As I made these observations at daybreak the air temperature was very similar to the same time and day last year at around 3.4c.
It is going to be another pleasant day with a top temperature of around 11c and, during the morning, very little breeze. As the afternoon and evening passes the wind speed and cloud cover will increase a little as a low pressure system from the W moves towards our area.
The air pressure will reduce from nearly 1017mb this morning to around 1008mb by midnight. A further reduction to around 1004mb will take place in the small hours.
The risk of rain today is only around 10% during the daylight hours and around 20% after dark. After midnight (and through the early hours of tomorrow) the risk of rain is around 90%.
Today will be the be the best day of the week so if you need to finish off any of those jobs outside then today will be the best day to tackle them as we can expect some rain on most of the week days remaining. As the headline said the weather is all downhill from here.
Today’s wind speed will be around 2mph this morning increasing to around 6-7mph by the end of the day. The wind will be deriving mostly from the WSW.
Summary: A bright morning becoming cloudier as the day passes.
