What a week of weather. A heatwave, the highest temperatures recorded for years and then unprecedented rain on Sunday. Last week saw hot air pump up from France and if 30°C wasn’t enough on the Tuesday we hit the dizzy heights of 33°C on the Thursday. Combined with the humidity, for me, it felt awful.
The heatwave broke down into the weekend and a weather front stalled over the region with places recording a staggering 70-100mm of rain. That’s over a month’s worth in 24 hours.
Thursday: The recent unsettled weather was down to a low pressure which is now decaying out in the North Sea. Expect sunny spells and a few thundery showers, more so over the Pennines. Warmer. Max 21°C
Friday: A similar day with sunny spells and a few showers but fewer than yesterday. Max 21°C
Weekend: Saturday’s the better day.
Saturday: A decent day by the looks of it. Sunny spells, fair-weather cloud bubbling up, warm and it should stay dry. Max 22°C
Sunday: A bright start then mostly cloudy with showers or longer spells of rain arriving in the afternoon. Breezy. Humid. Max 22°C
Outlook: After a nice Monday the rest of the week looks unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain as the Jet Stream slips South. No sign yet, of a decent August.
