In the early hours of the morning British Summer Time ended and the clocks went back one hour. The end of BST signifies, for me, journeys home from work in the dark.
Today seems to want to signify that the summer is now over as, later tonight (around tea time), the cloud cover will clear and we will be left with a cool night. It is very possible that we will wake up to a ground frost tomorrow.
Today will see the air pressure steadily climb to around 1028mb but the early cloud cover and slight NW-NE breeze will ensure that it will not be too warm a day.
Our top temperature today will only be around 11c and the minimum overnight will be around 4c.
Today’s breeze will be light throughout the day but because of its more northerly derivation it will bring a chill with it. The average wind speed will be around 5 mph and this will reduce the “feel” (wind chill) of the air by around a degree.
The synoptic charts are suggesting that high air pressure will be maintained in our area over the next few days so we can expect to enjoy a generally dry week.
Summary: A cloudy start but the clouds will clear late afternoon/ early evening to leave a cool night.
