Another thaw begins (WS7 weather report 19-3-2018)


It is a cold start to the day (approximately -1c at 06:30 hours) but a lot of the snow that fell during Saturday night / Sunday morning has now began to thaw.  This could, however, leave a risk of some black ice on paths and roads and, therefore, great care should be taken when commuting this morning.

The air pressure will steadily rise to around 1024mb from 1017mb as the day passes this, along with the low relative humidity figure, indicates that we are set for a dry day.  The risk of any precipitation in our area today is only 6%.  We may even see the odd brighter spell develop from time to time.

Our top temperature today will be around 5c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 1c.

Today’s wind will still be deriving from the cold ENE/NE and the average wind speed will be around 12mph.  At 12mph -1c will feel more like -5c with the wind chill.  The noon air temperature of around 3c will feel more like -1.4c.

Summary: Another cool start to the day but warming slightly as the day passes.
