Occluded front brings cloud today.



A low pressure system is currently working its way across the UK from W to E and this usually means we will see some cloud and possibly precipitation.  These conditions are created by, what is known as, an “occluded front”.

Looking, however, more closely at the available imagery shows that whilst we will see some cloud cover we will also have some bright spells at times too.  These brighter spells will help lift our top temperature up to a maximum of around 21c.  This is about average for the time of year. Overnight we will remain warm with minimum temperature reaching 14c. (Last night 14.3c at 05:39 hours).

Whilst a risk of rain does exist I would not put this possibility at greater than 25%.  Any rain that did fall would be short lived.

Winds will be from the warm S (you may have noticed he warm breeze yesterday) and will blow at an average speed of around 5mph.  You will note that with weather front moving W to E and the lower wind coming from the S we have perfect conditions for changeable weather (Cross wind theory).


Warm but with some cloud and possibly an odd localised shower too.

Observations made at 06:23 hours in  Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Air pressure : 1008.5mb; Temperature : 14.7c; Wind : Calm S; Relative humidity : 96%; Rain last 24 hours : 0.2mm.
