Yet more wind and rain – Thursday 5th January 2023 – Sunday 8th January 2023

Hi all,

Happy New Year to you all and all the best for 2023.

I’ve not had time to collate the statistics for 2022 yet and I’m still working on putting together all of my weather data since August 2012 which will be made available for anyone to view. Watch this space.

As for the here and now the new year has started off how 2022 ended. Mild, wet and occasionally windy. It’s been relentless this rain and today is day 20 in a row of measurable rainfall and that number will continue to rise.

Thursday: A bright start but cloudier as the day progresses with a few showers. Rain overnight. Breezy. Mild. Max 12°C

Friday: After overnight rain it will turn drier with a few bright spells, so a better day. A little cooler. Breezy. Cloudier towards evening. Max 9°C

Weekend: Little change.

Saturday: Cloudy with a band of heavy rain moving through during the morning, which could be squally. Bright spells and some showers follow. Windy at times and still mild. Max 10°C

Sunday: An area of low pressure will dominate so it’s a windy and very showery day, perhaps with hail and thunder and lightning. A little cooler. Max 8°C

Outlook: The Jet Stream will remain active and control our weather driving areas of low pressure across the Atlantic to our shores. So windy at times with spells of rain or showers and mild. Odd cooler slot in between weather systems. Hints of something more settled and cooler after that but certainly no sign of any wintry conditions.

Low pressure after low pressure bringing rain and wind over the next 7-10 days
