During the early hours a system of low pressure (known as Storm Angus ) was in position over our area. This storm has delivered high winds to the south of the UK but was certainly less damaging in our area.
Overnight 11mm of rain has fallen in our area. As I write this blog the the air pressure is rising as the low pressure system system moves eastwards across the UK. This means that the weather picture is improving.
The radar images are still showing that there is a 90% risk of some short lived rain showers until around lunchtime and it will remain a mostly cloudy and cool day.
Our top temperature today will be a cool 5c but in the wind this will feel more like 1c. This evening the cloud will thin a little and this will allow the air temperature to reduce to around 3c.
The wind will be deriving from the NW-NNW for a lot of the day and the average wind speed will be 10mph this morning but reducing to around 3-4mph later in the day as the air pressure increases and then settles around 993mb.
Summary : Some showers likely this morning but becoming dry later. The breeze speed will also reduce as the day passes. Remaining cool.
