Get outside (WS7 weather report 20-2-2018)


The rain radar images are showing (at approximately 06:35 hours) that any significant threat of rain is now beyond our area.

As the day passes the surface air pressure will continue to rise from around 1020mb to around 1028mb.  This high air pressure and the steady NW breeze will reduce any further risk of rain to only about 10%.

Today, will be an ideal day for “popping” out some washing to dry or going for a walk or just generally getting outside.

During the day we will see some bright spells and these will help lift our top temperature up to around 8c.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 4c.  This time last year we were in a spell of very mild weather.  The air temperature at the corresponding time a year ago was already 11.3c (compared to this morning’s 5.9c)

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the cool NW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.  At this wind speed the wind chill will make our top temperature of 8c feel more like 6.8c.

Summary: Increasing air pressure will help bring some clear spells and a dry day.  Breezy at times but generally pleasant.
