Today sees the fifth “ride out” in memory of Stephen Sutton and, therefore, it is important that we get the weather to suit the occasion. I think we will!
For more information about the ride out and the times the procession will be in various parts of the area follow this link.
After 4.4mm of overnight rain the morning will be see plenty of bright spells and the air temperature will eventually reach a very mild 17c. The overnight rain was, however, welcomed, I am sure, by gardeners around the region. Overnight the air temperature will reduce to around 7/8c.
The radar images are showing that there will be some more rain clouds passing through our area this afternoon and these will bring around a 25% risk of the odd shower.
During the late afternoon / early evening the cloud cover will increase slightly and we are likely to receive more rain tomorrow morning.
The wind will be deriving from a SSW-WSW arc for the majority of the day and the average wind speed will be around 7-8mph.
Summary for today: A bright morning with a low risk of the odd rain shower during the afternoon.
