Today is going to be a rather cloudy end to the year although it will be mild. This is good news for those travelling in and around our area during daylight hours.
Further north there will be rain falling and to the south there is some persistent fog. This fog is causing wide-spread travel disruption. We are, therefore, in the best place in the UK but I guess we already knew that!
We will not see much in the way of sunshine as medium and low and medium height cloud will dominate the day. The top temperature will be around 7c and overnight the low will be around 4-5c.
A band of rain is steadily moving down the UK and will reach our area in the early hours of tomorrow. This will bring a 90% risk of rain to our area. Those revellers still out in the early of tomorrow are those most likely to be effected although we are still likely to see rain falling at breakfast time tomorrow.
The wind will be bringing warm air from the SW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Finally, can I take this opportunity to wish all the readers of this blog and very happy and healthy 2017.
