Despite the thermometer reading 6.4c when I made my observations at 06:30 hours this morning it did feel a little chilly when I stepped out to make my observations.
The chill is due to the low pressure system, that hit northern Scotland yesterday, moving eastwards into europe. This, in turn, has helped changed the wind direction across the UK to a more northerly derivation.
The good thing about more northerly wind directions is that there tends to be less cloud associated with it. We will see some brighter spells develop today but our top temperature will only be around 7c. This, however, is far in excess of the day same day last year when our top temperature was only 2.3c at around 21:00 hours. Our overnight minimum temperature tonight will be around 2c. The risk of any rain today is 9%.
As I have previously indicated the breeze today will be deriving from the NW-N and the average wind speed will be around 8mph.
Summary : Aday with some bright spells but feeling cool with a NW breeze.
