A little cooler (WS7 weather report 17-7-2018)


We received another 0.4mm of rain in our area yesterday.  This makes a meagre total of 8.2mm for for the month.  This figure is around a third of the rainfall we had received by the same point the previous two years.

The air pressure starts of relatively low today but will increase slowly as the day passes towards 1016mb.  We will see some cloud cover and this cloud cover will bring a 35% risk of some light rain later this morning.

Our top temperature today will be around 21-22c.  This will be a pleasant respite from the mid to late 20c temperatures we have been encountering.  It will, however, still be a very mild night at around 14c.  (Last night minimum air temperature was 12.3c at 05:40 hours).

By the weekend the jet stream (which is currently split either side of the UK) will move to a more stable position above the UK.  This will bring another period of warm and dry weather.  We can expect temperatures at the weekend to reach around the mid 20s and by early next week to be around 27-28c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the WSW.  The average wind speed will be 4mph.

Summary: A cooler day than of late.  Some cloud and a  35% risk of some light rain.  Mild overnight.
