WS7 weather report for the Hammerwich, Burntwood, Brownhills, Lichfield and Walsall areas. 8 March 2021.
As we discussed yesterday the jet stream is beginning to move position and by mid week it will be running laterally across the UK from W to E. This change will bring with it low air pressure, some strong winds and rain.
Today, however, is only the beginning of the process.
It will be a partly cloudy day with a top temperature of around 8c. This will feel more like 5c in the WSW – W breeze.
The average wind speed will be around 3-4mph.
The radar images are showing some light rain clouds (see image below) moving through our area around 10:30 – 11:00 hours but the likelihood is that they will simply pass through the area. The chance of any rainfall today is 30-35%.
With the light wind today’s air quality is moderate. Our friends with breathing difficulties should moderate their levels of activity.
