A new month and season (WS7 weather report 1-9-2018)


At 06:30 hours this morning a light mist and a heavy dew greeted the new month and the first day of the meteorological autumn. It was an apt way to start the new period.

The good news is, for all us of hanging on to the fact that Summer is still astrologically with us, is that it is going to be a fine and dry day.

We will see the early cloud bed break up during the day and this will allow for some bright spells to develop. Today’s top temperature will be around 21-22c and the overnight minimum temperature will be around 14c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 8.7c at 05:34 hours.

The surface air pressure will remain high throughout the day.  This means the risk of any rain today is no greater than 7%.

As a consequence of the high pressure there will only be low wind speeds today. The breeze will be deriving from a SE-SW arc and the average wind speed will be around 3-5mph.

Looking ahead the synoptic charts are suggesting a low pressure system reaching post parts of the UK on the 12 of the month.  This system, if it manifests as forecast, would bring strong winds and heavy rain to parts of the UK.  It is, however, a long way away and the situation can change dramatically.  I only advise you of the likelihood in case you are undecided about which weekend to carry out tasks or trips out this month.

Summary for today : A slightly misty start but becoming dry and warm.
