WS7 weather report for Hammerwich, Lichfield, Burntwood, Brownhills, Bloxwich and all surrounding areas (16 July 2011).

Observations made 07:35 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Air pressure : 999.3mb falling

Temperature : 13.6c

Wind : 1mph SSW

Relative humidity : 89%

Rain since 00:01 hours : 2.6mm

Forecast for today.

Low pressure (see pressure chart) is now beginning to dominate our area and the jet stream is dictating a west to east weather pattern we are, therefore, in for a spell of damp and cloudy weather.

If you look at the pressure chart closely you will also see that during Saturday the isobars begin to tighten and this indicates an increase of wind speed during the day.

Currently the rain radar images show light showers moving in bands across our region.  We can, therefore, expect some rain or drizzle at times throughout the day.

In between the light showers will be the opportunity for some brighter spells and these will help increase the daytime temperature to around 19c.  Overnight the low will only fall to around 12c. 

As I indicated earlier the wind speed will pick up a little as the day passes and also the direction will move from the current position of SSW (at 07:35 hours) to one form a more Westerly direction.

Not a great day for being in the garden but a good day for the garden and farms water wise.


Intermittent showers with some occasional brightness.
