The new month has started just like the old one ended with mild air temperatures and some early morning rain. The rain showers are likely to remain with us throughout most of the early morning commute but may finish just before the 9am bell. The early morning rain will clear to the east.
The total rainfall for last month was 50.8mm which is around 73% of the expected levels for the month of January.
There is a 60% risk of further short lived showers during the day but it will be also mild. Our top temperature will reach 10c but this is not as much of a “one-off” as some will let you believe. The increased air temperature last year was, however, due to “Storm Henry”. The air temperature at 06:32hours on the 1 February 2016 was 10.8c although the average for a “normal” 1 february day is more like 3-4c. Tonight’s minimum temperature will be around 7-8c.
It will be an occasionally breezy day with the wind deriving from a SE to SSE arc. The average wind speed will be around 4mph although we are likely to see occasional increases to around 8 mph.
Summary for today : A drizzly start to the first of february. Remaining very mild all day.
