Early rain but then what? (WS7 weather report 9-12-2018)


As I prepared to make my morning observations heavy rain was falling in our area but, despite this, there is good news to report.

The surface air pressure (at 07:45 hours) was rising rapidly and this is a sound indicator of an improving weather picture.  This belief is supported by a look at the rain radar imagery which show that the rain cloud clusters are getting smaller and eventually disappearing during the morning.

It is likely that we see some bright spells develop.  The risk of further rain before 09:00 hours is 80%.  The risk of rain by lunchtime is only around 15%.

Today’s top temperature will be around 9c and the overnight minimum temperature will be around 5-6c.

As the day passes the distance between points of similar air pressure will widen and this will lead to reduction in the wind speed.  Today’s average wind speed will be around 6mph.  The wind will be deriving predominantly from a W-WNW arc.

Summary : Early rain showers clearing to leave a mild and, occasionally, bright day.
