Frosty start to the day (WS7 weather report 30-1-2018)


it is a very cool and frosty start to the day with the air temperature at 06:30 hours only just reaching 1.6c.  The overnight low was 1.2c at 05:00 hours.

The good news is that we will see some bright spells during the daylight hours and these will allow our top temperature to rise up to around 5-6c. The risk of any rain during daylight hours is less than 10%.

Late afternoon and then during the evening the cloud cover will increase.  This will have two effects.  Firstly, it will help maintain the overnight minimum temperature around 5c and secondly it will increase the risk of rain overnight to around 60%.  We are likely to have received some rain by the time we make our morning commute on Wednesday.

The air pressure, for the majority of the daylight hours, will be steady which means the winds will be generally light.  The average wind speed today will be around 4-6mph and the wind will be deriving from the SSW-SW.

For our astronomer friends don’t forget that tomorrow is the second full moon of the month and, therefore, it is classed as a blue moon.  A rare event made even rarer by the fact it is also a supermoon and a lunar eclipse.  As rare as a blue moon in fact!

Summary: A cool start to the day.  Some bright spells before becoming cloudier later.
