Grass frost (WS7weather report 29-11-2016)

ws7-weather-reportI do hope that you have managed to sort out your warm coat and gloves because you are going to need them!  Today is going to be a cool day.  We will start the day with the air temperature at around -2.5c and a nice thick grass frost.

The air pressure will remain at around 1035mb all day which means plenty of clear spells and a top air temperature of only around 4.5 to 5c.  The good news is that the risk of any rain today is only around 4%. This morning could see some icy patches on untreated paths and side sounds so take great care whilst travelling.

Tonight will see the air temperature again dip below freezing point with a low (similar to last night at -2.9c) of around -3c.

The winds will be light and start the day off from the N before settling in a more W direction.  The average wind speed will be around 3-4mph.

Summary : A cool day with bright spells.

    Hi Kevin,

    PLEASE KEEP PUTTING OUT THESE WEATHER REPORTS. MAY I ASK A QUESTION PLEASE? i HAVE A VERY BASIC WEATHER STATION, (ALDI), PURCHASED A FEW YEARS AGO, PRIMARILY TO KEEP A WATCH ON BAROMETER READINGS. TO CALIBRATE FOR THIS AREA, (CHASETOWN), DO I INPUT SEA LEVEL OR SHOULD I LOOK AT THE READINGS GIVEN BY THE BBC MET OFFICE READINGS AT COLESHILL? MANY THANKS IF YOU CAN FIND TIME TO REPLY.

    STEVE.

    P.S. I’M A RADIO HAM AND LIKE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THE BAROMETER AND THE COUNTRY/COUNTRIES AREA THAT A HIGH PRESSURE MIGHT COVER.

      Hi Steven, thanks for reading my blog. I have posted a report every day for the last six years (apart from one week when I was in hospital). I really enjoy it. To calibrate your station choose a calm day (like today) and set the reading as per Coleshill. We are about 128m above sea level so it would make a difference of a few points if you used sea level values. Ham radio and the weather do seem to go together as, I know, transmission distances vary so much with different conditions. You have two great interests!
