A dry month so far. (WS7weather report 28-1-2017)

ws7-weather-reportIt is a bit of a drizzly start to the day (2.4mm by 08:00 hours) and the radar images show that the risk of rain will remain high (90%) in our area until just after 10:00 hours.  More rain showers will then push into our area this afternoon and in the evening.

Overall it has been a dry January compared to what would be expected.  At this of the year we average around 70mm in the month (63mm by the 28th day) but, so far, we have only received just over 60% of the expected rainfall total.

It will be, however, a milder day with a top temperature around 7c.  if you are prepared to put up with the odd spell of rain then it isn’t too bad a day for getting out and about.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 2-3c.

The wind will be deriving from the SW for large proportions of the day and it is this wind direction that is creating the mild air and the increased cloud levels.  This morning the cloud density will be thick but as the afternoon passes the cloud will lift towards medium/high levels which will allow the odd brighter spell.

The average wind speed today will be around 5-6mph.

Summary for today : A drizzly start with the risk of localised showers later.
