It is a very bright start to the morning and the barometer is showing that the air pressure is rising slowly. We can also expect to see plenty of bright spells before lunch with only a 10% risk of rain.
Today’s top temperature will be around 18-19c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 13c.
This afternoon the position will begin to alter a little. The SW breeze and a lowering air pressure will help increase the cloud cover across our area and this will bring a 25% risk of some rain before tea time.
From early to mid evening the risk of rain will increase to 75%. The rain radar forecast images are suggesting that the heaviest of the rain will be to the south of our region when around 15-18mm of rain could fall. We are more likely to see 2-3mm although this position can easily change (either way i.e from no rain to very heavy rain) as it will only need a few degrees alteration to the wind direction to make a lot of difference.
Today’s breeze will be deriving generally from the SW. The average wind speed today will be around 5-6mph.
Summary for today: Some bright spells to start the day. Increasing risk of rain as the afternoon passes into evening.
