Storm Aileen has now passed through our area although the eye of the storm was generally centred to the north of our area. For us it was no more than a stiff breeze and some moderate to heavy rain.
The barometer, at the time of my observations, was already showing that the air pressure was rising. Today will see the air pressure rise to around 1002mb by the end of the day.
We will see plenty of bright spells today and the breeze will remain “lively”. Our top temperature will reach around 16c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around the 10c mark.
We are, however, not completely out of the woods rain wise as the radar images are showing some small clusters of rain clouds that will pass through our area during the day. Many will simply blow by but we still have a 40% risk of some localised rain.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the WSW -W for much of the day. The average wind speed will be around 8mph with gust speeds reaching around 25mph.
Summary for today: Some bright spells but still a little breezy at times. A 40% rissk of the odd localised shower.
