On the edge (WS7 weather report 20-1-2019)


It was another overcast and slightly misty start to the day.  The air temperature was 2.4c at the time of my observations which is very similar to the the same day last year (2.1c at 07:50 hours).

Our area lies right on the edge of some heavy cloud throughout the day today.  The further east you travel the more likely you will see some bright spells.  We may be fortunate enough to receive some bright spells but it is more likely to be a generally cloudy day.

Our top temperature will be around 4c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 2c.

As the day passes the air pressure will steadily rise to around 1024mb.  This movement in the air pressure will signal a change in wind direction from the ESE towards the NW.  The risk of rain will also reduce from 30% before 09:00 to 10% by mid afternoon.  Today’s average wind  speed will be around 2-3mph.

The week ahead will see  sunshine, some cool temperatures overnight , some rain and possibly the odd wintry shower but this is unlikely to create any accumulation.  A proper January mix!

Summary : A slightly misty start to the day.  Generally cloudy but dry.
