Brrrrrrr, the blast of cold air from the Arctic arrived earlier this week and although it didn’t last too long it certainly brought a chill to the bone. Grass temperatures dropped to -4°C, we recorded an air frost on Monday night and on Tuesday we saw some towering April showers which brought hail, sleet, graupel, thunder & lightning and even snow. If you’re after some warmth then good news on the horizon.
Thursday: A disappointing day with plenty of cloud that has spilled down from the north. This time the airmass is milder than recently so temperatures slightly higher. However, with little sunshine and some patchy rain it will feel chilly. Max 11°C
Friday: Bright spells with just the risk of a shower here and there. Light winds and pleasant in any sunshine. Max 12°C
Saturday: A dry day with nice bright or sunny spells. Feeling milder. Max 13°C
Sunday: Little change; sunny or bright spells and dry. Cloud could thicken later on in the day with a risk of rain late-evening and overnight. Max 14°C
Bank Holiday Monday: Some uncertainty at this stage but it looks like rain will push up from the south or southwest leading to a disappointing day. Subject to change of course, so look out for Twitter (@ChadWeather) updates. Max 13°C
Beyond the one-day holiday: Hopefully turning warmer as high pressure builds and temperatures into the mid- to late-teens.
