It is an overcast start to the day but, fear not, because some brighter spells will break through turning the daylight hours into a warm and, often, pleasant day.
In the background, however, there will be reduction in the surface air pressure. This will become noticeable to us as the wind speed will increase a little during the afternoon and early evening. This reduction in surface air pressure (from 1020mb to 1016mb today and eventually 1013mb overnight) will eventually bring rain to a lot of England either late tonight or tomorrow. The Met Office have issued a yellow warning for rain tomorrow.
Our top temperature today will be around 23c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 15c. The risk of rain during daylight hours is around 7% and this figure will increase to 20% late tonight.
Today’s wind will start off light from the N-NE with an average wind speed of around 3mph but as the air pressure reduces we will feel the average wind speed increase to around 7-8mph. During the afternoon the wind derivation will be from the ESE-SE.
Summary for today: A mild day with some cloud to start and with brighter spells developing.
