Overnight / early this morning 2.6mm of rain had fallen in our area before 06:00 hours and we still have the risk of more showers up until mid / late afternoon. The risk of further rain today is at least 80%.
This observation is supported by the fact that the surface air pressure which, at the time of observation was already below 1000mb (999.4mb) and was continuing to reduce.
The radar images are suggesting that some of the rainfall during this morning’s commute could be moderate to heavy.
Today’s top temperature will be around 17c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 10c. This lowering of the air temperature is due, in part, to the dissipation and thinning of the cloud later in the afternoon and evening. This action will lead to us seeing the odd brighter spell during the afternoon.
Today’s breeze will be deriving mostly from the SW-W and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Summary for today: Rain likely this morning before eventually clearing bringing some occasional brighter spells.
