Cy­clists likely to ex­pe­ri­ence mixed weather on the course

The Courier & Advertiser (Dundee Edition) - - NEWS -

Cy­clists are in for a mixed bag come to­mor­row, with the dry morn­ing con­di­tions making way for wind and rain later in the day.

The Met Of­fice said that “thick cloud” would move in late in the af­ter­noon, which could bring some rain. A heavy down­pour could also hit in the evening.

Spokesman Gra­ham Madge said it may also be “quite breezy” on parts of the route, with gusts of up to 20mph.

He added: “At the mo­ment Sun­day morn­ing for that part is look­ing as though it is go­ing to start off rea­son­ably dry and clear, by lunch time there will be rain com­ing in.

“Morn­ing looks as though it is go­ing to be cloudy with maybe the odd break in that cloud, peo­ple may see a bit of sun dur­ing the morn­ing.

“Re­ally by lunch time you might start to ex­pe­ri­ence some rain and dur­ing the af­ter­noon the cloud thick­ens, then there will be heavy rain about tea time.

“There is an in­creas­ing chance of rain, mostly light rain at lunch time and then the cloud is be­com­ing thicker and more ex­ten­sive.

“It will be quite breezy. The wind is com­ing from the south, with gusts of per­haps 16mph-20mph. In terms of tem­per­a­tures, there will be highs of 13-14C.”
