How cold when riding your bike? (WS7 weather report 4-2-2018)


After yesterday’s generally wet interlude today will be a much better day for venturing out for a walk or a ride but you will need to wrap up warm.

The barometer is showing theat the air pressure is rising rapidly and by later today it will reach around 1032mb.  At this high level rain is unlikely and today will be no exception.  The risk of rain at anytime today is only 11%.

It will, however, be a cool day with a top temperature of only 4c and overnight we can expect grass frost and icy patches to form when the air temperature reduces to around -1 to -2c overnight. During the day we will see some bright spells develop through a fragmented cloud.

Today’s wind will be deriving from the cool NNE-NE but the average wind speed will be light at only around 5mph.  Even at this low wind speed the 2c air temperature will feel more like 0.9c.  If you are riding your bike at, say, 15mph an air temperature of 2c will feel more like -4c.

Summary: A cool but dry day with some brighter spells developing along the way.
