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.

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.

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.

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.

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 warmweekend 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.

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
