Observations made 07:30 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire
Air pressure : 988mb
Temperature : -2.7c
Wind : light SE (Less than 1Kmh)
Relative humidity : 97%
Forecast : Today will remain cold with a top temperature not exceeding freezing point and it will more than likely remain at around -2c. Care, therefore, needs to be taken on all roads and paths as icy conditions will be predominant.
Radar images show a large snow cloud covering our area until around noon. Currently the darkest park of the image (the cloud with most density) appears to be in our area between 09:30 and 10:00. We can, however, expect light snow at any time during the morning.
During the afternoon we may see a little more brightness, however, it will still remain bitterly cold with the wind possibly moving from a South East to a Easterly direction.
Overnight temperatures will remain below freezing and care should be taken if you are out celebrating the festive season.
Yesterday the Met office issued a warning that high-heeled shoes would be unsuitable for walking on the icy paths. I think, I will just let commonsense prevail!
Whilst the snow and icy conditions remain I will try to keep updates flowing via twitter throughout the day. (@WS7weather).
