Wet and breezy to start the day (WS7 weather report 31-1-2018)


We start the day off with an air temperature of around 6c but as the day passes the air temperature will reduce steadily and by noon the thermometer will be reading only around 4c.  Overnight will see a further reduction in air temperature.  The overnight low will be around 1c.

It is also a breezy and drizzly start to the day with nearly 1.4mm of rain already fallen in our area by 06:30 hours.

Whilst we will not have persistent rain throughout the day this morning could see further light rain as we make our way to work.  The risk of further rain this morning is around 80%.  The risk of the odd isolated shower during the remainder of the day is around 40%.

Overall the month is ending with approximately 20% more rainfall than at the same point last year.

The day will, however, also see some brighter spells and it is these clear spells that will “encourage” the air temperature to reduce.

The wind will, however, remain brisk throughout the day.  Deriving from a SW-W arc the wind will see speeds of around 12 mph with gusts speeds of up to 28-30mph.  The highest recorded speed by the time of my observations was 24mph at 06:29 hours.

Summary: Some early rain.  Clear spells later with the risk of the odd shower.  Breezy and cool.
