Cooler tonight (WS7 weather report 20-3-2017)


As we discussed in yesterday’s blog the jet stream will begin to slip southwards from this evening.  For today, however, the jet stream will be running across the UK from (generally) west to east.

This jet stream track inevitably brings cloud and rain and this morning will be no exception.

By o6:30 hours 0.8mm of rain had fallen in our area and the radar images are clearly showing that more rain clouds will be passing through our area.  The good news is that we are at the southern edge of the main body of the system and, therefore, we are less likely to see as much rain as other parts of the UK.  The risk of further rain showers this morning is still, however, around a 95% risk.

The day is likely to cool a little as the morning passes and the top temperature will be first thing this morning at around 10.5c.  Late this afternoon the clouds will fragment a little to allow for some brighter spells.  Overnight, as the jet stream moves further south and the cloud bed begins to thin, we will see temperatures reach a low of around 3-4c.

It will be another breezy day with an average WSW-SW wind speed of around 9mph and a top gust speed of around 20mph.
