It is a mild but fresh start to the day and this pattern will continue throughout as the jet-stream brings mild air from the south after originally deriving in the north. The jet-stream will then run up the UK from South to North.
This movement will bring a lot of damp air (please note humidity levels of 81% at the time of my observations), cloud (average cloud cover 80%) and some showers.
The first major rain cloud system will reach our area just after 10:00 hours. From there on in the risk of a rain shower is about 35%. It is likely, however, that all areas will receive some level of precipitation today.
Our top temperature will be about 15c but with the wind chill this will feel more like 11c.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SSW and the speed will be around 12mph.
The pollutant level and pollen counts are both ranked as low.
After further overnight rain the radar and satellite images are showing very few large rain cloud systems in our area for the remainder of the day.
The largest risk of some rain is around 11:00 Hours. Any rain that does fall from this system will be short lived.
One thing that is noticeable is that it a lot milder than of late. We can expect our top temperature to reach 15-17c by mid to late afternoon. A great improvement compared to the last two days.
There will be a reasonable amount of cloud cover for much of the day but we we are also likely to see some brighter spells too.
Today’s breeze will be deriving from the SSW ( hence the mild air), however, unlike yesterday the jetstream is also running from the SW to NE across the Uk thus there is no clash of warm and cold air which creates rain. Today’s average wind speed will be around 15mph.
If you are going out for a cycle or walk May the wind be always on your back. Cycling against a 15mph headwind cannot make life easy.
Today’s air pollutant level and pollen counts are both low.
It is a cool but very sunny start to the day in Hammerwich.
As the day passes the cloud cover will increase but the likelihood of any rain today before sunset is only around 15-20%.
Today’s top temperature will be around 10-12c but with the wind chill this will feel more like 8-10c. This is nearly half the top temperature we should be expecting this time of year.
Today’s breeze will be deriving before sunset from the W-NW and the average speed will be around 7mph.
The air pressure will remain stable throughout which, again, points to stable day weather wise.
It is later in the day that we see the change when the jet stream (see image below) moves from the current general West to East orientation to looping from the NE mixing with warmer air from the southern areas. This will lead to wide spread rain overnight and tomorrow.
Today’s air pollutant level is low and the pollen count (tree pollen) is moderate.
It is brightish start to the day in our area but the air temperature is low at only 3.4c. Thankfully this will rise to a maximum of 10c by mid to late afternoon. The air temperature is still well below what we would expect for this time of year.
The wind will be deriving from the WNW and will be light with the average speed only around 5-6mph. This means that we will be getting almost full value from the air temperature.
Looking forward a little there is nothing on the models to suggest a dramatic change in this pattern.
As the day passes there is the risk of localised rain in our area. Any rain that does fall will be light and short lived.
Today’s air pollutant and pollen count levels are both low.
