Light winds for penultimate day Skandia Cowes Week
by Event media on 8 Aug 2008
Today could be one of the lightest days we've seen so far at this year's Skandia Cowes Week.
According to weather expert Chris Tibbs a west to north-westerly air stream with a band of showers will cross southern England this morning but will pass to the east of us. A ridge of high pressure is pushing in from the west and we will see the effect of this, this afternoon and evening.
This means we could see a few showers this morning with a light west to north-west breeze up to 13kts. The wind will however, decrease later and back to the south-west. There is a 50 per cent chance of a sea breeze from the south-west.
The good news is the outlook is for a clear sky tonight for the Fireworks display and, of course, the Red Arrows who'll be turning up at at 7.30. Any cloud should be fairly high and there'll be a gentle breeze. Perfect.
