It is an extremely overcast start to the day today. So much so that I have even had to put the light on whilst I type this daily blog!
The air temperature, due to the warming effect of tropical Storm Ernesto joining our jet stream, was a very mild 17.5c at 08:03 hours.. The overnight minimum air temperature was 17.1c around daybreak.
Today’s top temperature will reach around 21c and overnight tonight the minimum air temperature will be around 16c.
The rain radar images show that the north of England and Scotland will be receiving some very heavy rain today but we are only 35% likely to catch a light shower around 10:15 hours.
It will be a breezy day with the SW-WSW breeze reaching an average wind speed of around 10mph. Gusts speeds will be around 20mph.
Looking ahead the synoptic charts show that whilst the air pressure will continue to be generally high (and, therefore, we will see more generally dry weather). The points of similar pressure are quite tightly packed during the week. This suggests that we are also set for a few breezy days ahead.
Summary : A cloudy start with a risk of some light rain (35%) this morning. Remaining mild.
