Chilly start – Any risk of snow? (WS7 weather report 16-1-2018)


It is a chilly and breezy start to the day.  Over the next couple of days we enter a phase of low pressure from the north that will bring a strong breeze, cool air temperatures, rain and possibly the odd snow flurry.

Overnight / early this morning we have received nearly 1mm of rain fall in our area and although today will be mainly dry we will probably receive some further measurable precipitation.  As the daylight passes the risk of any precipitation falling as snow increases.  The risk of some sleet/snow /rain today is around 65%.  The further north you move towards Derbyshire and the Staffordshire Moorlands the higher the risk of snow settling becomes.

Our top temperature today will only be around 4c but with the wind chill this will feel more like 1c.   Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 1c.

Great care will need to be taken when travelling tomorrow morning as we can expect some icy conditions.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the WSW.  The average wind speed will be around 10mph with gust speeds of around 28mph.

Summary: Cold and breezy.  A risk of some precipitation during the day which may fall as sleet or even snow after dark.
