Barometer tells the tale (WS7 weather report 28-11-2018)


It was a much milder start, temperature wise, to the day when I made my observations at approximately 06:18 hours this morning.  What was noticeable, however, was the steady, but mild, breeze.

The barometer is a good indicator of what is ahead with the air pressure reading reducing rapidly.  When reviewing the synoptic charts I can see that a large system of low pressure is moving across the UK from the W. This low pressure system will remain with us for around 48 hours.

The low pressure system will see the wind speeds increase today and will also bring showers as the day passes.  The risk of rain today is around 80%.  Showers could develop any time as the radar systems are showing plenty of small rain cloud clusters on the imagery.

Today’s top temperature will be around 14c.  This is roughly twice the top temperature we attained on the same day in 2016 and 2017.  Overnight will remain very mild at around 9c.  last night’s minimum air temperature was 5c at midnight.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from a SE to SW arc and the average wind speed will be around 12mph this morning increasing to around 17-18mph this afternoon.  Gusts speeds could reach around 35mph.

Summary : A mild but breezy day with a high risk of some rain too.
