Thursday 27th July 2017 – Sunday 30th July 2017

Hi all,

I’m back from a lovely holiday in Gran Canaria, which brought temperatures of 28-30°C and glorious sunshine, which was very strong (UV 12). I’m missing it already. So, is there any summery weather returning to our region to lift spirits?

Thursday: A day of sunshine and showers with some windy conditions during any downpours. The showers look particularly heavy at times with a risk of thunder and lightning. Max 18°C

Friday: Low pressure still close by, so another day of bright spells and showers, but there will be fewer compared to Thursday and the showers will ease into the afternoon. However, that said, cloud will thicken and rain is expected late-evening and overnight with some heavy bursts. Max 18°C

Showery

A showery weekend ahead with some breezy conditions

Saturday: We return to sunshine and showers and breezy at times. Any lengthy spells of sunshine in between the showers will make it feel pleasant. Max 17°C

Sunday: We go again. Sunshine and some showers and some of them heavy. Max 18°C

Showery

The unsettled weather continues into next week

Looking ahead: Showery or longer spells of rain on the cards with temperatures remaining at similar values; 17-19°C, so definitely no sign of any settled, hot, summery weather returning.

Thursday 13th July 2017 – Sunday 16th July 2017

Hi all,

Apologies the late blog today; too busy packing for Gran Canaria :).

I personally think we’re having a decent summer so far and although this week started off wet (the rain was needed), it’s settled down again and there are some hints that even warmer weather could return next week. 

Thursday: Sunny spells and feeling pleasant. There is a chance of a scattered shower. Max 21°C

Friday: Cloudier with some bright spells but it should be mostly dry after some morning showers. It will be breezy and cooler. Max 17°C

Saturday: Moist southwesterly winds will drag in warmer air again so feeling muggy. Some early rain is expected then it should become drier with some late-afternoon brightness which will lift the temperature. Max 20°C

Sunday: Mostly cloudy, some brightness and the odd isolated shower possible. Max 18°C

High pressure should be there or thereabouts next week

Outlook: High pressure could build in and bring warm settled conditions with sunny spells as we enter next week. If it remains and we drag in air from the continent then expect temperatures well into the 20s.

Thursday 6th July 2017 – Sunday 9th July 2017

Hi,

After a wet, but at times very warm June, we have started July with mixed conditions. 

Thursday: A humid day with hazy sunny spells and a small chance of an isolated shower during the morning. Muggy air drifting up from the south will bring a risk of localised thunderstorms into the afternoon, especially to the east and over the Pennines. These storms are a risk but not certain so don’t be surprised to see nothing like the last time we had a warning in place. Humid. Max 26°C 

Friday: Sunny spells during the morning but turning more cloudier into the afternoon but staying dry. Slowly becoming a little fresher. Max 21°C 

Saturday: Some light rain spreading from the west for the morning. Fresher, breezy conditions follow into the afternoon/evening with some sunny spells. Max 17°C 

Sunday: Bright spells with some scattered showers but very localised. Similar temperatures to Saturday. Max 16°C 

Looking ahead: Bright spells and a few spells of showery rain sneaking in from the northwest occasionally. Temperatures below average, hovering around the late-teens, so disappointing.

June 2017 Stats
 
Max 27.6°C
Min 8.2°C
Wettest 21.8mm

Thursday 29th June 2017 – Sunday 2nd July 2017

Hi all,

Rain, rain and more rain fell on Wednesday making it one of the wettest June days I’ve recorded. The good news is the weather will improve in time for the weekend. 

Thursday: Cloudy with rain during the morning but it should be light and not as persistent as Wednesday. Slowly drier into the afternoon and a little warmer. Max 17°C

Friday: Generally cloudy again with some rain or showers at times. Breezy. Max 17°C

Weekend: An improvement but windy. 

Saturday: Sunny spells and mostly dry. Breezy especially later on and there will be some passing rain during the night. Max 17°C

Sunday: A fresh westerly wind but after any morning rain clears it should be dry with some bright spells. Max 16°C

Looking ahead: High pressure will try and push up from the south but not guaranteed to anchor itself over the UK. Overall a bit warmer and some drier slots with bright spells.

Thursday 22nd June 2017 – Sunday 25th June 2017

Hi all,

After several days of very warm to hot weather and a risk of thunderstorms later on Wednesday, we’re finally back to more accustomed conditions.

Thursday: The humid air is now being pushed away to the east after yesterday’s showers cleared the air. A lot of cloud with some localised light rain or drizzle for the morning but it will tend to become a little brighter into the afternoon. Much cooler. Max 18°C

Friday: Cloudy with some rain at times, clearing later into the evening to bring some drier conditions and perhaps some brightness. A fresh westerly breeze. Max 17°C

Weekend: Bright spells and showers. Breezy.

Saturday: Bright spells and some showers with a noticeable breeze. I prefer this to the horrible humidity we experienced earlier in the week. Max 17°C

Sunday: Fewer showers, in fact some places dry with some brightness, and hopefully not as breezy as it was on Saturday. Risk of some rain late-evening and overnight. Temperatures around normal. Max 16°C

Outlook: Likely to turn more unsettled with showers and temperatures slipping just below normal.

