As we discussed in yesterday’s blog the air pressure is rising and will settle at the high point of 1044mb later today.
This high pressure means that we have seen the last of the breezy weather for a while at least and, instead, we will see clear spells during the day and some cold and frosty spells overnight. The cloud cover will be generally thin and at a high level. The risk of any rain today is no greater than 6%.
Today’s top temperature will be around 6c and overnight the low will be at freezing point or just below. My thought is we will see a minimum temperature of around -1c.
It is interesting to see that over the last six years I have been recording rather than just observing the weather that, on this day, we have had as many mild days as we have had cool periods. The results over the last six years (all measurements taken within roughly an hour of each other) are:-
Year Degree c at approx 08:30 hours
Today’s wind will be deriving from the WSW-SW for the majority of the day. The breeze will be blowing at a very light 3-4mph.
Summary : A cool start. some brighter spells during the day. Cool again overnight.
