Today see the commencement of the last fortnight of summer. Summer ends on the 23 September 2018. So will we see any last-minute sunshine?
The answer is a little today before rain moves into the area on Tuesday. The risk of any rain today in our area is only 10%.
The good news is that much of the rest of the week will remain dry although the synoptic charts are showing a low pressure system moving towards our area on Sunday. I will discuss that situation, if it transpires, later in the week.
Today will be a partly cloudy day with the occasional brighter spell. To the north of us there is more likely to be some rain (due to lower surface pressure) and to the south finer / brighter weather is likely. Our top temperature will b around 18c (possibly 19c). There will only be a degree or two reduction in this value overnight as there will be plenty of cloud cover to help keep the heat in.
Today’s average wind speed will be around 6mph although gusts speeds could be around 15mph. The wind will be deriving fromthe mild SW for the majority of the day.
Summary for today : Overcast start to the day. Some bright spells developing later. Only a low (10%) risk of rain..
