Walk the Wight
The conditions will be almost perfect for the annual Walk the Wight event with fairly cool temperatures and long sunny spells. By late morning/early afternoon there will be some patchy cloud developing towards central and western parts of the island and even though there is a very small risk of a light shower, most places will remain dry. The wind will be blowing from the eastern quadrant for most of the day which means there will be no battling against the wind over the tops of the more exposed hillier areas due to the wind often blowing the same direction of travel.
The sun will be fairly strong however so make sure you have plenty of UV protection!
