Wintry showers? (WS7 weather report 11-2-2018)


After last night’s very breezy end to the day (the top wind speed  recorded by my weather station was 31mph at 00:05 hours) this morning starts off bright, cool and still a little breezy.

The air temperature of 2.6c, recorded at 08:30 hours, will see very little increase as the day passes and our top temperature is only likely to be around 3c.  With an average wind speed of 12mph this will feel more like  -1.1c.  You will need to warp up warm if you are going out on your bike or fo a walk.

This will be particularly necessary around 10:00 hours when the radar images are showing tha there is a snow / sleet carrying cloud system heading our way.  The chance of any precipitation is around 60% as the system may simply blow by.  By mid afternoon the cloud cover will again increase and we then see a 70% risk of some rain /sleet falling in our area.

Overnight will see the cloud cover decrease and this will allow the air temperature to reduce to around freezing point.

Today’s breeze will remain brisk with the average speed around 10-12mph.  The wind will be generally deriving from a WSW-WNW arc.

Summary: A bright start to the day but cool and breezy with a chance of a wintry shower this morning.  Rain likely during the afternoon.
