May wetter than average

The early morning precipitation has deposited 4mm of rain in our are and we are likely to see a little more rain fall before the morning is out.  The radar images are showing that our area sees less rain cloud than other parts of the Midlands but there is a further risk of some showers particularly around 10:00-11:00 hours.

May has seen around 20% more rain than average for our area.  (Average around 50mm).

After midday the risk of rain diminishes significantly (around 35%) and we may even see a few brighter spells.   Our top temperature today will be around 14c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around  6c.

The wind will be deriving from the SSW-SW this morning as it mimics the path of the Jet Stream.  As the day passes we will see the wind derivation move a few degrees clockwise to spend a lot of the day deriving from the W.  The average wind speed today will be around 10mph.

Looking ahead:- The radar images are showing that further rain will move into our area tomorrow afternoon and Tuesday.  The air pressure charts show an increase in air pressure this afternoon (hence the dry spell) before reducing again.  This fall in air pressure will bring further rain tomorrow.  At times the lines of air pressure on Monday and Tuesday will be fairly close together which means we will feel some gusty winds.

Summary. Rain clearing to leave a more dry afternoon and evening.
