WS7 weather report for Hammerwich, Lichfield, Burntwood, Brownhills and surrounding areas (30 April 2011).

Observations made 07:32 hours Hammerwich, South Staffordshire.

Air  pressure : 1013.2mb

Temperature : 8.8c

Wind : 4mph NE

Relative humidity : 78%

Rain this month : 3.4mm

Forecast for today.

Firstly, can I take this opportunity to wish @JTDP23 (Hawksie) all the very best at his 2pm wedding today.

Hawksie and all of us will enjoy a bright day today after the early morning cloud is burnt away.  This will take until around mid morning.  After this we will see plenty of bright sunshine and a clear sky.

Top temperatures will reach around 17-18c, however, the only negative will be the fairly constant NE breze which, at times, may be quite blustery.  The average wind speed will be around 12-15mph with gusts reaching twice that speed.

Overnight, with the lack of cloud cover the temperature will fall to around 5-6c.  Again, care needs to be taken with young or tender plants.

A noticeable feature of the month has been the small amount of rain that has fallen.  In Hammerwich I have only measured 3.4mm which is a fraction of what we should expect for this time of year (around  50mm).


Mostly dry and bright after a cloudy start.
