Spring is here and the weather is finally responding. After an awful February, March is much drier (only 16mm so far) and we can now look forward to a drier, warmer and sunnier spell of weather.
Not quite our first 20°C of the year but it will feel very pleasant indeed over the coming days. Nights will be chilly with local ground-frosts and patchy fog. UV levels are approaching medium meaning you will begin to catch the sun’s rays if you’re out in it for a few hours. It won’t be long before you’re digging out the sun-cream.
Thursday: A cold start with a frost and patchy mist. Sunny spells for the morning then cloud will arrive into the afternoon with some scattered showers into the evening. Max 12°C
Friday: High pressure continues to build across the UK so a lovely day in prospect with plenty of sunshine after a chilly/frosty and in places foggy start. Some of the fog might be stubborn to clear and lift into low-cloud for a time. It will begin to feel warm in the sunshine. Max 14°C
Weekend: I normally say more rain but this time more sun. The only downside is that the breeze will pick up during the daytime which could become a little gusty.
Saturday: Lots of pleasant Spring sunshine as we see the warmest day of the year so far. Max 16°C
Sunday: Feeling warm under sunny skies. Just the chance of some cloud in the east later. Max 15°C
Outlook: The settled weather looks set to continue with high pressure mostly in charge. Just one hiccup could be a few showers on Monday afternoon. Lots of warm sunny spells and dry conditions with temperatures into the mid-teens. An easterly or southeasterly breeze could pick up later in the week pegging the temperatures back a little and dragging in some cloud at times from the North Sea but this all depends on the location of the high pressure.
