An early blog this week so detail subject to change with it being a few days ahead. So, as always keep an eye on my @ChadWeather tweets for updates as this weekend’s weather is still uncertain.
More, yes more, national media reports about a heatwave. Now don’t get me wrong, this weekend was looking much warmer and sunnier but this is now not the case and there is certainly no heatwave in the foreseeable.
After a better few days recently, with showers rather than continuous rain, we see a little ridge of high pressure on Thursday. Therefore it will be a decent day with bright spells after early showers. Temperatures not that warm but feeling pleasant. Max 17°C.
The high pressure was initially expected to hang around but no such luck. This means breezier on Friday with cloud spilling in from the west which could be thick enough for some light rain and hill-drizzle. Max 18°C.
It gets a little tricky into the weekend as low pressure to the west and high pressure to the south-east do battle.
Some rain is expected early on Saturday and becoming warmer as we drag in air from Spain. It is expected to become brighter into the afternoon and in any sunshine temperatures will respond and it will feel warm and humid. Max 21°C.
A similar day on Sunday. We should keep the rain at bay to the northwest, so bright spells and any breaks will lead to warm, muggy conditions. Again a Max of about 22°C but possibly higher in sunnier spots.
Looking ahead and next week sees us just staying on the settled side with mainly dry and pleasant conditions. This could easily change if the Jet Stream kicks itself back into gear and it will turn wet again. Equally, high pressure could drift back in and in turn bring very warm conditions. Certainly finely-balanced and keeping me on my toes.
