It was quite breezy during the early hours of this morning. My weather station recorded a wind speed of 21mph (force 5) at 02:34 hours.
This morning will also see a “lively” SW breeze blowing and the synoptic charts clearly show that the wind direction will gradually move towards the NW as the day passes. The average wind speed today will be around 10mph. There is only around a 12% risk of rain today and this will be at the highest risk during the period when the wind will be bringing slightly denser cloud cover from the W (mid afternoon).
It will be a partly cloudy day with a top temperature of around 19c. Overnight will be little cooler than last night with the minimum around 11c. Last night’s minimum air temperature was around 16c.
Looking slightly ahead the jet stream (as we discussed on Sunday) is still forecast to be moving above the UK which, in turn, will create a high pressure block over the UK. This means we will see plenty of bright spells over the weekend and possibly elevated air temperatures from Monday onward (24-25c).
Summary: A breezy day but with some bright spells too. Remaining dry.
