Odd flurry of snow (WS7 weather report 17-1-2018)


Yesterday saw the odd light flurry of snow and today will present a similar level of risk (around 25%).  What is, however, for certain is that it will be a cold start to the day with a stiff breeze.

The air temperature, during our commute this morning, will only be around 3-4c and with the wind chill it will feel more like -1c.   As the day passes we will see some brighter spells develop and these will allow the top temperature to reach around 6c.

Overnight, with rain moving into the area, the air temperature will rise a little to around 7c.  Some of the rain could be heavy.  The risk of rain later today is around 85%.

Today’s breeze will be stiff for most of the day with the synoptic charts showing that the points of similar air pressure remain closely spaced.  This spacing is a sure indication of a strong breeze.

The wind will be deriving from SSW-W arc for the majority of the day.  The average wind speed will be around 10mph with gust speeds of around 30mph.  The strongest winds will be blowing later in the evening or during the early hours of tomorrow.

Summary: A cold start but some brighter spells developing.  Remaining breezy with rain later.
