Despite the generally cloudy start to the day there is some good news to report as the air pressure will rise rapidly this morning towards 1016mb. Coupled with this is that the rain radar images are only showing small cluster of rain cloud this morning. The vast majority will either miss our area or pass us by.
We still do have a 32% risk of some rain this morning and early afternoon but this should be more than offset by the 3-4 hours of brighter spells.
A the day passes int the evening we will see the rain clouds gather again and later this evening / overnight the risk of some rain will increase to around 80%.
It will be a mild and slightly less breezy day than yesterday. Our top temperature will be around 19c and overnight, with all of the additional cloud “blanket”, the minimum temperature will be around 16c.
The wind will be deriving from the warm SW and the average wind speed will be around 6-8mph.
There is some talk in the press of a heat wave reaching the UK next week. This system, at the moment, looks to be centred around the SE and E of England with temperatures reaching 27-28c. Our area, at the moment seems to be peaking around 22-24c.
Summary: Generally dry and cloudy in the day. Rain later tonight/ overnight.
