The overnight / early morning precipitation has certainly left its mark with around 7mm of rain being deposited in our area by 06:30 hours. The good news (from looking at the rain radar image) is that the main body of the system will have travelled beyond our area by around 08:30 – 09:00 hours.
Until this time the risk of rain will remain high at around 90%. Beyond 10:00 hours the risk of rain diminishes to less that 10%. The cloud cover will generally remain with us throughout the day although we will also see some occasional brighter spells break through too.
It will be a cool day with a top temperature of only 20c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 12c.
The surface air pressure will increase from around 1009mb to 1017mb as the day passes. This does, however, mean that we will feel a steady breeze blowing for the majority of the daylight hours. The average wind speed will be around 8-9mph with gust speeds of around 15-20mph.
Summary : A damp start but clearing during the first part of the day to leave a partly cloudy and occasionally bright day. Slightly cooler than of late.
