A summary of May 2019’s Weather

Firstly, can I thank all of you that have been in touch enquiring about my well being.

I have recently undergone some further treatment and surgery to help relieve and bi-pass some of my problems and I am slowly recovering at home.

In the meantime I thought you may like to see some weather statistics for May 2019.  Until I am back to full health I will  post these kind of updates for your review.

A message from Kevin – 10/2/2019.

As a number of you may know, following a Twitter post from my daughter Rosie, I have been rather ill recently.

This illness lead to me having a protracted stay hospital which included a period in intensive care. Fortunately I have very little memory of the first two or three days.

I am, thankfully, home now but it will take a few weeks before I am fully over the illness.

I, therefore, will not be creating any early morning weather forecasts for the near future.

It is my intent to eventually return to delivering a daily blog but, at this moment in time, I need to focus on my health. In the meantime I will post weather and other news as I feel well enough to do so.

Finally, can I thank you all for the kind thoughts you sent whilst I was in hospital. My family read them to me every day and they certainly gave me a boost.

Best wishes to you all,

Kevin x

Back to cool? (WS7 weather report 27-1-2019)

smalllogoAfter a very breezy and, at times, rainy early morning the air pressure is now (09:30 hours) beginning to increase towards 1004mb by the end of the day.

As this air pressure increase takes place there will still be some breeze generated but the spacing between the points of similar will broaden thus reducing the gust speeds.

It will be a cool day as the wind is deriving from a generally NW-NNW direction.  The average wind speed will be around 15mph.  This will make our top temperature of around 4c feel more like 0c.  If you are going for a walk or cycle today then you will need to wrap up warm.

During the day we will, however, see some bright spells develop and these, at least will brighten up the “picture”.

The risk of rain after 10:00 hours is only around 20%.

Summary : A breezy and cold day with some brighter spells developing.

Observations made 09:33 hours on the 27 January 2019 in Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Temperature : 3.9c; Air pressure : 992.7mb rising slowly; Relative humidity 85%; Wind: 6 mph WNW; Rain this month : 15.6mm; Rain this year : 15.6mm

Mild but what else weather wise? (WS7 weather report 26-1-2019)

smalllogoIt was a very mild but overcast start to the day with the air temperature at 09:00 hours at 7.6c.  In 2017 we were ‘enjoying’ below freezing point temperatures during the morning.

Today is going to be an overcast day with some breezy and rainy spells. At the time of my observations the air pressure was reducing rapidly which is a clear indication that these two events are likely.

Looking for further confirming evidence I can see that there are a number of rain cloud clusters heading our way and by mid afternoon we are 76% likely to have received some rain. Our top temperature today will be around 9.5 -10c. Overnight the minimum temperature will be a mild 6-7c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SSW and the average wind speed will be 10mph with gusts up to 25 mph. This wind speed will make 10c feel more like 5-6c due to the wind chill factor.

Summary : A generally cloudy but mild day with some rain likely.  Breezy too.

Observations made 06:28 hours on the 26 January 2019 in Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Temperature : 7.6c; Air pressure : 1004mb reducing rapidly; Relative humidity 90%; Wind: 10 mph SSW; Rain this month : 11.6mm; Rain this year : 11.6mm

All due to the jet stream (WS7 weather report 25-1-2019)

smalllogo

It was a relatively mild start to the day with the air temperature at 06:30 hours already at 7.4c.  The overnight low was 5.2c at midnight.  We have also had some overnight rain in or area early this morning.

This change in weather from the cold air temperatures over the last few days is all due to a change of position in the jet stream. The “stream” will be running across and down the UK today bringing milder air from the W and, along with it, a general cloud covering.

Our top temperature today will be around 10c and overnight the minimum temperature will be a mild 7c.  The risk of rain after 08:00 hours today is 25%.

Today’s breeze will generally be deriving from the W-WSW and the average wind speed will be around 7mph.

The jet stream will begin moving southwards late over the weekend and this will herald another spell of cool overnight temperatures next week.

Summary : A generally cloudy but mild day.

Observations made 06:28 hours on the 25 January 2019 in Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Temperature : 7.4c; Air pressure : 1011.9mb steady; Relative humidity 88%; Wind: 5 mph W; Rain this month : 11.6mm; Rain this year : 11.6mm

A little warmer (WS7 weather report 24-1-2019)

smalllogo

After yesterday’s quite cool day (or so it felt to me) today will be a little milder.

At the time of my 06:30 observations (approximately) light rain was falling.  The radar images show that some further light rain showers will arrive from the NW (maybe with even a bit of sleet) and will fall during the commute to work / school this morning.  The rain will, however, clear to leave a generally mild and dry day.  The risk of some light rain this morning is 90%.

Our top temperature today will be around 6c which is similar to this same day in 2017.  In 2018 our top temperature on this corresponding day reached 12.4c although it was extremely breezy. Our overnight minimum temperature tonight will be 4c.

Today the wind will be deriving from a WNW-WSW arc and the average wind speed will be around 5mph.  On this day last year we were on the receiving end of wind gust speeds of 40mph.

Summary : A slightly wet start but the rain cloud will pass during the early morning to allow the day to become generally dry and mild.

Observations made 06:27 hours on the 24 January 2019 in Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Temperature : 1.9c; Air pressure : 1008.8mb steady; Relative humidity 91%; Wind: 1 mph W; Rain this month : 10.6mm; Rain this year : 10.6mm
