2016 – Over 100mm of rain so far

Yesterday 9mm of rain fell in our area and overnight the air temperature reached a low of 0.9c.  There is a risk, therefore, of some icy patches in more exposed or rural places so care should be taken when stepping out first thing this morning.

As a matter of interest our rainfall for the calendar year has now exceeded the 100mm (4 inches) mark (106.8mm by 06:31 hours  18 February 2016).

Today will be a far more pleasant day than yesterday. We will see some bright spells and a top temperature of up to 7c.  This will feel more like 3c with the wind chill effect, however, it is always pleasant to see some sunshine.  After dark the air temperature will reduce rapidly and the minimum overnight temperature will be around 0c.

The risk of any rain today is around 15% and any rain that may fall would be short-lived and localised.  The risk of rain, however, will reduce as the day passes and the surface air pressure increases to around 1016mb.

The wind will be light and from a SW-W direction for the majority of the day.  The average wind speed will be around 4-5mph.

Summary: A cool but generally dry day with some bright spells too.
