The jet stream is moving beyond the South coast for the next couple of days and the air pressure will rise during the day from around 1011mb to 1016mb. This situation will continue throughout the weekend and Monday before the jet stream “cuts across” the UK on Tuesday bringing more cloud and probably rain.
These combining factors mean we are set for a dry day today with a low (7%) risk of rain and some sunny periods through, at times, a partly cloudy sky. It is certainly a nice day to be working in the garden, going for a ride or walk in the countryside.
Our top temperature today will be around 18c and overnight the low will be around 9-10c. There will even be some opportunity in the early hours of tomorrow for our astronomers to make some observations.
The wind will start the day from the SW but will move clockwise to spend much of the day driving from the WNW. The average wind speed will be around 5mph.
Finally a word of advice. If you are planning a trip into Walsall today please be aware that two demonstrations are planned. The first by the EDL will be centered near to the art gallery and the second by a group called “We are Walsall” will be at the Crossing near to the Bus Station.
