GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

A warm sector has been introduced across England and Wales and whilst this feature will tend to slip southwards, it will make for quite a contrast in the weather today – exceptionally mild in the south and much colder further north.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

It is a noticeably milder start to the day across the county this morning with temperatures already in double figures in many places. Whilst there will be some brighter spells, generally we are looking at a cloudy day, but it will stay dry. Temperatures today are expected to reach 14C, if not higher with a gentle to moderate west or north-westerly breeze. Overnght will be dry initially, but we are expecting some rain to work in from the west later. Lows will fall no lower than 9C.

OUTLOOK

Tomorrow will be unsettled with outbreaks of rain continuing through the morning. Much of this rain will be light, however, and should clear by early afternoon to leave the remainder of the day dry. There will be a freshening breeze from the north-west. Again, it will be a mild day with temperatures climbing to around 12C and falling no lower than 9C overnight. Wednesday will also see spells of rain moving through, one during the morning and the other during the evening. In between times we should see drier and brighter skies. Highs of 11C with the breeze easing to a gentle west or north-westerly. Overnight will be colder as we start to pull in air from the north. Lows will fall to 6C.
