After the rain yesterday / overnight when 3.8mm fell in the Hammerwich area it feels a lot less humid this morning (78% relative humidity) compared to yesterday afternoon’s oppressive conditions. Working in the garden yesterday was very difficult. The overnight records show that the Leeds area received the most rain yesterday with nearly 60mm.
There is heavy rainfall this morning to the west of us during the morning but the radar images are suggesting that the main body of the rain system is 30-50miles away. This should be far enough to leave us with a dry and, at times, bright morning. Our top temperature of the day will be around non when we will see the thermometer reach 23c.
This afternoon will see the cloud cover increase and the temperature reduce. Rain will reach our area around 14:00 – 15:00 hours. The radar images suggest that some of the rain could be heavy. The rain system will not clear until early evening. (It may not rain this entire period but the risk throughout this period will be around 60-80%. The highest risk being the earlier parts of the afternoon).
Once the rain passes we will see some slight fragmentation of the cloud and this will allow the temperature to reduce to a minimum of around 10-11c overnight.
