The minimum air temperature overnight was -1.5c at 03:54 hours and at the time of my observations (approximately 06:30 hours) the air temperature had climbed all of the way up to -0.4c.
It will, therefore, be a chilly journey in to work or school today and care should be taken on pavements or side roads as there may be some icy patches about.
As the day passes we do see the risk of some rain develop. The risk is particularly at its highest point around mid to late afternoon until early evening. (from around 14:30 onward). It is unlikely to rain throughout this period but the risk of some rain during this time is around 70%.
The cloud will, however, help the day warm up a little. Our top temperature will be around 4c. Overnight will stay just in positive numbers at around 2c.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SE. As the day passes the wind speed will increase. Our average wind speed will be around 3-4mph during the morning increasing to around 8mph (with gusts of around 20mph) by mid evening.
Summary : A cold start to the day with the risk of rain increasing during the afternoon / early evening.
