Miserable start to the weekend. (WS7 weather report 20-1-2018)


It is a cool and very overcast start to the day with the air temperature, at approximately 08:00 hours, only just above 2c.

The rain radar images showed that, at the time of observation, our area was sitting in area with he fewest rain / sleet clouds passing through.  The further S you travel towards Birmingham and Coventry the more likely it is that you will encounter some heavy rain and sleet.

Our area will, however, not escape all of the rain / sleet and we are 90% likely to see some precipitation during the morning.  The system of rain is likely to clear our patch by early to mid afternoon.

Our top temperature today will be around 2.5c and overnight the minimum will be around 1c.  During tomorrow we can expect to encounter further rain and sleet.

Today’s breeze will be light and from the ESE this morning before moving towards the NW later today.  The average wind speed will be around 3mph.

Looking ahead we can see that jet stream will be riding across the UK during the early part of next week brining mild air to our area..  This situation is likely to bring double figure temperatures to our area on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Summary: A dull day with a high risk of rain / sleet.
