It is another mild and bright start to the day with the air temperature at 07:30 hours above 14c. in 2016 and 2017 the air temperature was around the 7c mark at the same time of the day. In stark contrast in 2010 we were waking up to a very cool day with the air temperature around freezing point.
Today’s top temperature will be a little lower than the last couple of days at around 16-17c. Overnight the minimum air temperature will be around 8c.
The rain radar images are showing that there is a band of rain that will reach our area around 10:30 hours and this system will bring a 60% risk od some precipitation until around lunchtime (not continuous).
To support the idea that there is a risk of rain is that, at the time of my observations, the air pressure was slowly reducing in value. Any rain that does fall is likely to be light and warm (like yesterday). There is a possibility of some thunder but this is difficult to predict with any certainty.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the S-WSW arc and the average wind speed will be around 8mph.
Finally, for hay fever sufferers the pollen count is currently high. My brother, Gary, swears that the best cure is to regularly drink Guinness. I don’t know if this is a medically proven fact but if anyone is willing to sponsor his activity I am sure he will be willing to continue his research!
Summary: A bright start. A risk of some rain mid morning before brightening again later.
