As I discussed in yesterday’s bulletin a low pressure system is currently working towards us from the West. This system will bring rain to all parts of our region today.
We can expect to see rain showers anytime from late drive time to late afternoon (not continually). In between the showers the cloud may fragment enough to allow for some brighter spells. Once the risk of rain is totally clear (around 18:00) we will see some bright and clear spells until sunset. These clear spells should mean that our astronomers can make some observations tonight.
Our top temperature today will be around 17c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 12c.
Winds will be blowing from the SW and whilst the threat of rain is with us they will be a gusty at times. The average wind speed will be around 8mph with gusts up to 20mph.
Risk of rain during most of the daytime but clear later.
Observations made at 06:32 hours in Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Air pressure : 1008.9mb; Temperature : 14.8c; Wind : 2MPH SW; Relative humidity : 87%; Rain last 24 hours : 0mm.
