After the heatwave came the thunderstorms and now much cooler and unsettled conditions are in charge; all thanks to low pressure. Some media report the heat to return soon, but we all know that is guesswork. Nothing on the horizon at this stage to suggest sunnier, summery and hot weather returns.
Thursday: Any morning showers easing to some bright spells and a drier slot. Showers or patchy rain developing into the afternoon, especially to the north but not as lively as Wednesday with thunderstorms unlikely. Feeling cool & windy with 30mph gusts. Max 17°C
Friday: Some unusual weather for the time of year, strong to gale-force winds and heavy rain, will affect southern parts of the UK but we escape that. Otherwise it’s a day of scattered showers, some heavy and perhaps thundery. Some bright spells in between and a little less cool. Max 19°C
Weekend: Showers slowly decreasing in numbers but not disappearing.
Saturday: Cloudy with a few bright spells. Showers are on the decline but I’m sure we will still catch a few today. Breezy but reasonably warm in any sunshine. Max 20°C
Sunday: A little cooler but a similar day. Plenty of cloud, some brightness at times and still the chance of a shower, especially towards the hills. Max 18°C
Outlook: A slight ridge of high pressure will mean Monday should be dry with pleasant sunny spells. Tuesday mostly cloudy but rain later and then the remainder of the week doesn’t look very summer-like at all, with the weather turning unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain. Temperatures remaining cool at times and the potential for a wet and windy weekend.
