A cool start but then what? WS7 weather 13/1/2016

Our area has seen some overnight / early morning rain deposited but the radar images are showing that the rest of the morning should be a generally dry one.  The risk of further rain this morning is only around 20%. There may even be some breaks in the medium to high cloud bed to allow for some brighter spells.

Despite the brighter spells it will still be a cool day with a top temperature of only around 4-5c.  With the wind chill this will feel more like 2-3c lower than the thermometer is reading.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 2c.

As the afternoon passes so will the risk of rain increase.  The cloud bed will, by mid afternoon, become lower and the risk of rain from mid afternoon to later evening increases to around 80%.  The radar images are showing that the rain clouds that are heading our way are extensive and, therefore, it is unlikely that our area will miss out.

The wind will be deriving from the WSW-SW and the average wind speed this morning will be around 6mph.  We can expect the wind speed to increase this afternoon  slightly to around 8mph as the air pressure begins to reduce.  This reduction in air pressure will herald the rain system moving towards us.

During tomorrow we may see some sleet mixed in with the rain but their will be no disruptive accumulation.

Summary: A cool day turning wet later in the day.
