Bringing in the harvest weather

As you open the curtains this morning you will instantly see that it is much cloudier than recent days.  The jet stream has now moved down the UK from its “loft” position above the UK and it is now set to run across the main body of the UK from W to E.

There is a low pressure system building up to the W (see image below) of us and this will bring some widespread rain to our area tomorrow (current prediction from around mid to late morning) and more showery weather over the weekend.  This is not great news if you plan to visit the V Festival.

In our area today we will see plenty of cloud and just the odd brighter spell.  It will, however, still remain mild at around 24c.  The extra cloud cover will make it feel humid at times.  Overnight will be very mild with a low of around 15-16c.  The risk of any rain today is low at around 7%.

This lack of rain today will be good news for out local Hammerwich farmers who have been working around the clock to bring in the harvest.  Hopefully they will get their work completed today.

The wind today will be deriving from an E-ESE arc.  The average wind speed will be around 3-4mph.

Summary: A generally cloudy day but remaining mild.
