Very mild (WS7 weather report 30-12-2017)


It is a very mild start to the day although we have had just over 3mm of rain fall in our area during the early hours.  The good news is that the rain cloud has now moved away from our area and, for the remainder of the daylight hours, we can expect dry and, at times, bright spells.

This day last year the air temperature was only 3.9c at approximately 09:00 hours compared to today’s near 10.5c.

Later tonight / overnight a broad band of rain will again move in our area.  Some of the late night/ overnight rain could be heavy.  The risk of rain during the daylight hours beyond 09:00 hours is 20%.  The risk of rain from late evening onward is around 85%.

Our top temperature today will be around 10.5-11c and overnight will also remain mild with a low of around 8c.

Today’s key feature will be the steady SW-WSW breeze which will be averaging a speed of around 14mph and gusts speeds will be around 25-28mph.

There has been some “chatter” in the press about the area being hit by Storm Dylan but this system is tracking well to the north of our area and we will not be unduly affected.  We will see some a steady breeze develop over the next few days but nothing that some cause undue alarm.

Summary: A dull start but the air pressure will rise rapidly to leave it dry and mild during the daylight hours.  More rain likely late tonight / overnight.
