Steamy End to Month – Thursday 30th July 2020 – Sunday 2nd August 2020

Hi all,

July has been particularly poor on the temperature front and not great when it comes to dry weather either, but the month is going to end with some heat and humidity wafting up from Spain.

Here’s an updated image of the temperatures statistics for July vs. previous years.

Woeful Temperature Stats for July 2020

And looking at rainfall…..

July 2020 is wetter than average

**High UV levels still in place so remember sun-cream**

Thursday: Early cloud and a few showers will push north during the morning leaving a day of increasingly sunny skies and much warmer temperatures. Feeling hot and humid by evening. Max 25°C

Friday: A hot day with plenty of sunshine. Cloud arrives by evening with a change beginning out west. Only downside is it will be quite breezy at times. Very humid. Max 30°C

A baking day on Friday. Somewhere in the UK could see 35°C – impressive for a short-lived hot spell

Weekend: Cooler but not too bad

Saturday: Cooler weather will arrive from the west and with it some cloud and a few localised showers. Sunny spells developing later and breezy. Max 19°C

Sunday: Sunny spells and most places dry but a few scattered showers can’t be ruled out. Max 19°C

Outlook: Unfortunately, unsettled weather will return.

A poor July continues – Thursday 23rd July 2020 – Sunday 26th July 2020

Hi all,

No let-up in this grim summer month. Notably, the temperatures have really struggled. I posted the below on Twitter this week and it’s clear to see how disappointing July has been so far.

Thursday: Cloudy with pulses of showery rain coming in from the west. Quite warm considering. Max 18°C

Friday: If you can, take advantage of a breather from the cloud and rain. A decent day is in store with warm sunny spells. Remember sun-cream as UV levels are still high. Max 19°C

Weekend: Low pressure arrives

Saturday: Rain welcomes the start of the weekend, moving west to east. Bright spells and showers follow. Breezy. Max 18°C

Sunday: Bright spells and scattered showers. Again a little breezy. Max 17°C

Outlook: Changeable with showery rain at times. No sign of anything very warm or hot on the horizon. Sad times.

A little warmer with some sunny spells – Thursday 16th July 2020 – Sunday 19th July 2020

Hi all,

Well last week’s weather forecast didn’t go to plan, as high pressure failed to establish itself over the UK for the second weekend running. July is turning out to be a disappointment.

Thursday: A cloudy and generally overcast day throughout but it looks like staying dry, quite humid and warmer with light winds. Chance of some breaks in the cloud later. Max 18°C

Friday: Bright spells developing and feeling pleasant but a little humid. Warmest day of this forecast. Max 21°C

Weekend: Some rain.

Saturday: Any brightness fading as cloud thickens from the northwest. A weakening cold front will bring some patchy rain. Not much rain as the front breaks up as it moves through an area of high pressure. Bright spells later. Max 17°C

Sunday: Brighter with sunny spells. Breezy and fresher for all. Max 18°C

Outlook: Warm at first with some dry weather and sunny spells. From midweek, it looks like high pressure will slip away as low pressure closes in on Scotland. In between we will become breezy and mostly cloudy with a risk of some rain at times.

Drier and Warmer Weather to return but for how long – Thursday 9th July 2020 – Sunday 12th July 2020

Hi all,

The weather is certainly misbehaving and we are definitely suffering now after enjoying a lovely April and May. But, there is some hope on the horizon.

Thursday: Cloudy with light rain or showers continuing for most of the morning. Slowly drier into the afternoon. Max 16°C

Friday: Sunny spells and a heavy shower or two developing, especially so in the east. Max 16°C

Weekend: At last. Much improved compared to recent weekends. Light winds.

Saturday: High pressure is set to build across the UK from the southwest. So the weather will become settled with light winds and bright spells developing but some of us could keep some stubborn cloud. Cool overnight. Max 17°C

Sunday: Sunny spells here and there and feeling warmer after a fresh start. Max 20°C

⚠️ UV levels still high so wear sun-cream.

