It is a very cloudy / overcast start to the day and this will bring a slight risk of some early light drizzle. The risk, however, is only around 10%.
As the day passes the air pressure will increase from around 1013.5mb this morning to just over 1020mb by the end of the day. This movement in air pressure will help generate a bit of the breeze as the day passes. It will also help lift the cloud and we are likely to see some brighter spells develop as the day passes.
Our top temperature today will be around 18c and overnight, with less of a cloud blanket to keep the warmth in, the minimum temperature will be around the 10c mark.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from a W-NW arc. The average wind speed will be around 6mph with gusts of around 12-15mph.
Today sees the beginning of a period of warmer and generally dry weather. The GFS Ensemble is suggesting that this milder and generally dry weather could last well into September. Much can change with forecasts greater than a week but, I am happy to suggest, it is likely to be generally mild and dry for a least the remainder of this week. I will update the longer term position as we go along.
