Eventually we will see some rain (possibly Friday) with the heaviest of the rain likely to be on Saturday. (Not such good news for V Festival visitors).
Today, however, will be a generally fine and bright day with a top temperature of around 24c. Overnight, with the additional cloud cover, will be very mild at 14c. Last night’s minimum temperature was 10.9c at 05:36 hours.
The wind today will be deriving from an ESE-ENE arc. The average wind speed will be around 5mph. This wind direction will bring with it cooler air particularly when it is from the E to ENE portion of the arc. The air temperature, therefore, may feel quite cool at times in the shade.
Summary: A fine a bright day with long sunny spells.
