It was a mild but overcast start to the day. The air temperature at 08:00 hours was around 9.5c. This is 4-5 degrees lower than the previous two years when we were enjoying some late summer sunshine.
Today will be generally overcast with a top temperature of around 12c. Overnight will see the thermometer reading a minimum temperature around 9c.
The radar images do show that we are likely to catch the edge of a rain cloud system in our area around lunchtime / early afternoon. This brings a risk of around 70% of some rain today.
Today’s wind will be light and the SW breeze will be blowing at an average speed of around 5mph.
Tomorrow sees widespread heavy rain across the south of England. The northern edge of the system may reach our area. Whilst the heaviest rain will be away from our area the Met Office have still issued a yellow warning for us too.
I will be able to give you a clearer indication of the likely impact when I review the system tracking tomorrow morning. It is suffice to say that great care should be taken if you are travelling to or from the south tomorrow.
.Summary for today : An overcast day with the risk of some rain early afternoon.
