Finally, warm summer sun returns!
It’s taken a long while, but after several weeks of mediocre weather, the weather pattern has turned backed to the south, and high pressure extends over the British Isles – just in time for a Bank Holiday Weekend for a change!
Saturday will see lots of sunshine, and just a little wispy high cloud. Any morning fog will soon thin and break up. Southerly breezes around 10-15mph, occasionally gusty. Maximum afternoon temperatures approaching a humid 25C.
Sunday will see more high cloud overall, but it will be another warm and humid day. Possible fog at first again. There’s a very small chance of an afternoon shower, but most likely to day stays dry. Temperatures again into the mid 20s Celsius, with not much wind.
Bank Holiday Monday is expected to have cloudier skies overall, with chance of early fog again. Most likely staying dry, with sunshine breaking through at times. Small chance of an isolated shower. Highs at 21 to 25C.
Next week becomes more complicated around Tuesday-Wednesday, as weather fronts edge in from the west. This may trigger a few bursts of rain, possibly thundery, but very hit and miss. Southwesterly winds are likely later in the week, with mostly dry and fairly warm weather prevailing.
There’s a risk of something unsettled as we turn the page into the start of September, but I would expect things to try and settle down again before too long because these poor Augusts often provide some late season improvements. We might just have another ropey spell to get through first!
