Cyclists likely to experience mixed weather on the course
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.”
