Blue sky looking at me

Bright sunshine welcomes the day and it is certainly is a most pleasant outlook through the window this morning at 08:30 hours.

The rain radar images are, however, showing some rain cloud heading towards our patch.  Currently the greater risk of rain is to the E (Tamworth) and W of us (Stafford and Wolverhampton the SW).  The system will reach us around 11:00 hours and, hopefully, we will miss the rain but there is still around a 40% risk.

As the afternoon passes we will see the cloud cover increase from time to time and a we have a 35% chance of the odd localised shower.  In between we will see some bright spells too.  Our cricketers will get some play in today but the play may be interrupted occasionally with the odd rain shower.  Our top temperature today will be around 16-17c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 7c.

As the evening passes so will the clouds clear and our astronomers will be left with another opportunity this evening to make some observations.

The wind will be deriving from the W for the majority of the day.  The average wind speed will be around 6mph.  As the day passes into the evening the wind direction will move clockwise to derive from the WNW.

Looking at the jet stream over the next week shows the “streams” path becoming more W to E across the UK.  This will bring mild temperatures and the risk of precipitation from time to time.

Summary. A bright start to the day.  Risk of showers as the day passes.
