Today see at least two major outdoor events in our region and along with all of the other regular weekend outdoor activities we are all looking towards the sky to see what weather we have in store.
(For more information about the Bloxwich event follow this link to the Bloxwich Telegraph site – Bloxwich Music Festival. The Blondie concert at Cannock Chase is sold out).
The good news is that the rain we encountered yesterday has passed our area by and the risk of rain in our area today is less than 10%. There will still be a good cloud cover but this will fragment from time to time to allow some bright spells.
A band of high pressure is sitting over our area at the moment and the jet stream will be running across the UK from W to E as the day passes. This, typically, will bring more mild but occasionally cloudy weather.
The top temperature today will reach around 18c and overnight the low will be around 13c. If you are going to the Blondie concert tonight at Cannock Chase the temperature around 21:00 hours will be around 14-15c.
The wind will be blowing from the WNW – W at an average speed of around 6-7mph.
Looking ahead to tomorrow – I think that we can make plans for a nice day outside either riding, walking or gardening. The high pressure will remain with us and we will see more sunshine!
A generally dry day across our area with some brighter spells.
