I’m back, after a wonderful week in Kos with days of hot sunshine, temperatures into the 30s and even a storm one evening to top it all off. I was hoping the weather in the UK would have been awful while I was away but it’s continued to be reasonable. Now I’m back so is the Jet Stream and a change in our weather pattern.
The lack of rain is certainly starting to have an effect on the local reservoirs and gardens. Some welcome rain ahead but long-term for the rest of June I’m thinking not enough. Some media report a 3-month heatwave. They’ve clearly had too much vodka or sun, or perhaps both :).
Thursday: A change to something we haven’t seen for a while. The Jet Stream will bring in an active area of low pressure, a little unseasonal for the time of year. Any morning rain will clear quickly leaving bright spells and a few scattered showers. It will also be very windy, especially during the morning with a warning in place for gusts to 55mph. Apart from the wind not a bad day at all just feeling cooler. Max 17°C
Friday: A quieter day with mostly cloudy skies, some bright spells and the odd shower here and there. Max 17°C
Weekend: Sunday looks the best.
Saturday: Another weather front will come in from the west with a band of rain then hefty showers, some of which could be thundery later. Breezy for a time. Max 16°C
Sunday: Drier with pleasant sunny spells developing. Most places a little warmer and drier but we can’t rule out a scattered shower. Max 18°C
Outlook: Patchy rain and cloud on Monday, after that high pressure will start to build again from the southwest, nudging the Jet Stream further north again, so becoming settled with warm, sunny intervals.
