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.
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.
