The weekly blog returns, after I spent last week on the annual 4-day golfing holiday, this time to Cumbria and north Lancashire. Apart from the odd spit-spot in the wind we managed the whole trip without rain. I’m just glad we went last week and not this. At least next year, fingers crossed, I’ll be back in the Spanish warmth.
So, last week’s warm and mostly settled spell has come to an abrupt end this week, as rain and showers have piled in since Monday.
Thursday: Heavy rain for the morning and windy too. The afternoon sees the rain turn more showery and the winds will eventually ease. Cool. Max 14°C Min 11°C
Friday: Another band of rain for the early hours and this will clear during the morning. Plenty of sunny spells expected after this but still some isolated showers. Windy and feeling fresh. Max 13°C Min 7°C
Weekend: More rain and wind on the way. How windy it gets is uncertain at this stage but the potential is there for our first named-storm of the season.
Saturday: A bright start with a few showers then wind and rain will spread ENE for the afternoon and evening. Potential for gales (gusts 35-45mph). Max 15°C Min 8°C
Sunday: Sunshine and showers. Some of these heavy and possibly thundery with hail. Windy with a risk of gales, 40-45mph gusts, during the morning. Max 13°C Min 7°C
*** How windy it is depends on how deep the low pressure becomes and its track. So keep an eye on Twitter for updates and possible warnings. ***
Outlook: Remaining unsettled with further rain or showers. With hurricane Sam affecting the Jet Stream there is a chance of high pressure building later in the week, bringing sunshine and a respite from the rain, but don’t hold your breath, as this could be short-lived and restricted to southern parts of the UK.
