First off, still no sign of anything summery and worth a BBQ in the next 5 days. After that, there is a chance high pressure builds in from the southwest.
Today is the 8th day in a row with rain, the 17th day in the last 21; not the summer we hoped for after it had started well.
Short-term; little change.
Thursday: A windy day with frequent blustery showers which could be thundery. The widespread showers should become a bit more scattered later in the day. Feeling quite warm and humid despite the rainfall. Max 19°C
Friday: Low pressure still in charge. Breezy with bright spells and showers, and some heavy. With more of a westerly airflow it will be cooler. Max 17°C
Weekend: Not too bad overall
Saturday: A cool breeze but it should not be as windy as previous days. Sunny spells and just a scattering of showers. Max 16°C
Sunday: Bright spells and any showers should fade by the afternoon as cloud increases with a risk of some light rain from the west overnight or into Monday. A little milder. Max 18°C
Outlook: Rain early next week then hopefully high pressure squeezes in from the southwest and settles things down, so becoming drier, sunnier and a little warmer. BUT, latest forecasts suggest, it will be short-lived.
