Since I last blogged, it feels like it’s never stopped raining. It’s been an awful spell of weather (50mm of rain in the last 6 days) but finally we have some drier and sunnier weather on the way as we enter a settled spell with some warm-feeling Spring sunshine.
Thursday: Rain that moved through on Wednesday will return and be around in the morning but turn patchy during the day with bright or sunny spells developing. A cool northeasterly wind. Max 11°C
Friday: Low pressure moves away and high pressure topples in and starts to develop across the UK. Sunny spells and dry throughout with the breeze easing. Starting to feel pleasant. A slight frost overnight. Max 11°C
A dry weekend ahead. Yes, dry !Saturday: High pressure firmly in charge. Sunny spells after a cold start with a touch of frost in places. Dry and pleasant in the sunshine with another slight frost overnight. Max 14°C but feeling much warmer in the direct sunshine. [In fact temperatures in the direct sunshine will be around 30°C so it will be nice for sitting out] Sunday: The high might slip away slightly. Western areas likely to remain sunnier but cloud could encroach from the east spoiling the sunshine, lets hope it doesn’t. Remaining dry and a slight frost early and later where skies are clear. Max 12°C but cooler where the cloud appears.
Looking ahead: High pressure set to hang around into next week, so more dry conditions and chilly nights. Pleasant by day where the sun shines but still a chance of cloud now and again from the east. Where the sun is out temperatures could get close to the mid-teens.
