All good things have to come to an end. We’ve had a great spell of sunny, dry and very warm to hot weather, which ended with us having the sunniest Spring on record. May was also the driest month I have ever recorded. At least the rain is welcome; we just don’t want it to hang around too long. Now Summer is officially here, will the decent weather return anytime soon?
Thursday: Breezy with mostly cloudy skies, although a bright start is possible. Some showers filtering down on the northerly wind. Cool. Max 14°C
Friday: Bright spells and showers, some heavy and most frequent in the east. Cool and very windy later with 35-40mph gusts. Max 13°C
Weekend: Unsettled. Feeling cold on Saturday.
Saturday: Low pressure in charge so a completely different set-up to last weekend. Feeling cold in a strong wind with bright spells and showers. Some heavy with a rumble of thunder possible. 40mph gusts. Max 11°C
Sunday: Breezy but not as windy as yesterday and although there will still be some showers around, they are expected to be fewer and overall not as chilly. Max 14°C
Outlook: Looks like a couple of drier days on Monday and Tuesday but after that, sunshine and scattered heavy showers. Temperatures recovering and close to 20°C again.
