This morning’s observations show that today was the coolest start (11.2c) since the 10th August 2018. This morning is, however, very similar, temperature wise, to the corresponding day in 2016 when the air temperature at 06:27 hours was 11.3c.
There will be some bright spells this morning but the cloud cover will increase as the day passes. The good news is, however, that the air pressure will remain high at around the 1017-1018mb mark. Coupling this with a review of the rain radar images leads me to suggest that the risk of rain today is no greater than 11%. The largest risk (when the cloud cover will be at its densest) is around 16:00 hours.
Today’s top temperature will be around 19-20c and overnight will be milder than last night at around a minimum of 15c.
It could be a little breezy at times. The average wind speed this morning will be around 5mph but this will increase to around 10mph as the day passes. Gust speeds could be around the 15-18mph mark.
Tomorrow looks as if it is set for a dry, cloudy but breezy day. Sunday will be a similar with (currently) a 35% risk of some rain during the early afternoon.
Summary : A generally dry day after a cool start. Warming up towards the 20c mark.
