Firstly, if you haven’t done already, you have to put the clocks forward one hour as today is the start of British Summer Time. (Hurrah!) As a cruel act of fate it is also mothering sunday although, because of BST, mothers have lost an hour of their day.
What we can, however, bring to the day is some positive weather news. Although the air pressure will continue to reduce slightly as the day passes (ending the day around 1024mb) it will still be high enough to block any low pressure system from developing in our area and, therefore, bringing a risk of rain. There is only a 4% risk of any rain in our area today.
The day will start off with some bright spells but as the day passes we may see some high level cloud develop. Any cloud will, however, not prevent it from being a pleasant day.
Our top temperature will be around 13c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 3c. Last night /early this morning the low was 2.4c at 06:16 hours.
The wind will be deriving from the ENE/NE and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Today is another great day for getting outside and enjoying the good weather. Mild weather will remain with us for the remainder of the week although we will see a little more cloud which , as the week passes, will see the top temperatures reduce slightly (to around 11-12c) and minimum temperatures increase to around 5-8c.
Finally, I would like to wish my own mom, Joyce in Pelsall, a very happy Mother’s day.
Summary for today : Another dry and pleasant day.
