There is a change in the weather pattern set to take place over the next few days. The jet stream is pushing up above the UK and the air pressure will rise. By the end of today we can expect the surface air pressure to be around 1040mb.
This high air pressure means that the risk of rain from mid afternoon today until, at least, mid-week will be extremely low. This is great news for all those that want to venture outdoors.
This morning the radar images are still showing the odd rain carrying cloud. These clouds bring a 20% risk of rain in our area this morning. The day will see the odd bright spot through mainly hazy cloud.
A noticeable feature when you step outdoors will be the approximate 7c drop in temperature from the same time yesterday. Our top temperature today will be around 6c. Yesterday’s top temperature was 13.2c at approximately 13:30 hours. Tonight will be cool with the lowest temperature being around 1-2c.
The wind will reduce in speed over the next 48hour as the high pressure settles in our area, however, today will still be breezy. The average wind speed will be around 8-9mph and the wind will derive from the WSW.
Summary : A hazy cloud day. Cooler than yesterday and still a little breezy.
