Summer finally arrived, so I hope you all have been enjoying the sunshine and hot temperatures. It hasn’t been an official heatwave but it was close. A heatwave must have 2 consecutive days where the maximum temperature is 28’C or above and go no lower than 15’C at night.
So what’s in store for the next few days.
Thursday will have some cloud around at first but this will thin and break to leave a day of sunny spells and light winds. It will again be dry and warm to very warm but not as hot as earlier in the week. Highs of 24’C.
Friday will see it return to feeling hot again and also humid. It will be a lovely sunny day with strong sunshine but the increase in humidity may spark off an isolated storm over the Pennines. Highs of 26’C.
Saturday will see slightly more cloud around and it may give a heavy shower or thunderstorm later on, especially towards the hillier parts of the region but not a high risk. Otherwise, another warm day with some sunny spells but cooler than Friday. Highs of 22’C.
Sunday will be dry with sunny spells but possibly with some early stubborn cloud. Still warm. Highs of 21’C.
Looking ahead into next week it looks like it will continue mainly dry with warm sunny spells but with the odd shower risk.
