Becoming Warmer – Thursday 2nd April 2020 – Sunday 5th April 2020

Hi all,

First month of Spring done, and the last week or so of it spent in ‘lockdown’. Since we’ve been limited to one form of exercise a day and confined to work and home, the weather has settled down and we’ve only had measurable rain fall once in 9 days. No surprise!

After some warm sunshine last week we’ve been back to cloudier skies and colder conditions recently, especially in the wind. We actually had 7 nights of ground-frost last week too (lowest grass temperature being -4.5°C). The rain/wind was looking likely to return this weekend and turn unsettled but now it’s not looking so bad and with a couple of warmer days ahead too. The sun is now as strong as the first week in September. UV levels are now 3-4, which in fact isn’t that strong but still good enough to start a tan if you bask in some sunny periods.

Thursday: Showers moving southeast then turning a little brighter but very windy and feeling quite cold for the time of year. Max 9°C

Friday: Not as windy and a cold start with a touch of ground-frost. Sunny spells and the odd shower. Temperatures still below normal. Max 9°C

Weekend: Becoming warmer but windy

Temperatures rising nicely above average later this weekend

Saturday: Sunny spells and windy. Turning milder throughout the day and staying dry. Max 13°C

Sunday: Sunny spells and windy. A gusty but warm southerly airflow. Cloud thickening later with some rain overnight. Temperatures well above average. Max 17°C

Outlook: A couple more days of sunny spells, after some early rain on Monday. Not as warm as Sunday but still pleasant enough. A little cooler and perhaps unsettled later in the week.
