Today starts off cool but mild with some hazy sunshine breaking through thin clouds. At the time of my observations the barometer is also showing that there is a slow increase. All of these early observations looks very promising but are they?
The sad answer is no.
During the morning it will continue to be mild with a 25% risk of the odd light shower but we will have some bright spells. However, as the afternoon passes the air pressure will begin to reduce rapidly and by the end of the day we will see a barometer reading of around 992mb. This low pressure system will bring with it some high winds and rain. The risk of rain this evening is around 90%. Some of the rain could be heavy.
The strong wind will remain with us throughout the night but the rain will move away. The Met office have issued a yellow weather warning for tonight. This means that there could be some disruption on the roads and we are at risk of some tree damage.
Today’s wind will start the day off light and from the WSW but as the afternoon passes and the air pressure begins to rapidly change the wind will move towards the S. The wind speed will increase to around 9mph with gust speeds of around 30-35mph.
Tomorrow will also start off breezy and there is a risk of some isolated showers on Thursday and Friday. So, unless you are at home to keep an eye on the weather it doesn’t look like you will be able to leave out your washing all day until Saturday.
Summary for today: A bright start but during the afternoon becoming cloudier with a high risk of heavy rain and increased wind speeds during the evening.
