Today will start off with some rain showers and the risk of further precipitation (around 60%) will remain with us throughout the morning and into the early afternoon. The only good news is that with the rain clouds also comes a very slight increase in air temperature from that we encountered last night. In between the rain showers we will see the odd brighter spell.
At 22:00 hours last night the air temperature in Hammerwich was -0.6c, however, the rain and clouds have helped the temperature increase to 5.2c by the time of observations. The likelihood is that our top temperature will not be much more than this early figure today and we should only expect to see the thermometer reach around 6c. Overnight the temperature will not drop too significantly and the low will be around 3c. With the wind chill today’s top temperature will feel at least 2-3c lower than the thermometer is reading.
The air pressure is falling and the isobars are tightly packed this indicates that it will be quite a breezy day today. The average wind speed will be around 10mph with gusts up to 25mph. The wind will start off from the SW-WSW and end the day deriving from the NW.
Cold and wet with some brighter spells later.
