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 September 2016 – Sunday 25th September 2016

Hi all,

After last week’s storms and high temperatures, it’s been a quieter week so far. This pattern will continue until the weekend. It’s a short and sweet blog this week as I head off to Spain today for 4 days of golf and hot sunshine (so @MeteoGib promises me) :).

Thursday: It will start cloudy, on Autumn Equinox Day, with some patchy rain and mild. This rain will clear to leave a day of sunny spells and quite pleasant. Max 16°C

Friday: High pressure sitting to our south. Bright or sunny spells. Becoming breezy later with a risk of a shower or two. Max 18°C

The Atlantic starts to influence over the weekend.


Rain expected later on Saturday – likely late-evening

Saturday: A dry start with any brightness fading as cloud thickens from the west. It will become windy and rain, some heavy, is expected later in the day. Hopefully, it will hold off until after dark or even overnight. Feeling a little muggy. Max 19°C

Sunday: Once Saturday’s rain clears we will be left with sunshine and showers, some of these could be heavy or thundery. Still breezy and fresher. Max 16°C

Next Week: Details uncertain as the Jet Stream kicks in. Some cool nights where we have light winds and clear skies. By day, some spells of rain with drier intervals. Temperatures around average, maybe above on a few occasions.

As always, our weather is ever-changing. Keep up-to-date with what’s in store by following my tweets via @ChadWeather on Twitter.

Thursday 9th June 2016 – Sunday 12th June 2016

Hi all,

A quick blog this evening after the afternoon was spent storm-watching and seeing a monsoon deliver 15mm of rain; 12.2mm in an hour alone (2nd highest-recorded). It’s not shifted the humid-feel just yet, but that will eventually go as we approach the weekend.

Thursday will dawn misty and mild. Sunny spells during most of the day and feeling muggy. Cloud will thicken and some showery rain is expected later into the evening and overnight. Low risk of thunder and lightning. Still warm. Max 21°C.

A change. If you hate this ‘tropical’ feel to the weather then finally we turn cooler on Friday. Showers will be on and off all day as we enter an mixed spell. Max 17°C.

The weekend is certainly tricky to forecast but it will be unsettled and cooler than what we have become used to.

Cloudy on Saturday with some rain at times. There will be some drier slots with a little brightness but gone are the hot, sunny days of recent weeks. Max 18°C.

Cooler Weekend

A cooler weekend awaits

It looks like Sunday will start dry for most but more rain from the west will arrive. Possibly showery at first then heavier and becoming breezy. Max 17°C.


Plenty of rain expected between Friday and Sunday

Looking ahead and next week will be cool, possibly temperatures just below average at times, with plenty of showers.

Thursday 19th May 2016 – Sunday 22nd May 2016

Hi all,

We’ve had a decent May so far, with some warm sunshine, a few calm, chilly nights and mainly dry conditions. In fact we’ve only recorded 13mm of rain this month but this total is set to rise as we enter a few unsettled days.

A chilly and misty or locally foggy start to Thursday, but once this lifts the sun should break through the clouds and a reasonable few hours ahead. Cloud will thicken later though with rain expected late-afternoon and into the evening. Feeling warm and a little muggy. Max 17°C.

A bit of a repeat performance on Friday. Bright spells for the morning and early afternoon so feeling pleasant and not a bad day. Cloud will increase and the wind picks up as showers arrive into the evening. Some of these could be heavy before general rain arrives. So if you’re off out for the Whit Friday celebrations pack something waterproof for late on. Max 16°C.

weather fronts

Plenty of weather fronts from the Atlantic over the coming days keeping us unsettled

It’s a bit of a complex picture as we go into the weekend. A unseasonal low pressure is set to swing in from the southwest Friday night introducing windy conditions for a time and a spell of heavy rain on into Saturday. This will clear quickly to bright spells and showers later. Feeling cool in the fresh wind. Max 16°C.

It’s the Manchester 10k on Sunday and the wife is taking part, so it means I’ll be dodging the showers which will be heavy. Don’t be surprised to see some hail again with thunder and lightning. The bright spells in between the showers will offer some respite. A little cooler. Max 14°C.

Looking ahead into next week and there were some signs of the weather settling down and becoming very warm as high pressure built. This still looks likely, but perhaps delayed until later in the week or towards the end of the month. Otherwise, it will remain showery with temperatures around average.
