It’s now 20 days without measurable rainfall and any rainfall expected over the next ten days will come in the form of showers, which can be very localised, so that count will continue for some. Our weather is changing as we enter the weekend and you’ll certainly feel the difference, especially at night.
HIGH UV levels (7-8) through the forecast….
Thursday: Early cloud will again take time to clear away from west to east. Some sunny spells into the afternoon and still that steady north-easterly breeze. Max 19°C Min 8°C
Friday: Plenty of sunshine on offer again with a breeze but it will again start cloudy. Starting to feel a little more humid later. Becoming windier with 30mph gusts, as the isobars tighten, signalling change. Max 21°C Min 9°C
Weekend: Muggy with the risk of thunderstorms. Warmer nights noticeable.
Saturday: The recent high pressure will now have slipped away to the north-east and allow low pressure to push a little closer to the UK. This will also bring us a south-easterly/southerly airflow and introduce a much different feel to the weather, especially at night as the humidity rises. Sunny spells for the morning with cloud bubbling up into the late-afternoon and evening as thundery showers pose a risk from the south-west. Breezy. Max 25°C Min 14°C
Sunday: Bright spells and scattered thunderstorms. Muggy and not the best for sleeping . Max 24°C Min 15°C
Outlook: Staying warm, temperatures nicely into the 20s, with some sunny spells but with slightly instable air still in place, showers, thundery at times, are possible, but these will be hit-and-miss.
