Becoming calmer (WS7 weather report 23-11-2017)


After yesterday’s very breezy afternoon and evening when gust speeds were reaching nearly 40mph during the early evening things will become a little calmer today.

The first thing you are likely to immediately notice when stepping out this morning is that it is a lot cooler. The air temperature at 06:30 hours this morning (6.2c) is less than half what it was the same time yesterday (12.8c).

During the night and early hours we have had some rain fall in our area (1.6mm)  but the barometer is showing that the air pressure is rising rapidly and the synoptic charts suggest we will see it reach around 1004mb by the end of the day.  As the air pressure rises the risk of rain will reduce too.

The wind speed will reduce as the day passes and will be deriving from a more WSW direction.  The average wind speed this morning will be around 8mph and this will reduce to 5mph later this evening.  Gusts speeds will be around three times the average speed.

During the morning and around lunchtime some bright spells will develop.  These will, however, help our top temperature up to around 10c.  Overnight will be a lot cooler than of late at around 3-4c.

Summary: Becoming brighter, dry and cool.  Still breezy at times to start.
