After a decent dry spell, high pressure has slipped away and the unsettled conditions have returned and now it’s set to turn colder, so gardeners take note.
Thursday starts bright but heavy rain and gusty winds will spread across the region after lunchtime with a possible squall line. Clearer but colder conditions following on later with some showers. Highs of 11’C.
Friday may start with a ground frost in some sheltered parts followed by sunshine and some blustery showers. Much colder. Highs of 8’C.
The weekend seems to be a slowly improving picture with a risk of frosts on both mornings.
Saturday will still be breezy with more sunshine and heavy showers which maybe wintry at times with possible hail or thunder. Feeling cold, 7’C.
A cold start to Sunday and any showers short-lived. Slowly drier as the day progresses with some sunny spells. Still cold and a moderate frost overnight. Highs of 9’C.
Looking ahead into next week it looks like high pressure will return to settle the weather down with some night frosts followed by showers midweek.
