May continues to disappoint on all fronts. Below average temperatures and above average rainfall continue to dominate our weather. Some hope on the horizon, but meanwhile more of the same to come.
Thursday: Cloud thickening during the morning with some patchy rain moving in. The rain will turn much heavier leading to a wet and windy afternoon. Unusually windy for this time of year with 40mph gusts in exposed places. The rain will become showery later. Cool. Max 12°C
Friday: Low pressure in charge so windy conditions once more with frequent showers, perhaps longer spells of rain at times, especially early on and later in the day. Feeling fresh for the time of year. Max 13°C
Weekend: A breather on Saturday.
Saturday: Bright spells with just the odd shower possible. Still on the breezy side and feeling cool but an improvement on the last two days. Max 12°C
Sunday: Another low pressure will arrive from the west. It will start dry then rain will spread across the region, although patchy. Showers later. Breezy and temperatures poor once again. Max 12°C
Outlook: Still on for improved weather as we head towards month-end and the Bank Holiday. Not exactly wall-to-wall sunshine but drier, more settled and temperatures recovering. Still unlikely to see 20°C before the end of May, but with UV levels high, and the late-May sun, the late-teens will do.
