For the first time this year we have and will receive some measurable rainfall. it will only amount to 1-2mm by the end of the day but, even so, it is significant.
It is also going to be a very mild day with a top temperature of around 10c and an overnight minimum temperature of around 8c. This day last year our top temperature was 6.5c (achieved around 13:30 hours) and the minimum overnight temperature (04:00 hours) was 4.8c.
In the main the day will be generally dry, often cloudy with some occasional light rain.
The mild air will be delivered by a W breeze. The average wind speed will be around 7-10mph. There is a clear sign from the barometer that the air pressure is reducing and any changes in the air pressure means that a breeze will develop.
Summary : A mild day with some light showers along the way.
