Today sees us with a mild start to the day with the air temperature at 06:53 hours near to 5c. Looking back through my records it is interesting to see the wide variation of temperature we have encountered, over the years, on the 13 January. In 2011 the air temperature was 11.1c at 06:27 hours whilst in 2013 the thermometer was reading -1.3c almost two hours later in the day.
Today will be a dry day with only an 11% risk of rain. We will, however, see plenty of cloud cover with just the odd brighter spell.
Our top temperature today will be around 6-7c and overnight the minimum will be around 2c.
The air pressure will continue to reduce slowly but it will still remain high enough to block a low pressure system, that will bring rain to Wales, from generally reaching our area.
Tomorrow currently appears to be equally mild but Monday’s synoptic chart shows a highly developed low pressure system moving into our area from the N. This is likely to bring stronger wind speeds and rain to our area.
Today’s breeze will be generally light at around 6mph. The wind will be deriving mostly from a SE direction.
Summary: Mild day with plenty of cloud but only a low risk of rain.
