It was a cool and clear start to the day at 06:32 hours (the time of my observations) this morning. Some late night and early rain had fallen in our area but this first rain band had now cleared.
The morning will see some bright spells but, as the afternoon develops, rain and sleet is likely to fall (70% risk). By mid afternoon the risk of some snow falling on its own is around 55%. The current forecast of the conditions at 1.5km above the earth are close to but not perfect for the production of persistent snow fall. This 55% snow risk will remain until around 21:00 hours.
During the day our top temperature will be around 4c and overnight we will see the thermometer read a minimum of around -1c.
Today’s wind will be deriving from a WSW-WNW arc and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.
Finally, can I take this opportunity to wish the many of you that took the trouble of sending me 60th birthday wishes yesterday. You are very kind.
