What we need now is dry weather and a good spell of it, after recent bouts of rain, sleet and snow. It’s time to give our gardens and sport pitches a breather! And I have welcome news!
High pressure is set to dominate the weather for the foreseeable, so although to a weatherman the outlook is quite uneventful, we will need to look out for a few hazards. Some areas saw sunshine this week but now it seems the cloud and dense fog will take over.
Thursday: A misty or foggy start and where any clear skies have developed it will also be a frosty start. Sunny spells developing in places, but not for all, as some unlucky few stay stuck under fog or low-cloud all day. Max 5°C but more like 1°C where it stays foggy.
Friday: Very little change, if anything the fog could well be more widespread, therefore sunshine limited and feeling chilly. But importantly, dry with light winds. Max 4°C
Weekend: Dry and misty.
Saturday: Cold but perhaps a bit more of a breeze as this high pressure slips away. Still the risk of fog and a dry and mostly cloudy day. If we can increase the breeze a bit then hopefully the cloud breaks and some brightness sneaks through, but this doesn’t seem likely. Max 4°C
Sunday: It looks like another high pressure will build in from the west to replace the one slipping away. With it, more of a westerly flow, so not as cold and hopefully less in the way of fog. More dry weather though so we can’t grumble although a nearby weakening weather-front could pop-up a shower. Max 7°C
Outlook: Very boring with a lot of settled weather. High pressure looks set to be around for the whole week, so the dry conditions continue, mostly cloudy skies with a bit of brightness. Any breaks overnight allowing for some frost/fog. Very little fluctuation in daytime (6°C) and night-time temperatures (2°C). Hints of something a little colder from the North later in the week.
