After a generally pleasant weekend we today (St George’s Day) see the jet stream moving towards a more west to east running position across the UK.
This revisedpositioning of the “stream” means that we are likely to see average temperatures for the time of year, more cloud and a higher risk of rain.
Today, however, will start of bright and we will see further bright spells during the day through a partly fragmented cloud bed. As the day passes the cloud bed will thicken, the air pressure will reduce towards 1012mb and a band of rain will move towards our area. There is a 60% risk of some rain for our area either late tonight or overnight. The risk of rain during daylight hours is only around 10%.
The risk of some rain tomorrow is very high (around 80%).
Our top temperature today will be around 13-14c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 8c.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from a SW-WSW arc. The average wind speed will be around 8mph.
Pollen count is high again for today.
Summary: A bright start becoming cloudier as the day passes. Some rain possible late tonight.
