A misty start (WS7 weather report 28-3-2017)


Today’s starts off with a some mist lying in our area.  With only a light breeze blowing this mist will not completely clear until the end of the rush hour period.

This morning will see some high level cloud which will thin enough at times to allow for some brighter spells to break through.  As the afternoon passes the air pressure will continue to slowly reduce (to around 1016mb) and a this lower air pressure system will help thicken the cloud cover.  This thickening of the cloud cover will increase the risk of some rain to around 60% by late afternoon.

The extra cloud cover will, however, mean it will be a mild day and night.  Our top temperature will be around 14c and the overnight low will be around 9c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 5.1c at 00:04 hours.

The wind will be light this morning before increasing later as the lower air pressure system moves closer.  The wind will be deriving from a warmer ESE-SSW and the average wind speed this morning will be around 3mph and this afternoon 5-6mph.

Summary for today : A misty start but becoming very mild.  A 60% risk of some rain late afternoon.
