Christmas Eve weather in WS land.

If you are travelling to work or getting out early to do that last minute Christmas shopping you will be met with some mild temperatures but also rain showers.

Rain showers will be with us for much of the day today and certainly the risk will not subside until around 21:00 hours.  Generally the rain will be light but the occasional heavy spell could be mixed in.

Our top temperature today will be around 7c and overnight the low will fall to around 5c.  This is very mild for the time of year.  Last year the daytime temperature was around 4.5c and overnight the minimum temperature fell to 2.8c.

The breeze will be bringing mild air from the SW as the jet stream “dips” S on its journey W to E before reaching the UK.  This means that warm air is being carried across the UK from the S.  This brings mild temperatures but inclement weather.  The average wind speed will be around 5mph.

Summary.

Mild temperatures but rain showers too.

Observations made at 06:39 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Air pressure : 999.7mb, Temperature : 6.7c, Wind : 1.6 mph SSW, Relative humidity: 95%, Rain since 00:01 hours : 0.2mm, Rain this month 90.4mm.
