Chief Forecaster's Commentary

Bright or sunny intervals today, but with cloud thick enough at times to give some showers, especially late morning. North-Easterly winds will make it feel cool near the Essex Coast.

High confidence of a low pressure system brushing close to the Kent Coast on Sunday morning, this will bring 10-15mm of rainfall to all parts of Essex accompanied by strengthening winds. No significant impacts are expected locally and no warnings have been issued by the Met Office or Environment Agency.
