Cloudy and very mild for a fair few days. Change later next week.

Thanks to Andy for the photograph.

So our weather is still controlled by this large area of high pressure, now centred to the west of France, which is feeding in progressively milder air. And a lot of cloud.

Today will generally be cloudy but mild, quite windy too with a fair westerly breeze. Some occasional glimpses of sunshine possible, more so later in the day. 12’C. Mostly cloudy overnight, a little drizzle possible at times, no lower than around 9’C.

Saturday will again be mostly cloudy, though the odd glimpse of sunshine at times. Some light rain/drizzle possible at times, but mostly it will be dry. Breezy and mild, 13’C. Cloudy overnight, some occasional light rain/drizzle, down to around 10’C.

Sunday will be mostly cloudy once more, bar the odd glimpse of sunshine. Some light rain/drizzle possible at times, more so in the morning. Quite windy and mild, if not very mild – 13’C, maybe 14’C. Fairly cloudy overnight, though a greater chance of some breaks in the cloud, down to around 7’C.

Monday will be mostly cloudy. Some bright/sunny spells possible at times, still quite windy, still mild – roughly between 11’C and 13’C. Mostly cloudy and windy overnight, down to 9’C.

More of the same for Tuesday though signs of change. Again generally cloudy, though more chance of some sunny spells than of late – also a chance of some light rain at times. Windy and very mild, 13’C, maybe 14’C. Windy overnight with rain erratically spreading south-east, which will herald a change. Around 10’C.

Wednesday may start with the weather front still to clear, so a chance of some showery rain at first – the timing of when this clears is uncertain at this stage. It should clear to hazy sunny spells, and temperatures around 9’C. Overnight should see rain cross, heavy at times. I told you a change was on the way.

Low pressure in control for Thursday and Friday next week, as the jetstream sinks south.

Rain or showers will be the theme, windy at times, and it should be mild. However, it looks like colder air will be trying to spill south at the same time – likely not until after at least one low pressure clears away, but it does bring a chance, I stress chance, of some sleet/snow mixed in as low pressure clears either Friday/Saturday next week. One to watch.

Colder and drier conditions are more likely after that, as I have been saying for quite some time now, with overnight frosts likely.

Enjoy the weekend, and the milder weather.
