More rain than average in July 2015

So far in July 2015 we have received 31.2% more rain than average for the month and there is still the chance of a few drops more today.

The air pressure is beginning to rise but the low air pressure system that delivered so much rain on our area on Sunday is still with us and will bring a 45% risk of some showers today.  The radar images are showing some small rain clusters in our area this morning but the largest risk of some showers will be from lunchtime to late afternoon.  It will not all be bad news though as some brighter spells will break through the cloud bed from time to time.

The low pressure system will also bring some breeze.  The average wind speed today will be around 10mph.  The wind will be deriving predominantly from the WSW.

The good news is that as the day passes the low pressure system pushes further East and the jet stream moves further to the S.  This will mean that over the next day or so we will see less risk of rain and a few more brighter spells although the air temperature will not be too high due.

Today we can expect the thermometer to rise to a maximum of around 16-17c.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 9c.  (Last night’s minimum temperature was 12c at 05:48 hours).

Summary : A partly cloudy and breezy day.  Risk of some showers too.
