High pressure still in control with plenty of dry weather – Thursday 9th February 2023 – Sunday 12th February 2023

Hi all,

Little change in the set up of the weather over the next week. High pressure to our south-east, and it’s a big strong one and it will continue to keep the unsettled weather away to our northwest. Any weather-fronts that do make it down through the region, like the one coming tonight, will weaken quickly and produce little rain.

Very little rainfall over the next 7 days.

Talks of SSW in the weather community at the moment. It’s now looking likely. This doesn’t guarantee a Beast from the East later this month/early-March but it can mean colder-than-average weather. Read more below from the Met Office’s blog. More about the possibility of colder weather from me next week.


Thursday: After a weak band of patchy rain overnight, Thursday looks a reasonable day with some sunny spells and high-cloud at times. Perhaps cloudier towards evening. Breezy and temperatures just above average. Max 8°C

Friday: A mostly cloudy day with a steady breeze from the south-west. A warm-front will introduce slightly milder air. The cloud could be thick enough for some hill-drizzle. Max 9°C

Weekend: Milder but little in the way of sunshine and mostly dry.

Saturday: Again we can expect cloudy skies with hill-drizzle in a few spots. Some eastern parts might see the odd brighter spell which will help to lift temperatures. Max 11°C

Sunday: Little change. A south or south-easterly airflow, with a lot of dry and cloudy weather. Still mild but temperatures could be a little lower than yesterday. Max 10°C

High pressure stays close by as we go into next week without dragging in any cold air from the continent

Outlook: Little change and no sign of anything significantly cold or snowy and the week looks mostly dry. Some signs of more unsettled weather sneaking down from the northwest towards the end of the week.

After a lack of rainfall over the last few weeks, signs of a more unsettled second half to February looks possible.
