Steady rain falling

Today sees steady rain falling at the time of my 06:40 observations, however, the good news is that this rain system will clear our are by mid morning.  There is a 70% risk of further showers later in the day but, during the daylight hours it will be predominantly dry and occasionally bright.

An interesting aspect to notice today is the change in wind direction. Starting off from the SW first thing morning the wind will move clockwise towards the W-WNW as the day passes.  Over the next few days we will see this wind direction move completely towards the N.

The change in wind direction will see a reduction in air temperature.  Out top temperature today will be around 11c and overnight the minimum will be around 8-9c.

The wind will be breezy at times with the average speed around 8mph but gusts will be around double that speed.

Summary : A breezy day with early showers clearing for a while.
