Meteorologically-speaking summer starts on Monday. But you would be right to think it is already here as we end May with some glorious weather. April was a very dry month (20.6mm) but May has been even drier and with no rain predicted in the next 7 days it will end with a record-breaking 7.4mm. The driest month I have recorded since my records began in August 2012.
Thursday: Warmer air will continue to waft up from the south. A lovely day with plenty of sunshine and feeling hot. Max 25°C
Friday: A light southeasterly breeze and sunny skies. Very warm. Max 24°C
Weekend: Hot and sunny but a little breezy.
Saturday: Sunny spells, with perhaps the odd cloud bubbling up as temperatures rise during the day. Any breeze will be refreshing and hottest in the west. Max 24°C
Sunday: No change apart from maybe not as hot as the wind swings to an easterly and picks up a little. Sunny skies once again with a few fair-weather clouds. Breezy. Max 24°C
UV Levels: The sun is now strong with UV levels above 6 and will approach 7. Sun-cream essential if you’re out and about as you will burn quickly at this time of the year.
Outlook: Little change to conditions with high pressure close by (will drift NE) leading to very warm sunny spells. Temperatures coming down a touch later on in the week as cooler air comes from the northwest. Otherwise staying into the early 20s for most of it. Our gardens do need rain but unless we trigger a shower from this heat, there is currently little sign of any.
