The Met Office says the weather will be mostly dry today for the Queen's Baton Relay in Angus and Montrose

Meteorologists from the Met Office are forecasting a mostly dry and sunny day as the Glasgow 2014 XX Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay arrives in Angus and Montrose today (Saturday, June 28).

They predict today should be a mainly dry day with sunny spells but a chilly wind means temperatures are only likely to reach around 14°C.

Met Office chief meteorologist Frank Saunders said: “It should be quite a good day for anyone taking part in, or watching the baton’s progress, with occasional sunshine although there is the chance of an odd light shower and it will feel cool with temperatures remaining in the low to mid teens.”

Visit the Met Office’s dedicated Queen’s Baton Relay Route page for local forecasts available for locations along its route.

Forecasts for the Queen’s Baton Relay are available our the Met Office’s website. as well as on mobile phones and on our iPhone and Android Apps, so you are never far from a local, detailed weather forecast.

Forecasts for Glasgow 2014 will be available as the Games draw closer to help event organisers, competing athletes and visitors and spectators alike to be prepared – whatever the weather.
