It is another overcast start to the day and a look at the barometer sees that the air pressure is falling slowly. This does not generally indicate a fine day ahead. The synoptic charts suggest that the air pressure will reduce to around 1004mb.
The rain radar images confirm my thoughts that rain is on its way. A mass of rain cloud will reach our area around 07:00 hours but the leading edge is less dense and it may simply blow by. There are, however, some dense patches within the rain cloud system which, in total, is about 150 miles wide. These denser patches are 80% likely to bring some rain to our area during the period up until lunchtime.
This afternoon will then see the cloud fragment a little and we see some brighter spells. Our top temperature will reach around 20-21c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 13c.
The wind will start off from the NE before eventually moving clockwise towards the SW. The average wind speed today will be around 5m-6mph.
Summary for today: High risk of rain this morning. Improving picture later.
