GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

Frontal systems tracking across England and Wales will introduce outbreaks of rain this morning. Another injection of mild air will follow through overnight and into tomorrow as a deep low tracks towards Iceland maintaining the flow of warm southerly air.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

It is an exceptionally mild start to the day with temperatures already in double figures, remarkable given that we were beginning the morning with a sharp air frost just a few days ago. Although dry at the moment, we can expect some outbreaks of rain later this morning and continuing into the afternoon. However, much of this rain will be light and fairly patchy. The cloud and rain will prevent temperatures from climbing much higher than they are currently, probably reaching a high of 13C. The rain will have cleared by this evening with a largely dry night to follow, perhaps the odd spot or two light rain or drizzle for some areas. Lows will fall to 10C. Winds will be gentle to moderate and from the south-west, easing later in the day.

OUTLOOK

We should escape with a largely dry day through Friday, despite some heavy rain tracking across more northern parts of the country. It will again be cloudy for the most part, although we could see some spells of sunshine coming through during the afternoon. Temperatures will be similar to today, reaching 12C with a moderate breeze from the south-west. Lows will fall to 10C. Saturday still looks like being unsettled with outbreaks of rain continuing right through the day, light at first but turning heavier into the afternoon. It will be a cold front that will be introducing the rain and consequently Saturday will feel quite a bit colder with highs of just 8C. Winds will be falling light and veering westerly. Sunday by contrast will be fine and dry with some good spells of sunshine coming through.
