At 06:23 hours this morning the air temperature was at the lowest measurement since midnight and, yet, it was still a very mild and humid 17.9c! This is the warmest start we have to a day since 2 August 2018.
The day starts off with plenty of cloud cover and whilst this may bring some dampness to the air the risk of any measurable rain today is only around 15%. Some bright spells will, however, develop later.
It will be a warm day with a top temperature of around 23c and overnight the minimum temperature will only reduce to around 16-17c.
Today’s breeze will remain light throughout most of the day as we will see very little change in the surface air pressure. The average wind speed will be around 5-6mph. The wind will be deriving from a generally westerly direction.
Currently the jet stream is sitting above the UK but over the next couple of days it will begin “riding” across the UK. This will bring some cooler weather. The picture will improve, however, for the Bank Holiday weekend and, in particular, on Sunday and Monday.
Summary : A cloudy start but some bright spells later.
