It is brightish start to the day in our area but the air temperature is low at only 3.4c. Thankfully this will rise to a maximum of 10c by mid to late afternoon. The air temperature is still well below what we would expect for this time of year.
The wind will be deriving from the WNW and will be light with the average speed only around 5-6mph. This means that we will be getting almost full value from the air temperature.
Looking forward a little there is nothing on the models to suggest a dramatic change in this pattern.
As the day passes there is the risk of localised rain in our area. Any rain that does fall will be light and short lived.
Today’s air pollutant and pollen count levels are both low.
Rather typically for a Bank Holiday Monday I cannot promise you anything good weather wise today unless you like to watch rain falling.!
Some rain has already fallen in the Hammerwich area and the satellite and radar images show that further rain cloud systems will reach our area before 09:00 hours. Some of these early systems are quite light and may simply blow by but, as the day passes, the rain will become more persistent and widespread in our area. Some of the rain this afternoon and during the evening will be moderate to heavy.
As the day passes the air pressure will reduce to below 1000mb.
It will be a breezy day with the S/SSW breeze reaching speeds of 35mph with the average speed around 8mph.
Our top temperature will be around 9c but this will feel more like 7C in the wind chill.
Today’s pollutant and pollen count levels, due to the rain and breeze, are both ranked as low (2/10).
It is a noticeably chilly start but still partially bright in our area. The further South to travel into Birmingham and Solihull the more likely it is you will come across some precipitation.
For us there is a 30% risk of rain in our area during the day but, in the main, it will be overcast with some cloud fragmentation allowing brighter spells to develop.
The maximum air temperature will be around 9-11c which is 5-6c degrees lower than average for this time of year. The wind chill will make the “feel” of the air temperature around 2c lower than the actual thermometer reading.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the NNW/NNE and the average wind speed will be around 5mph.
The air pollutant level is low and the tree pollen count is low. Grass and weed / flower pollen is low.
