Jet stream on the up (WS7 weather report 30-8-2018)


It is a cooler start to the day with the air temperature 8.7c at 06:15 hours.  The overnight minimum temperature was 8.5c around daybreak.

The good thing is that when we look out of the window first thing this morning is that we can see some clearer sky and light clouds.  Whilst the cloud cover may merge a little this afternoon the risk of any rain today will never be greater than 7%.

All the positive weather news is due to the jet stream steadily moving northward.  By late Friday / early Saturday morning the jet stream will be established to the north of the UK (see image below).  This positioning will allow high pressure to become established in our area bringing some dry and mild weather.

Today’s top temperature will be around 19c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 10c.

Today’s breeze will be very light.  The breeze will be deriving from the WNW and the average wind speed will be around 4mph.
