There is a lot going on in our region over this August bank Holiday including the T20 cricket finals day at Edgbaston and the Lichfield Food Festival around the city centre. It is important for both events that the weather remains dry.
I am pleased, therefore, to be able to bring some good news in that the air pressure at approximately 08:00 hours was rising slowly and by the end of the day it will still remain high. The radar images are showing little threat of rain cloud in our area (nearest rain cloud this morning is in Shropshire). The risk of measurable rain in our area today is only 12%.
It will be a generally cloudy day with just the odd break for some sunshine in the medium to high cloud base. This cloud is due to the jet stream that is currently sitting across the centre of the UK (running predominantly SW to NE).
Our top temperature will be around 19-20c and overnight the low will be around 9c.
The wind will be deriving from the SW for the majority of the day and the average wind speed will be around 5-6mph.
Overall it is a great day for getting out and about and enjoying the last bank Holiday weekend before Christmas.
