The jet stream is currently sitting across the upper northern reaches of the UK. This is allowing high surface air pressure to sit (and build) above our area over the next few days. By late tonight we can expect to see the barometer read around 1032mb.
The continued high air pressure and the SW/WSW breeze will continue to bring us a cocktail of general cloud cover but mild air temperatures. The air temperature at 06:30 hours this morning was already above 13c. Despite this promising start the top temperature will only be around 2c warmer at 15-16c. Overnight will again remain mild with a low of around 11c. Last night’s minimum temperature was 12.4c at 02:15 hours.
Despite the general cloud cover today the risk of any rain is only 14%.
The breeze will be at its strongest this morning with gusts of around 12mph and an average speed of 6-7mph. As the day passes the wind speed will reduce in speed as the air pressure settles. The wind will be deriving, mostly, from a S-WSW arc.
The outlook for the weekend is for more mild but cloudy weather. The risk of rain, however, will remain low. Ideal weather for getting out and about.
Summary : A generally cloudy day but remaining mild.
