May day bank holiday weekend weather (WS7 weather report 29-4-2017)


It is another mild start to the day and for those of you that may be planning a walk, ride or game of cricket then the weather gods are generally on your side.  The risk of any measureable rain today is only  around 15%.

Cloud cover will remain with us for the majority of the day but the this cover will be mostly at  high level and the risk of any rain is only around 15%.  The air pressure will reduce to around 1008mb by the end of the day and this gradual reduction will mean that the wind speed will increase a little as the day passes but it will be nothing to spoil the day.

Our top temperature will be around 11c and the low tonight will be around 7c.  This is a similar overnight air temperature to last night.

Today’s breeze will start off from the SW but, gradually, as the day passes, the wind derivation will move towards the SE.  This is due to a low pressure system moving in from the W.  The Wind circulates around low pressure systems in an anticlockwise direction and so, as the system pushes across the UK, the wind derivation will also move across the UK from the SW to the SE.

The average wind speed today will be around 5mph this morning and around 8mph this afternoon.  Tomorrow sees a dry morning with rain developing in the afternoon.  Monday, currently, looks as if we will have some overnight rain but the daylight hours will be dry and mild.

Summary for today : Mostly cloudy but mild.
