I’m off to Cornwall on Thursday and the weather is looking ‘good enough’, as I’ll be closer to high pressure, than most of the rest of the UK. No sign of blistering heat and unbroken sunshine for me or any of us as we come to the end of August. Now when did that BBQ last come out?
Thursday: Some showers during the morning moving west to east. These will ease from mid-afternoon with some pleasant sunny spells. Max 19°C
Friday: A lot of dry weather with some warm bright spells and light winds. Max 19°C
Weekend: A lot of dry weather with some bright spells. Quite warm.
Saturday: Bright spells with the risk of an isolated shower. A lot of cloud about but pleasant in any sunshine which will creep the temperatures up. Max 20°C
Sunday: Another reasonable day with some breaks in the cloud allowing for some warm sunshine. Max 19°C
Bank Holiday Monday: Initially it was looking bleak and I tweeted earlier this week that it would be wet and windy. Well it shouldn’t be too bad for the first half of the day with similar conditions to recently. The wind will pick up though and rain is likely to spread in from the northwest into the afternoon. Let’s hope it holds off until evening. Max 19°C
Beyond Monday and the signs are that we will be sandwiched between low pressure (NW) and high pressure (SW), so it will be breezy with quite a lot of cloud. Expect some brightness but also occasional showers. No real change in temperatures as official Summer comes to a close.
