Today will see the temperatures soar into the mid 20s (top 25-27c) as warm air from southern europe once again reaches our region.
It will, however, not be sunshine all the way as the day will start off with some cloud. This cloud cover will reduce as the day passes.
With the heat comes the risk of some rain formed by rising convection currents and, today, we have a 40% risk of some lightish showers once the day begins to cool (from 15:00 hours).
Overnight will see some clear spells (ideal for our astronomer friends) but it will be warm. The overnight low will be around 16-17c.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from a NE-SE arc. The average wind speed will be around 5mph.
Summary : A warm day with a top temperature of around 25-27c. A 40% risk of light rain late afternoon.
