The air temperature, at the time of my observations, was already into double figures (11.3c at 06:23 hours). In fact the temperature had not been below 11c since midnight.
The maximum temperature will, however, only be a degree or two higher than this high starting point. Today’s maximum temperature will be around 13c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 8c.
In general it will be a cloudy day with just the odd brighter spell. The cloud will be formed by the W-NW breeze that will be blowing across our area today. The good new, however, is that despite the cloud the risk of any rain is only around 7%. The further you travel towards mid Wales the more likely that you will see some brighter spells.
Today’s breeze will be lively at times with the average wind speed around 8-10mph. The wind will be deriving from a mainly WNW-NW direction. At 10mph the breeze will reduce the ‘feel’ of the actual air temperature by around 2c.
Summary for today : A mild but cloudy day with a cooling NW breeze.
