We have a sniff of easterly winds on the way and that has meant only one thing this week… the media going to town on snow is on its way, not to mention the Beast from the East. One thing for sure, November is looking like a very dry month, but snow?
Thursday: The mildest day of the forecast with southwesterly winds putting the temperatures up into the mid-teens. A mostly cloudy start with a few mist and fog patches but where this breaks during the day we will see some sunshine. Dry throughout but a little breezy. Max 15°C
Friday: Again a misty start, but the cloud is not expected to break up as much as Thursday so less in the way of sunshine. Winds now southerly so temperatures not too bad but a little down on yesterday with more in the way of cloud. Dry. Max 14°C
Weekend: Slowly cooler but sunnier and staying dry
Saturday: We see a change in wind direction, which mean temperatures will slowly drop during the day. Still dry but good news, more in the way of sunshine, as drier air feeds in from the east. Keen breeze. Max 11°C
Sunday: Bright spells but a sharp easterly wind making it feel quite chilly. Dry once more. Max 10°C
Outlook: Easterly and northeasterly winds take charge feeding in cold air from the continent. High pressure will be anchored to the northeast of the UK, keeping this weather pattern in place for the week. As it gets colder there will be a chance of some overnight frosts where the cloud breaks and winds fall light. Temperatures struggling to maximums of 7-8°C but no snow.
Beyond: There are signs that this colder-than-average weather will continue to the end of the month but this is a long way off and subject to change. If the charts are to be believed for the last week in November, then some snow showers from the east are possible. Now where do I put my pinch of salt. 🙂