Outlook: Quite hopeful that high pressure will stay in charge for a few days of the week ahead; so some warm bright/sunny spells and temperatures into the 20s. Question mark over midweek as to whether the high pressure slips back away to the southwest and thicker cloud topples in from the northwest or not.

As ever, thanks for reading. Stay Safe!

Thundery Breakdown – Thursday 25th June 2020 – Sunday 28th June 2020

Hi all,

By heck it’s hot! Not record-breaking like last year but still hot enough for sweaty days and some uncomfortable nights with temperatures not dropping much below 20°C but it’s not lasting.

As always at this time of the year when sunny – HIGH UV LEVELS – Wear sun-cream.

Thursday: Another scorching and hot day with plenty of sunshine. A little bit of cloud might bubble up later. Humid and a very warm night. Max 30°C

Thunderstorms moving NE Friday afternoon as the heatwave breaks

Friday: Well that didn’t last long did it. Another very warm and humid day but cooler. After some early sunshine the clouds will arrive. Thundery downpours are expected to break out during the day with a risk of localised flooding, frequent lightning and hail. ⚠️ Warning in place. Max 24°C

Weekend: Low pressure in control

Saturday: Fresher conditions will be spreading in on a keen southwesterly wind. Sunny spells and frequent showers the order of the day, some heavy and perhaps thundery but not as intense as what’s possible on Friday. Max 19°C

Sunday: Bright spells and scattered showers. Certainly feeling like we are back to the norm with temperatures into the late-teens. Windy. Max 17°C

Outlook: Temperatures will recover a little and it looks mostly cloudy, some sunny spells and spells of showers.

Summer’s gone already – Thursday 4th June 2020 – Sunday 7th June 2020

Hi all,

All good things have to come to an end. We’ve had a great spell of sunny, dry and very warm to hot weather, which ended with us having the sunniest Spring on record. May was also the driest month I have ever recorded. At least the rain is welcome; we just don’t want it to hang around too long. Now Summer is officially here, will the decent weather return anytime soon?

Thursday: Breezy with mostly cloudy skies, although a bright start is possible. Some showers filtering down on the northerly wind. Cool. Max 14°C

Friday: Bright spells and showers, some heavy and most frequent in the east. Cool and very windy later with 35-40mph gusts. Max 13°C

Weekend: Unsettled. Feeling cold on Saturday.

Unusual for the time of year – a deep low in the North Sea feeding down cold NNW winds

Saturday: Low pressure in charge so a completely different set-up to last weekend. Feeling cold in a strong wind with bright spells and showers. Some heavy with a rumble of thunder possible. 40mph gusts. Max 11°C

Temperatures only just into double-figures on Saturday

Sunday: Breezy but not as windy as yesterday and although there will still be some showers around, they are expected to be fewer and overall not as chilly. Max 14°C

Outlook: Looks like a couple of drier days on Monday and Tuesday but after that, sunshine and scattered heavy showers. Temperatures recovering and close to 20°C again.

Summer’s coming – Thursday 28th May 2020 – Sunday 31st May 2020

Hi all,

Meteorologically-speaking summer starts on Monday. But you would be right to think it is already here as we end May with some glorious weather. April was a very dry month (20.6mm) but May has been even drier and with no rain predicted in the next 7 days it will end with a record-breaking 7.4mm. The driest month I have recorded since my records began in August 2012.

Thursday: Warmer air will continue to waft up from the south. A lovely day with plenty of sunshine and feeling hot. Max 25°C

Friday: A light southeasterly breeze and sunny skies. Very warm. Max 24°C

Weekend: Hot and sunny but a little breezy.

Saturday: Sunny spells, with perhaps the odd cloud bubbling up as temperatures rise during the day. Any breeze will be refreshing and hottest in the west. Max 24°C

Sunday: No change apart from maybe not as hot as the wind swings to an easterly and picks up a little. Sunny skies once again with a few fair-weather clouds. Breezy. Max 24°C

UV Levels: The sun is now strong with UV levels above 6 and will approach 7. Sun-cream essential if you’re out and about as you will burn quickly at this time of the year.

