No Heatwave but Summery – Thursday 27th June 2019 – Sunday 30th June 2019

Hi all,

So it looks like we are finally going to get some sunny and very warm-to-hot weather after what has been a disappointing June. There has been a lot of talk in the media about a heatwave and record-breaking temperatures but there isn’t a heatwave on the way for us. That said, we will certainly appreciate the blue skies and summery conditions.

Depending on slight changes in the wind direction and any early morning cloud the maximum temperatures could vary by a degree or two, but you get the idea, decent weather ahead.

Remember the sun is very strong at this time of the year, so don’t forget your sun-cream.

Thursday – Perhaps cloudy to start, then very warm sunny spells developing widely. Max 23°C

UV Index - Friday

High UV levels – sun-cream at the ready

Friday – Any low-cloud will burn away then becoming sunny, very warm and slowly humid. Breezy later. Max 24°C

Weekend: Hot then cooler

Saturday – BBQ time. Sunny spells and feeling hot but it will be windy at times, especially later. Low chance of a home-grown shower developing. Max 26°C

Sunday's maximums

Sunday’s Maximums – Cooler air spreading East

Sunday – Much cooler as the wind turns more westerly. Sunny spells, and the chance of a shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out. Max 20°C

Outlook: Temperatures returning to normal but it will stay quite settled with warm sunny spells and perhaps the occasional shower. Turning a little warmer later in the week. Max 18-22°C

Decent few days ahead – Thursday 20th June 2019 – Sunday 23rd June 2019

Hi all,

If you’ve been following my tweets you will see I promised high pressure to build towards this weekend and this is still the case. It will be a weak area and only hold its position until later on Sunday, but it’s a window of better weather. June so far has been much cooler than average.

Average maximum temperature in recent Junes. Shows how poor 2019 has been so far.

2013 17.4°C
2014 18.1°C
2015 17.2°C
2016 17.9°C
2017 18.2°C
2018 20.2°C
2019 (up to the 17th) 14.9°C

Average for a normal June is 17.8°C

Thursday: Bright spells and a few showers which could be heavy especially in the North. Max 16°C

Friday: Sunny spells and dry. Feeling warm in the strong sunshine and with high UV at this time of the year you will burn. A little windy at times. Max 17°C

Weekend: Dry and warmer

Saturday: A lovely day with sunny spells and variable cloud bubbling up. Very small chance of a shower. Warmer than recently. Max 20°C

Sunday: Sunny spells then cloud thickening into the afternoon on a freshening breeze. Any rain should only arrive overnight or even into Monday. Max 20°C

Outlook: High pressure drifting away but low pressure out to our West will allow a very warm southerly airflow to develop. Therefore, warm (21-23°C) and a little humid with some hefty showers/thunderstorms and sunny spells.

Becoming Warmer – Thursday 13th June 2019 – Sunday 16th June 2019


The weather jumped forward to late-Autumn this week with spells of rain, cold northeasterly winds and temperatures some 5°C below the June average. Is there any warmth in sight is the question I keep getting asked and my response over the last week has been; ‘wait until the 20th’. Is that the date we finally see some Summer-like weather?

Thursday: Low pressure in charge, so bright spells with some showers breaking out, which could well be thundery and heaviest in the South and East. Max 14°C

Friday: Any early rain clears to bright or sunny spells with scattered showers. Feeling less cold with a southwesterly airflow in place. Max 16°C

Weekend: Showery, warm in any sun

Saturday: Sunny spells but still showers at times and there is a chance some showers could merge to bring a longer spell of rain for a time. Max 16°C

Sunday: Pressure starts to build slightly so more in the way of sunny spells and although we will still have some showers around, there should be fewer than recently. Feeling warmer. Max 17°C

Outlook: Warmer with sunny spells and drier. As the week progresses, low pressure will edge in from the west bringing the threat of some sharp showers and thunderstorms developing during the day. Remaining on the warm side which is welcome news.

Any sign of Summer? – Thursday 6th June 2019 – Sunday 9th June 2019

Hi all,

Meteorological summer is here but no heatwave or BBQ smell in the air. We even missed out on the heat at the weekend. I’m hopeful of some notably warm and dry weather mid-month but as usual, it’s a way off and our British Weather is ever-changing.

Thursday: Low pressure close by to our east so showers likely, some heavy and slow-moving with a risk of thunder but they will be very scattered. Other than that, bright spells. Max 16°C

Friday: Sunny spells becoming hazy late-morning as cloud thickens from the south and rain will arrive for the afternoon with some heavy bursts later. Max 16°C

Weekend: Showery.

Saturday: Yesterday’s rain clears quickly to bright spells and showers, which could be thundery. Windy. Max 14°C

Sunday: Bright spells and showers but these should be well-scattered and less windy. Feeling a little warmer. Max 16°C

Outlook: Unsettled at first with the showery theme continuing but hopefully drier as the week progresses and becoming warmer towards mid-month.
