It is a very cloudy grey start to the day and, sadly, that is how the rest of the day will generally pan out. The clouds will briefly dissipate later in the evening but overall, it will be an overcast day.
These dull condition are all due to the jet stream running generally west to east across the UK.
Our top temperature today will be around 18c and the overnight low will be around 14c. The day will be generally dry although there is around a 40% risk of rain mid to late afternoon. For the remainder of the day the risk of rain will be around 17%.
The synoptic charts show very little movement in the air pressure today and this “stable condition” will demonstrate itself by the production of a very light breeze. The average wind speed today will only be around 3-4mph. The wind will be deriving from a S-SE arc.
Summary for today: An overcast day with light winds and a slight risk of localised showers (particularly mid to late afternoon).
