Not so bright (WS7 weather report 21-2-2018)


After yesterday’s glorious sunshine when many of us were able to get outside, even if only for a lunchtime walk, today will be much more of a cloudyand cool day.

The rain radar images are showing just a few rogue rain clouds that will pass through our area between 07:00 and 11:00 hours. Whilst the majority will simply blow by there is still a 40% risk of some light rain or drizzle.

Our top temperature today will be around 7c which is a lot cooler than the same time and day last year when the thermometer was reading around 11c.

The wind will be light as the air pressure will only reduce a little as the day passes (from 1028mb to 1024mb) but the wind will be deriving from the cold NE.  The average wind speed will only be 2 -3mph but even at this low speed it will add a real chill to the air.

Looking ahead the GFS ensemble (see image below) is suggesting that we will see a dip in air temperature at the end of the month and towards the beginning few days of March so don’t put away your scarf and gloves just yet!

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