The big thaw (WS7 weather report 13-12-2017)


The big thaw has begun, however, we should not be too complacent when walking or driving on untreated roads or paths as they could still be very slippery.

It will be a partly cloudy day and the radar images are showing that some rain is heading our way during the commute to work at other regular times during the day. The risk of some rain today is around 85%.  To help confirm this thought the barometer reading, at the time of my observations, was steadily reducing in value.  At 06:30 hours we were already seeing a reading of around 998mb.  Readings below 1000mb usually suggest some inclement weather.

Our top temperature today will be a balmy 4c to 5c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 1c.

Any rain, later in the day when the air temperatures reduce to around 2c, could fall with a mixture of sleet mixed in.  This sleet will, however, not create any accumulation.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the milder SW-SSW and the average wind speed will be around 8mph.

Summary: The thaw continues as air temperatures increase to up to 5c.  A partly cloudy day with a high risk of some rain.
