Blustery southwest winds will give temperatures a boost today.
A south wind picked up overnight and will increase further this morning as it turns to the southwest. By the midday and afternoon, wind speeds will be just over 10 mph with gusts as high as 30 mph.
The wind will combine with ample sunshine this morning and a mix of sun and fair weather clouds this afternoon to allow the atmosphere to heat up significantly.
