The lack of rain continues after what was an expectionally dry April where we only received 20% of the month’s average amount. Only 14.4mm of rain fell, and with this forecast in mind, it’s time to start watering those gardens.
High pressure anchored to the north of the UK will be close enough to maintain dry and pleasant weather for the forthcoming days. However, it will be breezy at times and that wind will be chilly. Warm by day but some cool nights where skies clear.
Thursday: A cool breeze from the northeast or east but a dry day with sunny spells after early low-cloud. Max 14°C
Friday: Sunny spells but still with that breeze. Max 14°C
Saturday: A bit more cloud expected but still dry with bright spells. Less windy. Max 14°C
Sunday: Sunny spells and with lighter winds it should feel very nice indeed but there could be some stubborn cloud in eastern parts. Max 15°C
The UV is at 6 now, and the sun is as strong as it is in August, so slap on that suncream.
Outlook: Slowly next week the high pressure will slip away and more cloudier skies will come in from the north with slightly cooler air for time. Apart from the odd shower the lack of any widespread rain remains.
