Garry’s latest FOREcast

Wild weather returns


The glorious Bank Holiday weekend has been and gone, and we’re back to ‘normal’ as wet and windy weather moves back in from the Atlantic this weekend.


Saturday will start very windy, but dry for a few hours. Southerly winds 20 gusting over 30mph will make for difficult early scoring. Things then go further downhill as rain arrives from the west in the middle of the day, suddenly becoming heavy or torrential as a cold front moves through. This may give very squally winds and a possible rumble of thunder. The ‘good’ news is that it will move through fairly quickly, but probably not before it has spoiled your day… Later afternoon will brighten up with sunshine breaking through and perhaps the odd shower. Winds turning westerly and still quite gusty. Top temperatures around 17C, dropping quickly later, feeling distinctly fresh by evening, and falling into single figures overnight. 


Sunday will be a cool day, with brisk northwesterly winds, 15 to 25mph. After a largely dry morning with one or two showers locally, the showers will build up increasingly into the afternoon, with some lively downpours, hail and thunder very likely in the heftier outbreaks, but quite hit and miss. Top temperatures only around 14C, and several degrees cooler in the showers. Dropping chilly into Sunday night, close to 5C by dawn on Monday.


Next week will be mixed, but not a write off. Monday looks fair and fresh, before winds freshen again, and there rain or showers through midweek. It’s a tricky one later in the week, but most indications eventually build higher pressure and better weather. Fingers crossed the weather sorts itself out for next weekend!

Garry’s latest FOREcast

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!
