A Met Office warning

The Met Office has issued a severe weather warning for our area today.  The reason for this warning is that a low pressure system, that has developed to the S-SE, will be travelling up the UK today bringing some widespread rain.

There is a 92% risk of some moderate to heavy rain and, therefore, localised standing water / flooding could develop.  Care needs to be taken when considering a journey in our area later today.  We will see the heaviest rain around teatime tonight.

For those who wish to see the low pressure system develop over our area the barometer will reduce to about 985mb at the lowest point.  Currently (06:30 hours) the air pressure is at 992mb.

It will be a mostly cloudy with the occasional brighter spell. Our top temperature today will be around 15c and the overnight low will be around 9c.

The wind will be light this morning but will increase in velocity during the afternoon as the centre of the low air pressure system moves towards us.  The average wind speed today will be around 8mph.  The wind will be deriving from a NE-NW arc.

Summary :  A generally cloudy day with some rain, possibly heavy, later this afternoon and evening.

 Observations made 06:32 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Air pressure : 992.1mb; Temperature 10.2c; Relative humidity :85%; Wind : Calm; Rain this month : 14.6mm; Rain this year : 358mm.
