As Summer comes to a close, I hope you enjoyed the short hot and sunny spell, which saw temperatures reach 29°C on Sunday and some uncomfortable nights for sleeping. Change is now here and it will have an Autumnal feel as we head into the weekend.
Thursday: Sunny spells with the odd scattered shower, especially into the early-afternoon. Windy but pleasant in the sunshine. Max 19°C
Friday: Sunny spells for the morning then cloud thickening into the afternoon with rain expected by late-evening. Another windy day. Max 19°C
Weekend: Cooler and showery.
Saturday: Breezy with morning rain moving SE. Once through, it will brighten up, but become showery. As winds swing to a west or north-westerly it will start to feel much cooler. Max 16°C
Sunday: Plenty of showers on a fresh and gusty north-westerly wind. A chill in the air on the first day of Autumn. A cold night with temperatures well-down into single-figures for some. Max 15°C
Outlook: High pressure close by to the west or south-west will start to settle things down. Expect a lot of drier weather with sunny spells. Temperatures recovering slowly to the seasonal average but still some fresh nights. If the high pressure struggles to take hold then we will end up with cloudy days and some drizzle.
