Not the best of mornings for gardening (WS7 weather report 10-2-2018)


Sadly, I do not have much weather cheer for those of you planning a morning of gardening.

It is a breezy and cool start to the day with the radar images showing that there is a wide band of rain cloud heading our way between 08:00 hours and lunchtime. At 08:00 hours the air pressure was also falling rapidly which is another clear indicator of worsening weather conditions (unlike you like rain of course!)

On the positive side the weather picture will improve slightly this afternoon before further spells of rain move into the area after dark.  The risk of rain this morning is 86%, this afternoon 30% and after dark 75%.  In total we will receive between 3 and 5mm of rain today.

On the positive side we will see the thermometer reach around 8c and the overnight minimum will remain above freezing point at around 2-3c.  Last night’s overnight minimum temperature was -0.8c at 00:21 hours.

Today’s breeze will be from the mild SSW-SW and the average wind speed will be around 11mph.  At this wind speed the wind chill will make our top temperature of around 8c feel more like 4.5c.

Summary: A dull morning with periods of rain.  Clearing around lunchtime before further rain after dark.  Milder than of late but, at times, breezy.
