Rain today but will it snow on Saturday? (WS7 weather report 15-3-2018)


It is a very overcast and damp start to the day as steady light rain was falling in our area at the time of my observations (06:30 hours).

The rain radar images show that the rainfall will continue right throughout the morning commute abating and eventually ceasing for the morning around 10:15 hours.  Further light showers are then likely from around 14:00 hours.  We may see the odd brighter spells break through the cloud bed this afternoon.

It  will be a mild day with a top temperature of around 11c and the minimum overnight temperature will be around 7c.

Today’s wind will be deriving from an ESE -ENE arc and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.

As I have already been asked the question about the likelihood of snow at the weekend I have looked forward at the models and I would suggest the following:-

Based upon the current data, we are 60 to 75% likely of seeing some snow falling in our area on Saturday morning.  The volume at this stage would be simply a guess.  Please note, however that much can change between now and Saturday morning but I will keep a watching brief on the situation.

Summary: Mild, often overcast with some rain.
