After the rain yesterday and last night (8mm fell in our area) today will start off cloudy and with high humidity. This will make the air fell damp and, in parts, it will be misty.
For many today will be the day that they attend or hold their annual bonfire and fireworks display and here in Hammerwich the cricket club are planning their event for this evening. The team have worked very hard preparing the area and deserve every success they get. The weather will, however, play a part.
Around noon today rain will move into our area and will take until around 16:00 hours to clear. Thereafter we are likely to see the odd but diminishing light shower. The big issue for all people holding a bonfire or setting off fireworks will be the strengthening wind. Currently at around 08:45 hours the wind is merely a whisper but, as the day passes, the wind will increase in speed. By this evening the average wind speed will be around 20mph with gusts up to 35-40mph. The wind will be blowing from the W-WSW by evening. Great care and consideration should, therefore, be taken if you are planning a display tonight.
Our top temperature today will be around 10c and overnight the low will be around 5c.
Rain moving in but winds strengthening too.
