You guys must be loving me at the moment. It’s not often I deliver good news but it’s another blog and another week of decent summer-like weather on the way, but, we have to discount Friday in that claim.
Remember at this time of year the sun is as strong as mid-July, UV levels are HIGH at 6/7, 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.
Thursday: Warm with bright spells and dry. We will still have the steady breeze from the northeast and with that, more cloud than we have been seeing recently. That said, it will still be feeling pleasant in any sunshine. Max 20°C
Friday: A day off from the decent weather. Cloudy with rain during the morning coming in from the east. Some of this could be heavy and thundery. A bit brighter later but with a few scattered beefy showers. Much cooler. Max 15°C
Extended Weekend: Sun-cream and BBQs are on the menu.
Saturday: Some cloud leftover from yesterday with perhaps a scattered early shower to start the day. The sun will get to work on this cloud, allowing it to break up and return us to what we are getting accustomed to. Sunny spells and dry for the rest of the day. Also, notably warmer again but still breezy. Max 20°C
Sunday: Sunny and dry with temperatures rising. Feeling muggy and humid later as we drag in air from France. Hot in places. Max 24°C but this could go a degree or two higher.
Bank Holiday Monday: Very warm with plenty of strong sunshine. A chance of evening thunderstorms breaking out [one to watch]. Max 23°C
Throughout the forecast we will keep a steady breeze which will help you to cool off during the day but also make it a little cool in some of the evenings.
Outlook: Downpours and thunderstorms will introduce fresher air but this should be followed by sunny spells and mainly dry conditions once again.
