Welcome Spring Sunshine albeit Breezy – Thursday 17th March 2022 – Sunday 20th March 2022

Hi all,

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.

A frosty start to Thursday.

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.

High pressure in control for the weekend bringing the warmest day of the year so far, plenty of sunshine but quite a breeze too.

Saturday: Lots of pleasant Spring sunshine as we see the warmest day of the year so far. Max 16°C

Pleasant Saturday afternoon temperatures. Of course these are measured in the shade so feeling much warmer in the sunshine.

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.

The final weekend of March also looks fine and settled.
