Early rain but how much more? (WS7 weather report 24-3-2018)


After receiving some rain in the early hours of the day the radar images are showing that a further light rain cloud system will be reaching our area around 08:00 hours.  See image below.  The risk of some light rain from this system is around 85-90%.

The good news is, however, that the air pressure will continue to rise slowly (ending the day at around 1008mb).  After 10:30 hours the risk of any further rain reduces to around 15%.

It will be a mild day with a top temperature of 9c and an overnight low of around 3c.  This cooler overnight temperature is partly due to the cloud covering fragmenting a little.  Tomorrow, for all of us that want to enjoy some time outside, will be a dry and often bright day.

Today’s breeze will predominantly be deriving from a NNE-NW arc and the average wind speed will be around 4mph.

Summary: After some light rain this morning it will be a generally cloudy day and mostly dry.