Thursday 15th June 2017 – Sunday 18th June 2017

Hi all,

After a few changeable days the weather warmed up again on Wednesday and the general theme over the weekend is for more summery temperatures to arrive.

Thursday: Yesterday’s warmth and humidity will be replaced by fresher air from the west. Cloudy with some isolated rain during the morning, moving west to east, followed by brighter skies and perhaps an afternoon or evening shower. Max 18°C

Friday: Generally cloudy, some brightness and mainly dry. A little breezy and temperatures around normal. Max 18°C

Weekend: Very warm sunny spells with variable cloud.

Saturday: A cloudy start is expected but some warm sunny spells will break through at times, especially later in the day. Some northwestern areas and along the west coast could remain cloudy all day. Remaining dry with a slight breeze. Max 22°C but localised sunnier spots could go a couple of degrees higher. 

Sunday: Sunny spells and very warm. It should remain dry again and pleasant. BBQ anyone? High UV levels. Lighter winds. Max 24°C

Outlook: A very warm start but fresher conditions following on from the west but it will remain generally settled with sunny spells and just a few showers.

Thursday 8th June 2017 – Sunday 11th June 2017

Hi all,

Welcome to Summer. LOL. It’s been feeling more like autumn this week as an unusually deep area of low pressure for the time of year brought gale-force gusts in exposed places and over 30mm of rain in 48 hours. Locally, in higher locations, 40mm was recorded as well as gusts to 57mph. Impressive stuff. 

Summer hasn’t started well after unusually windy weather earlier this week

Will the real summer be making an appearance soon? It doesn’t look like it as there’s no sign of any prolonged sunshine and heat in the next 7 days. 

Thursday: Cloudy and wet with rain at times. It’s going to be particularly heavy in the morning and slowly more showery into the afternoon. Some of the late-in-the-day showers could be thundery with hail. Feeling muggy. Max 17°C

Friday: An area of low pressure over the U.K. but it will be quite flabby so no issue with the strength of the wind. Sunny spells and showers the order of the day. Pleasant in any sunshine and the showers easing later. Max 18°C

Weekend: Sunday’s the best day

A wet start to the weekend



Saturday: A band of rain sweeps in quickly from the west followed by showers. Breezy at times. Max 18°C

Sunday: A better day and therefore feeling warmer. Bright spells and perhaps a few light showers. Max 18°C

Looking ahead: Breezy with sunshine and showers but midweek onwards should see the weather settle down as high pressure builds. At the end of the week and into the weekend it could start to warm up nicely with temperatures into the 20s.

Thursday 1st June 2017 – Sunday 4th June 2017

Hi all,

After a lovely Wednesday with plenty of sunshine what’s in store as we enter our meteorological Summer.

Thursday: A cloudy day with some brightness especially during the morning. We drag up air from the South so turning humid and muggy. Max 22°C

Friday: A muggy day. Cloud will thicken and rain, perhaps heavy and thundery, will arrive from the west. After a humid start it will slowly become fresher. Max 17°C

Saturday: Westerly winds back in charge so cooler and fresher but with some nice sunny spells and a few showers. Max 16°C

Sunday: Not much change. Sunshine and showers. Pleasant in any sunshine this weekend as the sun is strong as this time of the year. Max 16°C

Outlook: Low pressure to our north at times and high pressure to our south, so basically a sunshine and showers mixture. Perhaps breezy at times and temperatures around normal or just below with some cool nights.

As always the British weather is very changeable, so keep up-to-date with your local weather by following @ChadWeather on Twitter.

Thursday 25th May 2017 – Bank Holiday Monday 29th May 2017

Hi all,

After some welcome rain last week, it’s time to turn up the heat as we experience our first taste of Summer temperatures. However, after initially hoping it would last all weekend, it is now looking like Friday will be the warmest day with a cooling trend over the weekend.

High pressure has built in across the UK as this week has gone on and with it comes some very warm and humid air from the southeast.

High pressure brings us a short spell of hot & humid sunny weather

Thursday: Dry with sunny spells developing and with light winds it will feel humid and becoming hot. Max 26°C

Friday: A little breeze will develop but this coming from the southeast will only help import warmer air. Feeling hot and humid with plenty of sunny skies. Max 26°C

Saturday: Low pressure bringing a showery breakdown of the heat with possible thunderstorms

Saturday: Feeling very humid to start the day with some sunny spells but less sunshine later as low pressure tracks in from the southwest. During the day we can expect a breakdown from the hot and humid conditions with heavy, possibly thundery, showers coming in from the west. Fresher air will follow, which will be welcome. Max 23°C

Sunday: Cooler as fresher air takes over from the west. Some sunny spells but with a risk of showers. Temperatures down on recent days, welcome news for the Great Manchester Run. Max 19°C

Bank Holiday Monday: A westerly airflow across the region. Some bright spells but thicker cloud at times too. Max 18°C
