It has been 12 days since we’ve actually had more than a trace of rain. That should change Friday morning.

Summary

We will gradually cloud over today and tonight and there will be a risk of rain as that happens.  The real rain won’t start until Friday morning, but it will be short lived and the weekend looks mostly dry.

Details

Here’s the Friday Morning (5AM) rain map:

5AM Friday May 23 Rain - Rain begins and lasts until around Noon.
5AM Friday May 23 Rain – Rain begins and lasts until around Noon.
24hr Precipitation between 5PM Thursday and 5PM Friday - Total 16mm
24hr Precipitation between 5PM Thursday and 5PM Friday – Total 16mm

The rain will begin in the morning and last through to around noon with scattered showers after that through Friday.

In other words, it should be perfect Rugby weather!

The total rain for Friday will be around 16mm so enough to give the gardens a good drink.  But we are definitely into the dry season now.

Saturday and early Sunday we should only see spotty showers up until Sunday afternoon when another rain system looks set to sweep through with up to another 16mm of rain through Monday morning.
