Jet stream position (WS7 weather report 22-6-2018)


It is a bright start to the day and, I am pleased to be able to report, that the majority of the day will also see bright spells.

The barometer, at my observations,  was showing that the surface air pressure was high and rising slowly.  The synoptic charts also showed that there is only little change forecast in the air pressure for the remainder of the day (a slight reduction towards 1028mb).

The radar and satellite images forecast that there will be very little cloud cover in our area today and what cloud there is will only bring a 4% risk of any rain.

Over the weekend will see a little more cloud as the jet stream just completes its final movements northwards.  The “stream” will ride down parts of the UK tomorrow and this will see the development of more cloud.  By Monday the “stream” will be sitting above the UK and we can then expect to see dry, bright and increasingly warm weather as the week passes.

For today our top temperature will be around 19-20c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 11c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the NW and the average wind speed will be around 6mph.

Summary: A generally bright and dry day.
