A cooler period ahead (WS7 weather report 5-1-2018)


Today sees the beginning of a cooler period of weather developing in our area although the full effects of the northerly climate will not be felt for another 72 hours or so.

Today starts off having some early morning rain and there is a high risk of some further showers late morning.  The risk of further rain today is around 75%.

It will be a cooler day than of late with a top temperature of only around 6c.  This is the same level of air temperature we achieved by o6:30 hours yesterday morning.  Overnight tonight the minimum air temperature will be around 3c.

The wind will be relatively calm compared to our most recent days.  The wind will be deriving from a S-WSW arc and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.

Over the next few days the jet stream will “sink” from the north and sit well below the south of the UK.  This will form a “block” to the warmer air from the south and will allow the cooler climate from the north to dominate.  We can, therefore, expect some clearer and cooler spells to develop over the next few days.

Summary: Some overnight rain and more showers likely this morning.  Cooler than of late but less breezy.
