Observations made 08:27 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Air pressure : 1010mb
Temperature : 10.9c
Wind speed : 7mph (SSW)
Relative humidity : 85%
Rain since 00:01 hours : 0mm
Forecast : I have had to expand the radar images almost to their full to get a better understanding of the likely outcome today.
A large rain belt is moving across the country from the SW and is just skirting our area at the moment although it is currently likely to be raining in the Shropshire area.
This morning, therefore, we should escape the rain and with gentle 8mph breeze (gusts of around 20mph) from the SW it could be a good time to get outside and get a few jobs done.
After noon the picture changes as we begin to fall into the rain belt and as the afternoon passes the likelihood of rain increases greatly. The radar images currently shows that some patches of rain could be heavy although it is too early to state this positively. I will, however, update later via twitter (@WS7weather).
Temperatures will remain high for the time of year at 10c and they will not fall below 5c overnight.
In summary : Mostly dry morning, rain possible this afternoon.
