Settled and Mostly Dry – Thursday 4th July 2019 – Sunday 7th July 2019


No heatwave or record-breaking temperatures for us last week, but it was nice to feel some Summery weather. Not sure about you but the heat and humidity on Saturday was enough for me (high of 29.3°C) and I was glad it didn’t last. Here’s how we are looking this week.

UV levels high throughout so remember your sun-cream.

Thursday: Sunny spells. It will remain dry and very warm in the sunshine. Max 21°C

Friday: A mostly bright morning with some sunny spells but cloud will thicken from the north-west as the afternoon goes on. A weather front is moving down across the country but it will be weakening all of the while, so don’t expect much rain with some areas staying dry. Max 20°C

Weekend: Settled and slightly cooler.

Saturday: Sunny spells and fresher with a north-westerly breeze. Pleasant in the sunshine and remaining dry. Max 17°C

Sunday: A cloudy morning but a dry day with warm, bright spells developing. Just the low chance of an evening shower. Max 18°C

Outlook: A bit of uncertainty for the rest of next week. It seems that temperatures will stay close to 20°C and with some bright spells. Perhaps a little warmer by the end of the week with thundery showers developing. So again, not much in the way of rainfall.

No Heatwave but Summery – Thursday 27th June 2019 – Sunday 30th June 2019

Hi all,

So it looks like we are finally going to get some sunny and very warm-to-hot weather after what has been a disappointing June. There has been a lot of talk in the media about a heatwave and record-breaking temperatures but there isn’t a heatwave on the way for us. That said, we will certainly appreciate the blue skies and summery conditions.

Depending on slight changes in the wind direction and any early morning cloud the maximum temperatures could vary by a degree or two, but you get the idea, decent weather ahead.

Remember the sun is very strong at this time of the year, so don’t forget your sun-cream.

Thursday – Perhaps cloudy to start, then very warm sunny spells developing widely. Max 23°C

UV Index - Friday

High UV levels – sun-cream at the ready

Friday – Any low-cloud will burn away then becoming sunny, very warm and slowly humid. Breezy later. Max 24°C

Weekend: Hot then cooler

Saturday – BBQ time. Sunny spells and feeling hot but it will be windy at times, especially later. Low chance of a home-grown shower developing. Max 26°C

Sunday's maximums

Sunday’s Maximums – Cooler air spreading East

Sunday – Much cooler as the wind turns more westerly. Sunny spells, and the chance of a shower or thunderstorm can’t be ruled out. Max 20°C

Outlook: Temperatures returning to normal but it will stay quite settled with warm sunny spells and perhaps the occasional shower. Turning a little warmer later in the week. Max 18-22°C

Decent few days ahead – Thursday 20th June 2019 – Sunday 23rd June 2019

Hi all,

If you’ve been following my tweets you will see I promised high pressure to build towards this weekend and this is still the case. It will be a weak area and only hold its position until later on Sunday, but it’s a window of better weather. June so far has been much cooler than average.

Average maximum temperature in recent Junes. Shows how poor 2019 has been so far.

2013 17.4°C
2014 18.1°C
2015 17.2°C
2016 17.9°C
2017 18.2°C
2018 20.2°C
2019 (up to the 17th) 14.9°C

Average for a normal June is 17.8°C

Thursday: Bright spells and a few showers which could be heavy especially in the North. Max 16°C

Friday: Sunny spells and dry. Feeling warm in the strong sunshine and with high UV at this time of the year you will burn. A little windy at times. Max 17°C

Weekend: Dry and warmer

Saturday: A lovely day with sunny spells and variable cloud bubbling up. Very small chance of a shower. Warmer than recently. Max 20°C

Sunday: Sunny spells then cloud thickening into the afternoon on a freshening breeze. Any rain should only arrive overnight or even into Monday. Max 20°C

Outlook: High pressure drifting away but low pressure out to our West will allow a very warm southerly airflow to develop. Therefore, warm (21-23°C) and a little humid with some hefty showers/thunderstorms and sunny spells.

Becoming Warmer – Thursday 13th June 2019 – Sunday 16th June 2019


The weather jumped forward to late-Autumn this week with spells of rain, cold northeasterly winds and temperatures some 5°C below the June average. Is there any warmth in sight is the question I keep getting asked and my response over the last week has been; ‘wait until the 20th’. Is that the date we finally see some Summer-like weather?

Thursday: Low pressure in charge, so bright spells with some showers breaking out, which could well be thundery and heaviest in the South and East. Max 14°C

Friday: Any early rain clears to bright or sunny spells with scattered showers. Feeling less cold with a southwesterly airflow in place. Max 16°C

Weekend: Showery, warm in any sun

Saturday: Sunny spells but still showers at times and there is a chance some showers could merge to bring a longer spell of rain for a time. Max 16°C

Sunday: Pressure starts to build slightly so more in the way of sunny spells and although we will still have some showers around, there should be fewer than recently. Feeling warmer. Max 17°C

Outlook: Warmer with sunny spells and drier. As the week progresses, low pressure will edge in from the west bringing the threat of some sharp showers and thunderstorms developing during the day. Remaining on the warm side which is welcome news.

