Thursday 18th August 2016 – Sunday 21st August 2016

Hi all,

I hope you’ve all been enjoying the lovely summery weather we’ve been experiencing this week. If you haven’t had chance to and you’re pinning your hopes on this weekend, you’re going to be disappointed.

For me this week has been perfect. Early 20s and no humidity to spoil it. We will sneak in another day before it’s all change.

Thursday: Sunny spells will develop after a cloudy start. It will remain dry and be warm again. Make the most of it. Max 22°C

Friday: Cloud will thicken with rain, some heavy spreading from the southwest during the day. The rain will come and go with drier interudes possible. Cooler throughout. Max 18°C

Not great for being outdoors this weekend. Not the best when you have a garden party (and BBQ) planned for Saturday. 😦

Saturday: Windy with frequent showers, and at times, longer spells of rain. Gusts in exposed parts could touch 35-40mph, unusual for August. Feeling cool. Max 17°C


A dreadful Saturday with wind and plenty of showers

Sunday: Windy but the winds should ease later in the day. Another showery affair but these should become more scattered into the evening. Temperatures still below average. Max 17°C


A windy weekend, especially on Saturday. Strongest gusts around the Bristol Channel

Next week: Starting off a little more settled before showers return. A small chance of it warming up in the south but no heatwave in sight.

Next week warm

Some heat arrives next week but it doesn’t look to last long and likely to be confined to the south (no change there then)
