A day for a walk and a look ahead (WS7 weather report 28-12-2018)

smalllogoAt the moment the jet stream (see image below) will be “riding” across the UK.  This is a situation, if the GFS forecast models are correct (see image below), that will last until the middle of January.

This all suggests that we are set for a period of mild, if often cloudy, weather.  Today will be no exception.

Our top temperature today will be around 8c and there will be little change in this position overnight.  We may see the odd brighter spell today but, overall, it will be generally cloudy although the risk of any rain is only around 10%.

Today’s breeze will be light and deriving from the SW/WSW.  The average wind speed will be around 4-5mph.

Today is going to be another ideal day for walking off the Christmas dinner and enjoying some fresh air.

Summary : A mild day with occasional bright spells but generally cloudy.
