How is Ivor this week? I'm wondering if he is likely to be blowing at 4pm today for an after work session. Missing the weather

Maybe, although he is usually an early morning phenomenon as he is powered by relatively cold air in the hills sinking down into the
valley and being sucked out through the estuary by the relatively warm air above the sea - the opposite of a sea breeze really but with
the added benefit of gravity... He was certainly blowing this morning.
If anything, the warm temperatures forecast for this afternoon may negate the easterly wind forecast as a sea breeze may well develop
which will be from the NW and will therefore counteract the Easterly wind in the late afternoon.
If you want to get Ivor at his best you need to be there early in the morning, whereas NW sea breezes tend to develop for a couple of
hours from 3pm-5pm if it gets warm enough.
