Hello BST! (WS7 weather report 25-3-2018)


Welcome to British Summer Time! In case you have forgotten you need to put your clocks forward one hour.

As if to herald in BST the weather will be on its best behaviour.  We will see plenty of sunny spells and the top temperature will be around 12c.  As the day passes the air pressure will increase to around the 1016mb mark.

Overnight will also see little cloud cover and this means that the top temperature will reduce to around 2-3c.

Today’s breeze will be light but it will be deriving from the WNW-NW which means it will have a bit of cool feel to it if you are in the shade.  The average wind speed will, however, only be around 5mph.

The risk of any rain today is no greater than 8%.

I know that there is a lot of chatter about snow at the end of the week in our area but, at the moment, there is only very slight marginal evidence to support the likelihood of snow (40% risk on saturday but the accuracy is only around 40% at this stage). There is, however, clear evidence of rain and cooler air temperatures.

Things can and will change and the forecast of the air temperature and a measurement called the “thickness” at approximately 1.5Km above the earth will become more accurate as each day passes.  You can be sure I will tell you if snow becomes a real risk as the days pass.  in the meantime I hope you have a great day out in the sun!

Summary: An often bright and sunny day.
