A late blog posting today as I’ve just returned from a week in Ibiza. Love the place. Bar a few cloudy days to start it was blue skies and 28-30°C all the way. More importantly, it was a drier heat so I missed all your horrible humidity until today. Shame most of us missed out on the storms, although northwestern parts of Lancashire and Merseyside had a soaking with plenty of thunder & lightning.
So, just a quick forecast today to sum up the next 4 days and next week.
Thursday: Bright spells but cloud increasing during the day. Some showers are possible late-afternoon. Warm but fresher. Max 21°C.
Friday: Bright start again. Cloudy with rain slowly spreading in from the west. Some heavier bursts, showery in nature but easing away later. A little humid which might trigger a late-evening beefy shower. Max 22°C.
Saturday: This promises to be a reasonable day. Bright spells and it should stay dry bar a rogue shower. Still pleasant in the sunshine. Max 21°C.
Sunday: A cloudier day. Any morning brightness easing away and a risk of heavy rain arriving from the southwest into the afternoon/evening. Muggy. Max 21°C.
Next week: Bright spells and showers. A fresh breeze at times. Temperatures about average or just below.
