So that’s two very warm summer-like spells of weather so far this year. Can’t grumble and no they weren’t heatwaves. So when’s the next one please? I’m getting itchy feet :).
Thursday: Any early cloud from last night’s rain soon clearing and a reasonable day with plenty of sunny spells. Feeling warm in the sunshine. Max 14°C
Friday: Sunny spells for the morning but turning breezy and cloudier into the afternoon. Rain arriving into late-evening and overnight. Max 15°C
Weekend: Much cooler than last week but not too shabby.
Saturday: Sunny spells and temperatures nothing to cheer about, but feeling pleasant in the sunshine again with light winds. A risk of some showers from the south-west towards evening. Max 14°C
Sunday: Bright spells and it should be dry as we keep a band of rain away to our east and showers away to our south-west. Just a chance of developing a shower over the Pennines or hills. Max 14°C
Remember at this time of year the sun is as strong as early-August, UV levels are at 6, so apply sun-cream if you’re planning to be out in it for a while, otherwise you will burn regardless of what the temperature is.
Outlook: Hopefully high pressure will build to the south-west of the UK, so expect it to turn warmer, not hot, with decent spells of sunshine. Temperatures in the upper teens. Variable amounts of cloud at times, a slight breeze and mostly dry.