Outlook: Little change to conditions with high pressure close by (will drift NE) leading to very warm sunny spells. Temperatures coming down a touch later on in the week as cooler air comes from the northwest. Otherwise staying into the early 20s for most of it. Our gardens do need rain but unless we trigger a shower from this heat, there is currently little sign of any.

Windy and cooler with some rain then decent again – Thursday 21st May 2020 – Bank Holiday Monday 25th May 2020

Hi all,

Our settled weather, which has become the norm since the lockdown started, is set for a hiccup over the coming days, but all looks good for the Bank Holiday. We are starting to need some rain, I for one, am sick of watering the garden but despite the brief unsettled spell, the next 10 days sees little.

Thursday: Not as hot as yesterday. A cold front will be moving east which might introduce some showery rain for a time during the morning. Sunny spells appearing later and still feeling warm. Max 19°C

A deep area of low pressure will control Friday’s weather

Friday: Low pressure to our north-west will introduce a band of showery rain followed by sunshine and showers. It will be notably windy for the time of year with 40mph gusts quite widely. Max 17°C

Weekend: Cooler

Saturday: Continuing windy with sunny spells and a few showers. Again gusts to 40mph. Feeling cooler. Max 15°C

Sunday: Feeling fresh at times in a steady breeze which will still be gusty. Some more showery rain possible but tending to dry up later. Max 16°C

Bank Holiday Monday: Looking lovely with sunny spells and dry. Temperatures recovering too. Max 20°C

High pressure returns from Bank Holiday Monday

Outlook: High pressure to our south will control things; sunny spells and warm with little rain expected.

Slowly Warmer with Little Rain – Thursday 14th May 2020 – Sunday 17th May 2020

Hi all,

Apart from a few showers recently the weather has remained settled and dry but cooler. After a very dry April, not often you get 22 days in a month without rain, May is following suit with only 3.2mm recorded so far. With little or no rain in the coming 7-10 days the watering of our gardens continues. But gardeners beware this Wednesday night will be a frosty one.

Thursday: A cold and frosty start for the early-risers. Dry with variable amounts of cloud and some sunny spells. Still a little cool in the shade. Max 13°C

Friday: Similar day. Chilly start with sunny spells. Cloud bubbling up during the day so the sun coming and going. Staying dry. Max 13°C

Weekend: A little warmer but still not too much in the way of sun

Saturday: A mostly cloudy dry day, but in any brightness it will feel less chilly. Max 14°C

Sunday: Mostly cloudy with a few bright spells. Small risk of drizzle later in the evening, lasting into Monday. Max 15°C

Outlook: Once Monday’s drizzle fades the dry and warmer theme returns with little or no rain as high pressure influences our weather. Temperatures lifting into the 20s which might trigger a shower later in the week.

Warmer again next week. Hopefully into the 20s

From one extreme to the other: Thursday 7th May 2020 – Sunday 10th May 2020

Hi all,

April was the 3rd driest month I’ve ever recorded with well below average rainfall. It was also slightly warmer than your typical April as high pressure mostly controlled our weather. This weekend will see a big drop in temperature.

Thursday: Another warm day with sunny spells perhaps turning hazy later. With slightly unsettled weather out west, so not too far away, don’t be surprised if we catch a late-in-the-day shower. Max 19°C

Bank Holiday Friday: Warm with hazy sunny spells. It’s not expected to be as warm as yesterday but still a decent day and it should stay dry. Max 19°C

Weekend: Big change arriving

Saturday: Make the most of the warmth and especially the morning which will be dry with sunny spells. Cloudier for the afternoon with showery rain spreading south later. Colder overnight. Max 19°C

A blast of Arctic air during Sunday could see a drop of 12 degrees on the maximum temperature from Saturday

Sunday: Yesterday’s rain came south on a cold front and boy will we feel the difference. Cloudy with bright spells developing. A raw biting northeasterly wind and feeling much colder. Ground-frost overnight. Max 9°C

Outlook: Unbelievably another area of high pressure will build over the UK. I think we’ve had one poor week out of seven since the lockdown was put in place. So plenty of dry and bright weather to come, and at first some chilly nights with ground-frosts. Temperatures recovering during the week.
