Halfway through May and no sign of an early summer. Quite the opposite as next week looks cool and showery as well as breezy.
Thursday was looking wet but with rain swinging across southern England rather than northern England it looks like we will miss it and just have a dry day with bright spells. Max 12°C.
As we enter Friday the low pressure to the south moves away and a brief ridge of high pressure arrives. A settled day with bright spells but cloudier later with light rain overnight. Max 14°C.
The weekend looks better on Saturday when we can expect bright or sunny spells but still temperatures disappointing for the time of year. It should though remain dry. Max 14°C.
Sunday sees a change as winds increase. Any bright spells in the morning being replaced by cloudier conditions into the afternoon and showery rain becomes a risk. Feeling cool. Max 13°C.
Looking ahead, the Atlantic looks set to rule our weather with some showery rain at times and a cool west or even northwesterly airflow. No sign of summer regardless what the media say. 😉
