After yesterday’s period of heavy rain it is pleasing to open the curtains this morning and see the sun shining through.
The day will not be 100% sunshine, however, as the radar images are showing a band of thin rain cloud heading our way from the SW and during the morning we can expect the cloud bed to generally thicken. There will, however, still be some bright interludes throughout much of the daylight hours through, at times, a partly fragmented cloud bed.
There is a small risk of some drizzly showers between 11:00 hours and 13:00 hours. The good news is that the risk is only around 35-40%. Any shower we do receive is unlikely to turn out to be like the heavy rain we received late yesterday afternoon / early evening (around 9mm). Today’s rain (if it occurs) will only be light or drizzly in nature. Any risk of showers today should not prevent you planning to get out and about.
Our top temperature today will be around 20-21c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 13-14c. last night’s minimum temperature was 14.8c at 04:22 hours.
The wind will be deriving from the SSW-SW this morning before becoming more westerly as the day passes. The average wind speed will be around 5mph.
Just a quick reminder that we have two events taking place in our area again today.
They are the Lichfield Food Festival and at Pelsall North Common we have the Inland Water Association gathering – both have free entry.
Summary: A bright start to the day. Cloud will increase but we will still have some bright interludes. A small risk of some drizzly showers around lunchtime.
