What happened to the indian summer? (WS7 weather report 16-9-2017)

smalllogoThere is a distinctly chilly feel to the air this morning and we are certainly getting an early taste of Autumn rather than an Indian summer.

We have already seen some early morning rain fall in our area (around 1mm) and the radar images are showing that there is a 73% risk of further rain for us today.  The radar images also show that there are a number of small rain carrying clouds that will pass through our area this morning but, hopefully, will simply blow by.  Any rain that does emanate from these clouds would be very short lived.

From around 13:00 hours onward the risk of longer periods of rain increases to our maximum level (73%).  The largest risk of rain being around mid afternoon.

We will see some brighter spells too during the day.

Our top temperature will be around 14c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 8c.

Today’s breeze will be from the cool NW-N.  The average wind speed will only be around 5mph but this will reduce the feel of the top temperature by around 2c.

Just a note that there is the opportunity to join a group cycle ride tomorrow for more details follow this link.  The ride takes in Fradley Junction.

Summary for today: Some bright spells and a risk of rain too.  Highest risk of rain during the afternoon.
