Thursday 17th August 2017 – Sunday 20th August 2017

Hi all,

I still have high hopes for it being a reasonable, or even decent last week of August. Fingers crossed.

Thursday: Any early morning cloud and rain clears quickly, to give a warmer day than recently, with sunshine and some showers. Catch one and it will be heavy but they will be well-scattered. Max 21°C

Friday: We swing back to unsettled conditions. Much cooler with frequent showers and quite windy. Max 16°C

Weekend: Sunshine and showers to start.

Saturday: Fresh northwesterly winds with sunshine and showers. These more likely during the morning with the afternoon and evening likely to be drier. Max 16°C

Sunday: A tricky forecast, as ex-Hurricane Gert, now a low pressure, will be sitting to the northwest of the UK. With it comes wind and rain, nothing major, although the rain will be heavy. Some uncertainty on how far southeast the rain will track, so this forecast could change. At the moment, bright spells to start but becoming windy with rain arriving from the west during the day. A little humid. Max 18°C

Outlook: The arrival of Gert will disturb the Jet Stream and hopefully this will lead to high pressure building into next week bringing settled conditions with more in the way of warm sunshine.

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.

Thanks,
Jon

Thursday 18th May 2017 – Sunday 21st May 2017

Hi all,

Well the rain certainly returned this week and all of a sudden everywhere looks green and is growing. It was much-needed rain but it’s already time the sun returned. 

Quite a complex set-up these coming days with timing tricky on when it will rain etc.; as always is the case with showers. 

Thursday: A much-improved day than recently with sunny spells and a scattering of heavy showers. Feeling fresher after some humid days. Max 16°C

Friday: A bright start but with low pressure close by to our west, cloud will bubble up during the day with showers arriving. Max 15°C

A showery weekend
Saturday & Sunday: Bright spells and showers. Catch a shower and it could be heavy with hail and thunder and it will feel cool as temperatures drop. Pleasant in any prolonged sunshine. Max 14°C

Any clear spells overnight will lead to quite chilly conditions and even though the risk isn’t that high, we could see the odd rural groundfrost.

Outlook: Showery then hopefully high pressure will build and kill off the showers and allow for some sunshine. However, it doesn’t look set to last with showery conditions returning. Remaining fresh.

Thursday 11th May 2017 – Sunday 14th May 2017

Hi all,

After only 20% of the monthly average rainfall in April we’re now 11 days into May and we’ve had zero rainfall, but that’s all about to change.

Headline: We lose the very dry and settled conditions that we’ve had for several weeks as the weather changes to come from the more usual west/southwest direction. 

Thursday: Another (last one) sunny day. The sun will turn hazy later on. Feeling very warm and in the early hours of Friday a chance of some heavy showers. Max 19°C

Friday: Cloudy with some heavy showers. These could turn thundery during the day. Some bright spells in between. Much-needed rainfall so we can’t complain. Remaining quite warm though. Max 16°C

A mixed weekend ahead.

Saturday: Sunshine and a few showers of which could be heavy but well-scattered. Feeling warm with any sunshine. A band of more general rain possible overnight. Max 16°C

Sunday: Hopefully not too bad. Bright or sunny spells with a chance of some showery rain towards the evening. Max 16°C

Outlook: Remaining warm with temperatures well into the teens with sunshine and showers. Nights will be less chilly after we experienced some ground frosts this week.

Thursday 9th March 2017 – Sunday 12th March 2017

Hi,

We’ve actually had a couple of reasonable days this week with the recent heavy rain coming overnight last night and tomorrow sees the sunshine continue. 

Thursday: Dry with sunny spells throughout the day. Windy at first but this easing. Feeling pleasant into the afternoon. Max 11°C

Friday: A cloudy day with some hill-fog and rain at times. Most of the rain will be patchy with some drier spells in between. Likely to be drizzly most of the day on the hills. Max 11°C

Saturday: Showery rain likely during the morning but some brighter, drier spells for later in the day. Breezy. Max 10°C

Cooler as the weekend goes on after a mild few days


Sunday: Rain will come in from the west then turn showery and introduce cooler air with some sunny spells. Max 9°C

Looking ahead: Little change at first with similar temperatures and some showery rain. Later in the week perhaps a few days of drying conditions. 

Thanks,
Jon

Thursday 2nd February 2017 – Sunday 5th February 2017

Hi all,

As we enter February our weather looks to turn wet and windy with a chance of the next named-storm; Storm Doris affecting some parts of the UK.

windy-on-thursday-and-friday

Low pressure in charge Thursday & Friday

Thursday: Low pressure arrives from the southwest so expect it to turn wet and windy with pulses of rain. Some drier slots. Gusts to 40mph likely especially later. Mild throughout. Max 11°C

Friday: A brighter start with some sunshine. Now there is some uncertainty about this but another low pressure could track in from the southwest with the potential for some strong winds with gusts up to 50mph. A warning was issued but now has been cancelled as the low is likely to track futher south. So the thinking is, bright spells and drier during the day, winds increasing later with some rain into the evening. Max 9°C

Cooler over the weekend but any frost limited.

Saturday: Cooler with some showers. Not as windy as recently. Max 6°C

Sunday:  A chilly day with a few scattered showers but in between weather systems means we should have a reasonable day with some bright spells as well. Max 6°C

wintry-showers

Colder with wintry showers midweek next week?

Looking ahead: Rain arriving later on Monday then midweek a chance of wintry showers and colder air from the East to finish the week. Finally some proper cold and snowfall?
