It was a very mild but breezy start to the day when I made my observations at approximately 08:00 hours this morning. The air temperature, at the time of my observations, was a very mild 18c. This was twice the aire temperature at a similar point in 2016 but only a couple of degrees warmer than last year. Last year we were also going through a breezy period.
The synoptic charts show that the breeze will remain steady for the remainder of today and into tomorrow. We will, however see the points of similar air pressure widen during Sunday and, as a consequence, the wind speed will reduce.
The rain radar images show plenty of rain cloud to the west of our area and we just catch the eastern edge of that system. We are, therefore, 90% likely to see some rain today. The accumulation will, however, only be light. Later this morning it is possible that the sun will break through from time to time to brighten up the day.
Today’s top temperature will be around 22c and overnight we will see a slight cooling down to around 14c. During the daylight hours of tomorrow we will, in fact, see a further reduction in the air temperature to around 11c by mid afternoon.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from a SE/SW arc. The average wind speed will be around 10mph with gusts speeds up to 30mph.
Summary for today : A breezy day with a risk of some sporadic showers. Some brighter spells too.
