It is a cloudy but dry start to the day with the air temperature at 06:35 hours a mild 15.8c. Overnight the minimum temperature was a mild 15.5c. These measurements are not too dissimilar to those we enjoyed over the last two years.
At the time of my observations the barometer was displaying a steady reading suggesting that there would be very little change in the weather pattern.
The day will be generally overcast wit the odd brighter spells to cheer things up. The highest risk of rain, however, will be no greater than 40% (around mid to late afternoon) and for the remainder the risk will be around 10%.
Today’s top temperature will be around 21c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 14c.
The breeze today will be deriving from a W-NW arc and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.
A look at the jet stream images show that the “stream” will be deriving from the NW before running, predominantly, across parts of the UK for at least the next seven days. This suggests that we be seeing plenty of overcast or partly cloudy days but the days should be generally dry and mild.
Summary : A generally cloudy / partly cloudy day but mostly dry. A 40% risk of some rain particularly later in the afternoon.
