It is another mild start to this autumn day but there was a brisk breeze blowing when I made my observations this morning. As the breeze was deriving from the warmer SE-SW it was also very mild at 06:30 hours with the air temperature nearly 14c. This is nearly twice as warm as the corresponding day and time last year.
Today will remain a breezy day with the wind continuing to derive from the SE-SW. The average wind speed will be around 14mph but gust speeds could push into the 30s. The strong breeze will not really die down until Sunday.
Today’s top temperature will be around 18c. Overnight the minimum temperature will also remain very mild at around 16-17c.
The radar images show that there is a high risk of rain in our area throughout the day today. Whilst the rain may often only be light the images do show so denser and, therefore, heavier periods of rain. The risk of some rain today is 95%. The further west you travel in the UK today the heavier the rain is likely to be.
Summary for today : A breezy but mild day. A high risk of some rain.
