After yesterday’s glorious sunny weather today sees a lot more cloud around as the air pressure begins to reduce slightly. The cloud is being generated by the wind direction which is generally from a westerly direction.
The air pressure will still remain high even when it reaches its lowest reading today (around 1024mb) but the steady reduction will introduce a moderate breeze.
Despite the general cloud cover the risk of any rain today remains low at around 10%.
Our top air temperature will be around 14c which is very similar to this time last year. In 2011 our top air temperature was only around 11c.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from a W-WSW arc and the average wind speed will be around 6mph with gust speeds of around 15mph. This breeze will add a wind chill factor of around 2c.
Gardeners need to begin preparation for protecting their young and tender plants today and tomorrow as we can expect to see some ground frost on Monday morning.
Summary: A dry but generally cloudy day.
