Rain so far this year

We have another humid day ahead of us due to the jet stream that is running W to E across the UK which is creating the cloud cover but as jet stream is, in the main, slightly above our area the warmer winds from the south a mixing in and, thus, increasing the humidity below the cloud “roof”.

The clouds will also bring us a 40% risk of light rain today.  The highest risks of rain are at 09:00-10:00 hours and early afternoon.  The clouds will be at a medium to high height all day. We may see some fragmentation of the clouds this afternoon when the day is at warmest (around 15:00 hours) but, in the main, it will be a cloudy day.

Overall, this year, we have now had over 250mm of rain fall in our area (nearly 10 inches), however, we do have the traditionally wetter month ahead of us.  Our rainfall so far this year (in what many have considered to be a dry year) is more than the Middle East Countries receive in a year.  Further afield somewhere like Malaysia will receive around 3,000mm of rainfall per annum.

Back to our area and today.  Our top temperature will be around 20c and overnight will remain warm and humid with a temperature low of around 14c.

The wind will be deriving from the WSW-W first thing this morning but as the day passes will see a clockwise movement towards the NW.  The average wind speed will be around 2-3mph.

Summary : A mild but humid day. A 40% risk of some light rain.
