It is another extremely mild start to the day with the air temperature at 06:25 hours already at 12.8c! This same day and time last year the air temperature was 6.6c.
The big difference between the two years is that this year the wind is deriving from the mild SSW whilst last year the wind was deriving from the cool N.
Our top temperature will not vary too much from our mild start but we may well see the thermometer “top out” at around 14c. Overnight will be another mild time with a low of around 8c.
The rain radar images do show that we are at risk of some precipitation today. The first risk is just around 08:15 hours today. Other small rain cloud cluster will then “bubble” across our region before a more widespread rain cloud system reaches our area mid evening. The risk of rain today is around 70%.
Today’s breeze will be “lively” with the average speed around 8-10mph and gust speeds could be around 25-30mph. The wind will be deriving from a SSW-WSW direction.
Looking ahead towards the weekend the synoptic charts are suggesting that there will be a movement in the wind position from the S towards the N. This will mean that the air temperature will reduce (particularly overnight).
Summary: A very mild day but with a high risk of some rain (particularly later).
