Cars In The Park and Willenhall Transport Show weather (WS7 weather report 8-7-2018)

smalllogo

As we discussed yesterday today sees the second day of the annual Lichfield cars in the park event.   If you are a vehicle fan then you could also travel across to see the Willenhall transport show.

This morning has already started off very mild with the air temperature above 19c at 08:00 hours.  A month ago (8 June 2018 our top temperature was only 15.4c!)  Yesterday saw the thermometer reach a top temperature of 29.1c at around 17:30 hours.

Today will be another warm and generally sunny day with a top temperature of around 28c.  Overnight will again be hot and sticky with a low (if we can call it low) of around 16-17c.  The risk of any rain is less than 5%.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the NNW-NW.  The average wind speed will be around 3-4mph.

There will be a bit of respite from the extreme heat on Tuesday and Wednesday this week before returning to bright, sunny and warm weather by the weekend.

Summary: Another very warm day.

Pelsall Carnival and Cars In The Park Weather (WS7 weather report 7-7-2018)

smalllogo

Today (and tomorrow) sees the annual Lichfield cars in the park event.  Across in Pelsall in the annual carnival.  Both events are worth a visit as both support local charities.  If you are a car buff then tomorrow also sees the Willenhall transport show.

During the afternoon today there is also the small event of a World Cup quarter-final over in Russia.  The temperature at the match venue in Samara today will be around 26c with some cloud.

In our area we will see the thermometer also reach around the 26-28c mark.  There will be some cloud later in the afternoon but the risk of any rain today is our area is only around 3%.

It will be very warm overnight with a top temperature of around 16-17c.

There will be a slight NNW breeze blowing today but the average wind speed will only be around 5-6mph.

If we look ahead the air temperature is likely to reduce a little during mid-week before returning to the mid 20s by next weekend.  The chance of any precipitation over the next seven days is around 30%.

Summary: A warm day with an increasing amount of cloud later in the afternoon.

Observations made on 7/7/2018 at 07:59 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 17.8c; Air pressure : 1023.6mb rising slowly; Relative humidity 79%; Wind : calm; Rain this month : 0mm; Rain this year : 279.2mm

Very hot yesterday (WS7 weather report 6-7-2018)

smalllogo

The air pressure will rise steadily today and will settle at around 1024mb by the end of the day.  This increase, along with the radar and satellite images, clearly show that we are set for another dry and warm day.

Yesterday the thermometer topped out at 30.4c around 18:00 hours.  Over the first five days of the month our average top temperature is 27.24c.

Today will probably add a few decimal digits to the monthly average top temperature as we will reach around 28c late in the afternoon.  Overnight will also remain very warm with a minimum temperature of around 16c-17c.  Last night’s minimum temperature was 14.5c at 05:06 hours.

The satellite images are also suggesting that there will be some thin cloud around at times today but this cloud will not increase the risk of rain beyond less than 7%.

Today’s breeze will be light (around 5mph) and deriving from the NNW.

Summary: Some occasional light cloud but still a very warm and dry day.

Observations made on 6/7/2018 at 06:29 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

looking good ahead (WS7 weather report 5-7-2018)

smalllogo

Similarly to yesterday there is a risk of rain in the south of England and parts of Wales but neither system of rain is likely to reach our area.  All of the indications, including the air pressure slowly rising, suggest that we are set for another warm and sunny day ahead.  The risk of rain is only around 6%.

Our top temperature today will be around 27c.  Yesterday we reached 27.2c at around 17:30 hours.  Tonight will be another warm night with a low of around 14-15c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the NW and the average wind speed will be around 5mph.

Looking ahead to the weekend the weather looks set to fine for both Cars In The Park (Lichfield) and the Pelsall Carnival.

Summary: Another warm and sunny day with a top temperature of around 27c.

Observations made on 5/7/2018 at 06:31 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 15.6c; Air pressure : 1014.2mb rising slowly; Relative humidity 71%; Wind : 3 mph NNW; Rain this month : 0mm; Rain this year : 279.2mm

Some rain in the south (WS7 weather report 4-7-2018)

smalllogo

There is likely to be some rain today – but not in our area! The synoptic charts are showing some lower air pressure and a risk of rain in and around the south west of England.

For our area it is going to be a slightly cooler day (it is all relative) but dry day. Our top temperature will be around 24-25c but overnight will remain very warm at around 15-16c.  Last night’s minimum air temperature was 11.6c at 04:30 hours.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the E-NE this morning before slipping clockwise to end the day deriving from the ESE-SE.  This later wind direction will help introduce a little more cloud later in the day.

Looking ahead there does not appear to be any significant change in the synoptic forecasts to suggest any real change in the weather until the 15-16th of the month.  At the moment these later days are looking likely to see some rain but the chance of that forecast being fully accurate, this far out, is only around 30-40%.

Summary: Another warm day but with a little more cloud later in the day.  Very mild overnight.

Observations made on 4/7/2018 at 06:31 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 12c; Air pressure : 1016.8mb steady; Relative humidity 88%; Wind : 3 mph NE; Rain this month : 0mm; Rain this year : 279.2mm

Like last year (WS7 weather report 3-7-2018)

smalllogo

It is yet another bright start to the day.  The pollen count remains high and the UV index will peak at 8 (out of a scale of 1 to 11) around lunchtime.  8 is about as high as the UV index ever gets in the UK so, once again, great care needs to be taken if you are planning to spend any time outdoors today.

The risk of any rain today is only around 2%.

On the 3rd July last year our top temperature was 23c and on the 6 July we reached a top temperature of 29c.

It is going to be another bright and sunny day with our top temperature reaching around 25c.  This is a little bit cooler than some of the more recent days but it is still very warm.  Overnight the minimum temperature will be around 13c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the NE and will “blowing” at an average speed of around 7mph by lunchtime.

Summary: A bright and sunny day with a high pollen count and very high sun index.

Observations made on 3/7/2018 at 06:18 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 12.2c; Air pressure : 1019.8mb steady; Relative humidity 85%; Wind : 1 mph NE; Rain this month : 0mm; Rain this year : 279.2mm

Back to work in the heat? (WS7 weather report 2-7-2018)

smalllogo

There is going to be no respite from the heat for all of us heading back to the school or office today.  I do hope, however, that all of you managed to have a pleasant weekend in the sunshine.

The synoptic charts are clearly showing that the surface air pressure is remaining stable and will continue to do so for the next few days.  The jet stream is also still riding above the UK and currently appears to continue to do so for, at least, the remainder of the week.  This is good news for the organisers of Pelsall Carnival and the Hammerwich Hall Fete who both have events this coming weekend.  It is also surprisingly good news as the Wimbledon tennis championship starts today and that event usually signals the start of the rain!

The risk of any rain in our area today is less than 4%.

The top temperature today will be around 28c and overnight the minimum will be around 13-14c.

Today will see some breeze originate from a NNW-NE arc.  The average wind speed will be around 6mph.

Summary: Another very warm day.  UV index and the pollen count will both be high.

Observations made on 2/7/2018 at 06:22 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 14.4c; Air pressure : 1016.7mb steady; Relative humidity 83%; Wind : 3 mph N; Rain this month : 0mm; Rain this year : 279.2mm
