It is another overcast start to the day but the good news is that the barometer is steadily rising. By 21:00 hours we can expect the pressure reading to be around 1016mb.
This increase in air pressure will see a reduction in the risk of rain. Early this morning we may get the odd spell of drizzle (20%) but the risk of any real measurable rain today is only 10%. This is good news for all you that have plans to get out and about on this Bank Holiday Monday which is the last Bank Holiday before Christmas.
Our top temperature today will be around 18c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 12c. Last year’s Bank Holiday Monday (28th) was a very bright and sunny day with a top temperature of 25.1c.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SW and the average wind speed will be around 8mph. Gusts speeds could reach double that figure.
Looking ahead. By the 1st of September the jet stream will riding above the UK and this will mean that we will see a return to some bright and sunny weather in our area.
