A slightly improving picture

For yet another day the jet stream is sitting firmly below the UK but before it makes its journey beyond the south coast it is bringing with some cool winds from the NW.   (To see the image follow this link).

The barometer is showing that the air pressure is currently low at around 982mb but is rising rapidly.  This indicates that we are in for an improving picture.  This “improvement” is all relative though.  An improvement in this sense means that we will see a reduced risk of precipitation as the day passes but the breeze may increase slightly.  In essence dry but breezy.

The light rain that we have been encountering this morning will generally clear our area by 11:00 hours and we be left with a partly cloudy but breezy afternoon.  The wind will remain brisk and cool.  Our top temperature today will be around 4c and overnight the low be around freezing point.

The wind will be deriving throughout the day from the NW -NNW and the average wind speed will be around 9mph.  Gust speeds will be around 25mph.

For those of you that are missing the snow have a look at Brownhills Bob’s increasingly snowy ride home on during the week.

Summary.   A cool  and breezy day but with a reduced risk of precipitation as the day passes.
