Good morning Storm Brian (WS7 weather report 21-10-2017)

smalllogoThis morning we wake up to a new visitor in the guise of Storm Brian.  I have to say that I am not a fan of naming all of these relatively minor weather events but if it keeps someone in a job then so be it.

The disruption of Storm Brian will be mostly felt in the coastal areas but we will still feel the effects of this low pressure system in our area.  (see image below).  As you will see the points of similar air pressure are tightly packed which has the effect of “squeezing the air” and thus increasing the wind speed.  Our average wind speed today will be around 10mph with gusts of around 25-30mph.  The wind will be deriving from the SSW-SW.

The rain radar images do show that we will see some rain in our area from around 10:15 hours this morning and then later in the afternoon around tea time.  The risk of further rain today is around 90%.

Today’s top temperature will be around 12c and the overnight low will be around 10c.

Tomorrow looks set to be another breezy day but it will be dry.

Summary: A breezy day with a high risk of rain at times.
