As I write this blog, at approximately 06:30 hours, steady rain is falling in our area. The radar images show, however, that we are only on the edge of the rain cloud system and this first rain system will clear our area around 09:30 hours.
There will, however, be a further risk of rain during the early evening (65% risk).
It will be a mild day with a top temperature of 12c. Overnight, however, we will see some significant changes with the air temperature falling to around 0c. This low air temperature will help will form icy patches and tomorrow we are also 75% likely of seeing some snow falling. The accumulation, at this moment in time, appears to only be light (between 3 and 6mm) but I will have a better picture tomorrow.
Today’s wind will start off from the NE/ENE but will switch towards the SW mid morning. During the early evening we will see the wind return to a ENE derivation which will bring with it some cool air temperatures. The average wind speed today will be around 7-8mph.
Summary: Early rain leading to a mild morning before more rain then freezing temperatures reach us overnight.
