Who remembers rain? (WS7 weather report 11-4-2017)


The synoptic charts are showing that a low pressure system has developed to the north of the UK and it will be pushing down the UK today.  But will this system bring rain to our area today?

The simple answer to this question is no.  Whilst those of you that watch the barometer will see a reduction in the air pressure to around 1024mb the rain will confine itself to the north of England and Scotland.  The risk of any rain in our area today is only around 6-7%.

This time last year we were in a period of rainy days that started on the 9th and ended on the 17th.  It did not rain the whole time but there was certainly some rain on each of the days.  On the 11 April 2016 13.2mm of rain fell in our area.

Our area will see a bright start but the cloud cover will increase as the day passes.  The cloud will, however, still allow some brighter spells to break through from time to time.  The clouds will be at high and low height levels.

Our top temperature today will be around 14c and our overnight low, bouyed by the cloud cover, will be around 6-7c.

The wind today will be deriving from a WSW- WNW arc.  The average wind speed will be around 8mph.

Summary for today : A dry day but become cloudier as the day passes.
