Jet Stream Heading South (WS7 weather report 22-8-2018)


The jet stream is beginning its steady movement southwards but, for today, the “stream” will remain running across the upper reaches of the UK.  This will mean that the further south you travel in the UK the brighter and warmer the weather becomes.

In our patch we are set for a partially cloudy day with a top temperature of around 22c. The overnight minimum temperature will be around 14c.  The risk of any rain today is around 35%.  the largest risk of rain comes during the mid to late evening and then again overnight.

Due to little movement in the air pressure the winds will be generally light with the average speed of around 6mph. The wind will be deriving mostly from the SSW-SW.

Continuing the look at the jet stream over the next few days I can see that Bank Holiday Monday appears to recommencethe start of brighter weather. Between now and then the jet stream will ride across the main body of the UK.  This will bring lower air pressure and cooler weather.

Summary : Another generally cloudy start.  Some bright spells then a risk of rain later.