Any sign of Summer? – Thursday 6th June 2019 – Sunday 9th June 2019

Hi all,

Meteorological summer is here but no heatwave or BBQ smell in the air. We even missed out on the heat at the weekend. I’m hopeful of some notably warm and dry weather mid-month but as usual, it’s a way off and our British Weather is ever-changing.

Thursday: Low pressure close by to our east so showers likely, some heavy and slow-moving with a risk of thunder but they will be very scattered. Other than that, bright spells. Max 16°C

Friday: Sunny spells becoming hazy late-morning as cloud thickens from the south and rain will arrive for the afternoon with some heavy bursts later. Max 16°C

Weekend: Showery.

Saturday: Yesterday’s rain clears quickly to bright spells and showers, which could be thundery. Windy. Max 14°C

Sunday: Bright spells and showers but these should be well-scattered and less windy. Feeling a little warmer. Max 16°C

Outlook: Unsettled at first with the showery theme continuing but hopefully drier as the week progresses and becoming warmer towards mid-month.

Thursday 30th May 2019 – Sunday 2nd June 2019

Hi all,

Meteorological summer is coming and it’s turning warmer, but for how long?

Thursday: Warmer air is now in place which will lead to a very mild start but with it a lot of cloud and damp conditions with some drizzle. Cloud will break up into the afternoon in some places and in any sunshine it will feel warm and humid. Some brief showery rain for northern parts towards evening. Max 19°C

Friday: Mostly cloudy and dry conditions with a few bright spells. Again, warm and muggy especially where the cloud breaks. Max 19°C

Weekend: Breakdown on Sunday

Saturday: Bright or sunny spells with some thicker cloud at times. Very warm and humid. Max 22°C

Possible thunderstorms on Sunday

Sunday: Change on the way as a cold front pushes in from the west. Warm to start but then showers will develop, possibly thundery, although these look more likely to develop to our east. Becoming cooler. Max 18°C

Outlook: Turning cooler and windier with showers at times. No sign of our first Summer heatwave.

Friday: Mostly cloudy conditions with some showers possible at times. There will be some bright spells here and there. Windy and cooler. Max 15°C

Weekend: Improvements by Sunday

Saturday: Cloudy with some showers for the morning but these should tend to ease away by evening. Max 16°C

Sunday: Warmer and hopefully staying dry with bright or sunny spells developing. Lighter winds. Max 17°C

Becoming Warmer – Thursday 9th May 2019 – Sunday 12th May 2019

Hi all,

It’s been a poor week of weather, especially temperature-wise, with us failing to reach double-figures on 3 occasions. Last Friday we only had a maximum of 8.1°C, that’s what we would expect in mid-March! We’ve seen little in the way of warm sunshine but that’s about to change.

Thursday: Low pressure close by, drifting into the North Sea bringing us a chilly northerly wind. Cloudy at first with some brightness developing. A few scattered showers later in the day. Cold. Max 10°C

Friday: Bright spells and heavy showers pushing west to east and easing towards the evening. Max 12°C

Weekend: Improving

Saturday: A cold start then high pressure should start to build from the south. Plenty of dry weather, low chance of a shower, with sunny spells and less cold. Max 13°C

Sunday: Sunny spells and feeling warm. Max 16°C

Outlook: High pressure, at this stage, seems to take hold, leading to dry conditions with sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud. Warm with temperatures in the late-teens and perhaps slipping into the 20s.

Don’t forget your sun-cream as UV levels are now moderate and the sun is as strong as it is in August.

Cooler – Thursday 2nd May 2019 – Bank Holiday Monday 6th May 2019

Hi all,

Some welcome rain arrived on Saturday after a decent Easter but it has still been a very dry month. With another Bank Holiday fast approaching, will we be lucky once again? There’s been talk of a heatwave then frost and snow, so what’s it to be?

Thursday: Breezy with showers at times, some heavy with hail or thunder. As the afternoon progresses the showers will become more confined to the south and east. Max 12°C

Friday: Generally cloudy with morning showers fading into the afternoon leaving a day of limited bright spells and feeling cold especially in the breeze. Max 10°C

Saturday: A frosty start looks likely. Sunny spells for the morning but cloud will tend to bubble up during the day. Chilly and windy but dry. Max 11°C

Sunday: High pressure rebuilds so we lose the cold wind and with sunny or bright spells, temperatures recover, even after another frosty start. Max 12°C

Bank Holiday Monday: Dry with bright spells. Feeling warmer in any sunshine. Max 13°C

Outlook: Dry and pleasant to start but becoming unsettled from the west from midweek with showers at times and turning windy. After the next weekend things are looking up with warmer sunnier weather.
