A fair week ahead
Things are improving as we go into the middle of the month, with high pressure building across and to the east of Britain. This will promote a warmer southeasterly airflow next week, so temperatures will start to feel pleasant again after recent chilly days. Recent rains have done their job helping things to grow, and the course is now looking very fresh and green.
This weekend sees some showery rain during Saturday. There’s a chance of rain on and off for a few hours, but as the day goes on should tend to move further east across the Peak District. A light northerly breeze around 5-8mph, but it will still feel quite cool, starting near 6C at dawn, only reaching 11C into the afternoon.
Sunday will more likely stay dry all day, with sunshine breaking through more widely. Starting chilly, with a grass frost at dawn, rising to a high of 12 or 13C by afternoon. Light and variable winds.
Most or all of next week is expected to stay dry, with a good amount of sunshine overall. Light winds early in the week, then a fresher east or southeasterly breeze later on. Temperatures nothing too special, but feeling better, reaching 15 to 17C by the afternoons. Slight frosts at dawn are still possible.
Things may become a bit more mixed again later in the month, although most of the rain could be focused on southern counties, leaving northwest England more commonly dry.
