After yesterday’s rain comes Brian (WS7 weather report 20-10-2017)

smalllogoAfter yesterday’s persistent rain we are still left with some lingering showers during our commute to work. These showers will, however, soon pass beyond our area.  The risk of further rain during this morning’s commuting time is around 60-70%.

As the morning passes the air pressure will also increase from its morning observation position of around 996.7mb to about 1004mb by noon.  This increase in air pressure will help to bring us a generally dry day.  The risk of rain beyond 10:00 and before dark is around 15%.

Our top temperature today will be around 12-13c and overnight the minimum temperature will vary very little (10-12c).

Later tonight a further low pressure system (Storm Brian) will reach our area and we can expect to see the barometer reading to reduce again to around 997mb by midnight.  It will be a wet and windy end to the night.  The brunt of the storm will be felt in coastal areas.

This morning’s wind will be averaging around 6mph and deriving from the WSW.  As the daylight fades we will see an increase in the wind speed (average 10-12mph) and gusts could reach around 35mph. The overnight wind will be deriving from a more S-SSE direction.

Summary: Surface air pressure increasing during the day to bring some dry weather.  A further reduction later tonight will bring some heavy rain and a strong winds.
