Thursday 30th May 2019 – Sunday 2nd June 2019

Hi all,

Meteorological summer is coming and it’s turning warmer, but for how long?

Thursday: Warmer air is now in place which will lead to a very mild start but with it a lot of cloud and damp conditions with some drizzle. Cloud will break up into the afternoon in some places and in any sunshine it will feel warm and humid. Some brief showery rain for northern parts towards evening. Max 19°C

Friday: Mostly cloudy and dry conditions with a few bright spells. Again, warm and muggy especially where the cloud breaks. Max 19°C

Weekend: Breakdown on Sunday

Saturday: Bright or sunny spells with some thicker cloud at times. Very warm and humid. Max 22°C

Possible thunderstorms on Sunday

Sunday: Change on the way as a cold front pushes in from the west. Warm to start but then showers will develop, possibly thundery, although these look more likely to develop to our east. Becoming cooler. Max 18°C

Outlook: Turning cooler and windier with showers at times. No sign of our first Summer heatwave.

Turning Cloudier – Thursday 16th May 2019 – Sunday 19th May 2019

Hi all,

I hope you’ve all been lucky enough to enjoy the warm and sunny weather this week. Some changes are on the way but things don’t look too bad next week.

Thursday: We start to take on an easterly breeze which will peg the temperature back, so cooler than recently. Plenty of sunny spells but cloud will tend to increase into the afternoon. Max 17°C

Friday: Mostly cloudy conditions with some showers possible at times. There will be some bright spells here and there. Windy and cooler. Max 15°C

Weekend: Improvements by Sunday

Saturday: Cloudy with some showers for the morning but these should tend to ease away by evening. Max 16°C

Sunday: Warmer and hopefully staying dry with bright or sunny spells developing. Lighter winds. Max 17°C

Outlook: Quite warm with sunny spells. A lot of dry weather but with the risk of a few afternoon showers.

Becoming Warmer – Thursday 9th May 2019 – Sunday 12th May 2019

Hi all,

It’s been a poor week of weather, especially temperature-wise, with us failing to reach double-figures on 3 occasions. Last Friday we only had a maximum of 8.1°C, that’s what we would expect in mid-March! We’ve seen little in the way of warm sunshine but that’s about to change.

Thursday: Low pressure close by, drifting into the North Sea bringing us a chilly northerly wind. Cloudy at first with some brightness developing. A few scattered showers later in the day. Cold. Max 10°C

Friday: Bright spells and heavy showers pushing west to east and easing towards the evening. Max 12°C

Weekend: Improving

Saturday: A cold start then high pressure should start to build from the south. Plenty of dry weather, low chance of a shower, with sunny spells and less cold. Max 13°C

Sunday: Sunny spells and feeling warm. Max 16°C

Outlook: High pressure, at this stage, seems to take hold, leading to dry conditions with sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud. Warm with temperatures in the late-teens and perhaps slipping into the 20s.

Don’t forget your sun-cream as UV levels are now moderate and the sun is as strong as it is in August.

Cooler – Thursday 2nd May 2019 – Bank Holiday Monday 6th May 2019

Hi all,

Some welcome rain arrived on Saturday after a decent Easter but it has still been a very dry month. With another Bank Holiday fast approaching, will we be lucky once again? There’s been talk of a heatwave then frost and snow, so what’s it to be?

Thursday: Breezy with showers at times, some heavy with hail or thunder. As the afternoon progresses the showers will become more confined to the south and east. Max 12°C

Friday: Generally cloudy with morning showers fading into the afternoon leaving a day of limited bright spells and feeling cold especially in the breeze. Max 10°C

Saturday: A frosty start looks likely. Sunny spells for the morning but cloud will tend to bubble up during the day. Chilly and windy but dry. Max 11°C

Sunday: High pressure rebuilds so we lose the cold wind and with sunny or bright spells, temperatures recover, even after another frosty start. Max 12°C

Bank Holiday Monday: Dry with bright spells. Feeling warmer in any sunshine. Max 13°C

Outlook: Dry and pleasant to start but becoming unsettled from the west from midweek with showers at times and turning windy. After the next weekend things are looking up with warmer sunnier weather.
