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 6th April 2017 – Sunday 9th April 2017

Hi,

This has to be one of the quietest forecasts for a while. We have high pressure anchored across the U.K. so not a lot happening, however a warm weekend ahead! BBQ time on Sunday if we just hang on to the sunshine?

Thursday & Friday: A lot of dry weather with variable amounts of cloud. Where the cloud gets thin enough, we will see some bright spells and equally, where slightly thicker, then some localised drizzle, especially on higher ground. Feeling cool. Max 11°C

Saturday: High pressure still in charge and hopefully more in the way of sunshine (especially later on) and therefore warmer as winds turn southerly bringing drier air. Max 15°C

Sunday: Looking a decent day but the only downside is the sunshine that develops might become hazy and it could be cloudier if you’re planning to go to the west coast. Warm sunshine developing inland and somewhere could see the first 20°C of the Spring.  Later on Sunday and into Monday the high will be slipping away towards Europe so clouds increasing from the west and becoming cooler. So a good warm spell of weather this weekend but it doesn’t last. Max 20°C

Outlook for Easter: A tricky one as low pressure (rainy) will return but then high pressure (settled) tries to force its way back in. At the moment it looks like Easter will start with some rain at times and cooler but dry up in time for Easter Sunday. As always look out for updates on Twitter at @ChadWeather.

Thursday 9th April – Sunday 12th April

Hi all,

 

After a lovely week of warm afternoons with pleasant sunny spells it’s set to become cooler again over the weekend so enjoy it while you can.


Thursday will be a lovely day and with more of a southerly breeze temperatures will climb. Dry with plenty of sunshine. UV levels quite high for April so suncream required if out all day. Max 18°C.

 

Another decent day on Friday with some hazy sunny spells & warm temperatures. It should remain dry, although with some more cloud possible later in the day, there is a low risk of a shower into the evening. With winds from France, temperatures up to 18°C again. 


Saturday throws a little hiccup into our settled warm spell. A front comes through from the west or northwest introducing more cloud and colder conditions. Some rain is possible Friday night into Saturday morning but not huge amounts then sunny spells. A little breezy and much cooler temperatures. Max 11°C.

 

As we enter Sunday we are likely to see some showers. Early indications suggested a drier and settled day but now it looks like the cool, unsettled conditions will win. Max 13°C.

 

Looking ahead the remainder of the week should be dry with high pressure close by. A sign the weather might become warmer from midweek before it breaks down into the weekend with rain and unsettled conditions arriving.

 

March 2015 Stats: Warmest 14.7°C; Coldest -0.9°C; Wettest 22.4mm; Windiest 50mph; Total Rainfall 106.2mm
