Easterlies toward Easter
A nagging, cool pattern is expected to continue over the next week or so, as easterly winds prevail across the British Isles. This will add an extra test to Cavendish, making the ‘big’ holes of 10, 11 and 18 play very long indeed. By contrast, holes 1, 3, 5 will play shorter than normal!
There will be generally small amounts rainfall for the week ahead, although skies may be stubbornly cloudy. Some nights will be frosty, especially during the middle of next week when skies clear and winds drop. Temperatures by day often struggling below 10C in the High Peak.
Here’s the weekend outlook:
Saturday starts cool but bright, around 3 or 4C. Cloud will tend to build through the day, but it is likely to remain dry. A few spots of rain may develop in the afternoon. A cool easterly breeze around 10 to at times 15mph, will make the top temperature of 8 or 9 Celsius feel rather cool.
Sunday looks a cloudier day from the word go, and by afternoon, a greater risk of some steadier rain coming in from the east for a few hours, to make things murky and damp. Temperatures a little higher, max 10 to 12C, but cooler if rain sets in. Easterlies around 10mph.
