It is a bright start to the day, however, if you are going for a walk in the park you may still find it a little damp under foot following yesterday’s rain (around 12mm) and this morning’s dew.
So far, this month, we have received 40mm of rain in our area which is not dissimilar to the same point last year (41mm) and 2016 (39mm).
This morning will start of bright but cooler than of late. The last time we had a similar early morning air temperature (around the 9.5c mark at around 06:30 hours) was on the 21 June 2018.
Today’s top temperature will be around 16c and overnight the minimum air temperature will reduce to around 10c.
The synoptic chart (and then rain radar images) show that the air pressure, in our area, is leading a low pressure front. This low pressure system is 20% likely to bring some isolated showers this morning but the risk of rain will increase to around 60-65% during the afternoon and early evening. The rain this afternoon / evening is more likely to be wide spread.
Today’s breeze will be brisk at times with the WSW derived breeze blowing at around 7mph.
Over the weekend rain looks most likely on Sunday afternoon with both Saturday and Monday seeing some bright and dry spells.
Summary : A bright but cool start with an increasing risk of rain as the afternoon passes.
