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.
