Yesterday saw another 2.2mm of rain fall in Hammerwich and our monthly total is now (almost) at the monthly average for the month of May (average 50mm current monthly total 49.2mm).
Looking out of the window first thing this morning you would imagine that today will not see any further rainfall, however, the early bright start masks the fact that the cloud cover will increase during the afternoon bringing a 65% risk of a rain shower rain during the afternoon and early evening.
Our top temperature today will be around 14c and overnight the minimum temperature will be 8c.
The wind will start off deriving from the SW but this afternoon we will see a subtle switch clockwise towards the W-NW. It is when this more westerly wind direction arrives then we will see an increase in cloud cover and, along with it, a heightened risk of rain.
If you want to mow the lawn today or to be sure of a dry walk in the park then I would suggest that you do it before lunch.
looking way ahead towards the Bank Holiday Monday the current charts suggests it will be cloudy but predominantly dry. There are, however, many small changes that can take place between now and then that can make a massive difference to the weather on the day.
Summary: A bright start becoming cloudier later with an increasing risk of a rain shower.
