A lot warmer than a year ago. (WS7 weather report 13-11-2018)

smalllogo

As I write this post (at approximately 06:30 hours) the air pressure is rising rapidly  – this is a good sign for the day ahead!  We can expect the air pressure to peak around 1021mb later today.

This time last year the early morning air temperature was a mere 1.7c so today’s 7.3c was a most pleasant start to the day.

There is a slight risk of some light rain / drizzle as we make our way to work this morning but the risk is not greater than 16%.  As the morning passes we will see some bright spells develop.  Our top temperature will be around 12c.  Overnight more cloud will gather and this will help keep the minimum overnight temperature at a very mild 9c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SW/WSW and the average wind speed will be around 8-9mph.

Summary for today : A mild and, at times, sunny day.

Observations made on 13/11/2018 at 06:26 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 7.3c; Air pressure : 1013.7 mb rising rapidly; Relative humidity 88%; Wind : 8mph SW ; Rain this month : 14.8mm; Rain this year : 441.2mm

Rain in the west (WS7 weather report 12-11-2018)

smalllogo

It has been a slightly cooler start to the day than the one I anticipated during yesterday morning’s forecast.  At 06:45 hours the air temperature today was a cool 5c.  The overnight minimum temperature ‘dipped’ to 4.3c at 04:12 hours.

The day will, however, soon warm up and we can expect to see plenty of bright spells during the daylight hours.  Our top temperature will be around 12c.  The average top temperature for this time of year is around 10c.  Overnight the minimum air temperature, due to a bit of increased cloud cover, will be around 7c.

There is a risk of some showers during the day but the risk is not greater than 45%.  The radar images are showing plenty of small rain cloud clusters to the west of our region this morning (around Shropshire and Mid Wales) but one or two of the may just reach our area during the daylight hours.

Today’s breeze will be bringing warm air from the SSE-SW.   The average wind speed will be around 7mph.  Gust speeds could reach around 20mph.

Summary for today : A mild day with some bright spells and a 45% risk of some short lived rain showers during daylight hours.

Observations made on 12/11/2018 at 06:32 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Remembrance day weather (WS7 weather report 11-11-2018)

smalllogo

It is a drizzly start to the day and rain will remain a threat right up until mid morning.  Hopefully the risk of showers will, however, subside, by the 11th hour.  The risk of rain before 11am is 80%. The risk of rain at 11am is around 35%.

During the afternoon we will see some brighter spells develop and this will help lift our top temperature up to around 11c. This is around 2-3c warmer than the corresponding day on the previous two years.Overnight, tonight, the minimum temperature will be a mild 7c.

Today’s breeze will be generally light and deriving from a SE-SW arc.  The average wind speed will be around 7mph.

Looking ahead we are set for a generally mild week with the top air temperature around 10-12c.  We are very unlikely to see any grass frost develop between now and the end of the working week.

Summary for today : A mild morning but outbreaks of drizzle / light rain likely.  Becoming brighter this afternoon.

A game of two halves and remembrance parade forecast (WS7 weather report 10-11-2018)

smalllogo

After last night’s breezy and wet interlude today will start of with some occasional bright spells.  This morning will, however, be the best of the day as the risk of rain heightens as we pass through the afternoon and into the evening.  The risk of rain today is 68%.

Sadly it also looks as the prelude to the many remembrance parades across the region tomorrow will also be dogged by rain.  Some of this rain could be heavy.  Whilst it may not be raining heavy (or at all) at the 11th hour paraders are 70% likely to see some heavy rain as they muster from 10:00 hours.

Today’s top temperature will be around 11c and the overnight low tonight will be around 7c. Last night’s minimum temperature was 8c.

Today’s breeze will be mainly deriving from the south.  The average wind speed today will be 7mph.

Summary for today : A mild morning with some bright spells.  Rain showers moving in during the afternoon and evening.

Observations made on 10/11/2018 at 08:06 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

A stay in night? (WS7 weather report 9-11-2018)

smalllogo

At the time of my morning observations all was calm with the weather and the air temperature was a mild 8.3c.  This relatively mild and calm session will continue for most of the daylight hours, however, there is a ‘sting’ towards the end of the day.

Late afternoon / early evening the wind speed will increase and between tea time today and midnight we are likely to see some very gusty weather.  Some of the wind gusts could reach 35+mph.

A widespread band of rain cloud will also move across th UK and will reach our area by late afternoon / early evening.  Initially this clod system will bring light rain but, by the end of the evening, this rain will become heavy.  We can expect rain rates of up to 6 to 8mm per hour.  The risk of rain today is 90%.

Our top temperature today will be 11c and overnight the minimum will be a mild 7c.

Today’s wind will be mostly deriving from the S-SE.  The average speed this morning will be around 5mph .  Overall the average wind speed will be around 11mph.

Summary for today : A mild morning but with an increasing risk of rain as the day passes.  Becoming breezy too.

Observations made on 9/11/2018 at 06:28 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Will it rain again today? (WS7 weather report 8-11-2018)

smalllogo

The surface air pressure, at the time of my observations, was rising slowly which, in general, is a sign that the weather is improving slowly.

Today will not buck this thought and the day will be a far less wet  than yesterday but there are still a few rain clouds that could just clip our area this morning.  The radar images are currently suggesting that the main body of any rain systems will be either side of our area.  The risk of rain for us this morning / early afternoon is around 55%.  The  main risk will be around 10:00 hours.

Overnight a more defined rain cloud appears to be heading our way and we can expect some more precipitation tomorrow.

Today’s top temperature will be around 12c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 6-7c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SE and the average wind speed will be around 7mph.  Gust speeds could be around 15mph.

Summary for today : Some rain possible this morning but overall the day will be generally dry and mild.

Observations made on 8/11/2018 at 06:34 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.

Rain today? (WS7 weather report 7-11-2018)

smalllogo

At the time of my observations (approximately 06:30 hours) steady light rain was falling and the surface air pressure was reducing steadily.

A review of the radar images suggest that the rain will be patchy this morning before a more widespread band of rain cloud reaches our area this lunchtime.  Rain will then remain a risk throughout the daylight hours.  It is likely to be dry, however, during the evening and overnight.  The risk of further rain beyond 07:00 hours is 95%.

Today’s top temperature will be around 13c and overnight the minimum temperature will be around 6c.

Today’s breeze will be deriving from a SE to SW arc.  The average wind speed will be around 10mph

Looking ahead towards the weekend and, in particular,the many parades that are taking place across our area I am pleased to say that Sunday should be generally mild with only a low risk of some rain.

Summary for today : Rain likely during the morning commute and during other times of the daylight hours.

Observations made on 7/11/2018 at 06:33 hours Hammerwich, Staffordshire.
Temperature : 11.6c; Air pressure :989.7 mb reducing slowly; Relative humidity 90%; Wind  calm; Rain this month : 1.8 mm; Rain this year : 428.2mm
