March is turning out to be a wet month and more rain, in the form of showers, to come over the coming days. After that, not much hope of a drier spell yet. It would be nice to slip in some Spring sunshine for a few days. UV levels are now rising and reached 3 today as the sun gains strength. Almost time for lunchtime sunbathing sessions, if and when, we enter a more settled period. For now, more water for the gardens and reservoirs.
Thursday: After a bright start heavy showers will brew and move up from the southwest. It will also be windy, 30mph gusts and some of the showers will be heavy with the chance of hail and thunder and lightning. Mild. Max 13°C
Friday: Similar day with scattered thundery showers developing and windy, especially gusty during downpours with localised 40-45mph possible. Max 12°C
Weekend: Colder airmass, eventually.
Saturday: A slack area of low pressure out west will bring a less windier day and a mostly cloudy picture. With winds more westerly or northwesterly at times it will be cooler. Scattered showers mean it’s unlikely to be a dry day. Max 10°C
Sunday: Breezy and some bright spells for the morning. Showers for the afternoon, the odd heavy one. Cooler again as winds turn northerly. As skies clear later it could be cold enough for a local air-frost but certainly a ground-frost. Max 9°C
Outlook: The unsettled theme continues into next week with plenty of cloud and showery rain at times. Cool at first but temperatures recovering into the mid-teens later in the week. It’s not a rise in temperature we want, it’s a few dry and brighter days but for now the wait continues.
