Early rain but will it last? (WS7 weather report 13/10/2016)

At the time of my morning observations (06:20 hours) some light rain was falling in our area and the air pressure was reducing slowly.  The air pressure will reduce to around 1012mb by the end of the day.  This sees the end of the high pressure block that has been protecting us for some days now and, over the next few days, a new weather pattern will develop.

The rain radar images for today show that there are further rain clouds that will pass through our area this morning and there is a 60% risk of some further rain showers today. The majority of the rain clouds will, however, pass to the north and south of our area.

The cloud bed will be at a medium and medium and high height.  It will bring a generally cloudy day with just a few fragments to allow for the odd brighter spell.

Our top temperature will be around 11-12c and overnight the minimum temperature will be 7c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 8.9c at 03:41 hours.

The wind will be deriving predominantly from a NE-E arc and the wind speed will increase slightly as the day passes and the air pressure reduces.  The average wind speed will be around 6mph.

Summary : A generally cloudy day.  Some risk of rain showers but overall generally dry.
