Rain dance!

As I write this post (at approximately 06:30 hours) gentle rain is falling.  So far today around 2mm of rain has fallen in our area and this adds to the 1mm that fell last night.  This will hardly help fill up Chasewater but I am sure it is a welcome “stranger” to our farmers, allotment owners and gardeners.

The radar images are showing that the current band of rain will pass through our area early this morning but it will be followed by a smaller system that is currently sitting around the Liverpool area.  This second system will bring a 70% chance of a rain shower around 08:30-09:00 hours.

From mid morning we will see the risk of rain reduce and although their is a chance of a brief localised shower the risk is only around 15%.

The remainder of the day will be a mixture of being partly cloudy, a little breezy at times and also with some brighter spells.  Our top temperature will be around 16c and overnight the low will be around 8c.  There will be some clear spells overnight.

The wind will be deriving from the WSW this morning but will be moving clockwise as the day passes towards the NW.  The average wind speed will be around 8mph with gusts up to 20mph.

Summary.  Rain clearing to leave an occasionally bright and breezy day.
