Below zero start! (WS7 weather report 29-10-2018)


For the first time since the 18-19 March 2018 the overnight / early morning air temperature has dipped below zero.  As I made my observations at 06:24 hours there was a slight grass frost and the air temperature was below freezing point at -1.1c.  The overnight low was -1.2c at 06:17 hours.

Whilst the air pressure will reduce slighty as the day passes the day will still remain generally dry and bright.  The risk of any rain today will only be around 11%.

It will, however, be a cool day with the top temperature only around 7c.  Overnight the minimum temperature should remain positive (although low) at around 2-3c.  Gardeners should be taking care of their young and tender plants.

Today’s breeze will be light throughout the day with the average wind speed around 3-5mph.  The wind will be deriving from a NW-NE arc.

By the weekend the breeze will be deriving more from the milder SW-WSW.  This will bring with it milder air temperatures (into double figures) but a little more cloud too.

Summary for today : A cold start to the day with the air temperature below freezing point.  Becoming bright but remaining cool.
