August Bank Holiday Sunday weather

Today sees the second day of the Lichfield Food Festival around the city centre and it should be another dry and mild day for organisers, visitors and stall holders.

The jet stream has traveled towards the north over the last 24 hours and this leaves our area in the lower edge of the stream.  This generally means that we will see plenty of cloud cover and today will be no exception.  Over the next 24-48 hours a low pressure system will move into our area from the south.  This will reduce the surface pressure to around 1012mb and we will see some wide spread rain tomorrow.

Today will be a mild day and until late afternoon / early evening there is only a 20% risk of rain.  The radar images are showing some rain cloud around but they appear to be all south of our area.  The cloud will be at a medium to high height for much of the day today but will be become low level late evening and overnight.

As the evening passes the risk of rain will increase to around 70% by late evening and by tomorrow morning we are 90% certain to see that some rain has or is falling.

The top temperature today will be around 18c and overnight the low will be around 12c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 11.9c (05:34 hours)..

The wind will be deriving from a N – NE arc today but the average wind speed will only be around 3mph.
