Yesterday’s storm Doris is now beyond our area and it was pleasant to be able to hear the birds singing when I was making some of my observations this morning. This was a far cry from yesterday’s roar of the wind. As a matter of interest the top wind speed I recorded yesterday was 54mph at 09:36 hours.
To further demonstrate that the low pressure system is beyond our area is the rapidly increasing air pressure. By mid afternoon the air pressure will be around 1016mb.
The early morning rain will generally be beyond our area by 07:00 hours and we can look forward to a bright morning. The sun, breaking through, a fragmented cloud bed will help us reach a top temperature of 7c. You will, however, find the commute to work a little chilly as the air temperature will only be around 4c. With the wind chill this will feel more like 2c.
During the afternoon the cloud bed will thicken and by late tonight there will be a 40% risk of rain. Overnight the risk of rain is 80%.
It will still be a breezy day but nothing compared to yesterday. The average wind speed will be around 6-8mph. The wind will be deriving from the WSW for much of the day.
Summary for today : A cool start but some bright spells this morning. Increasing cloud this afternoon will bring rain later tonight / overnight.
