Guten tag de Switzerland! It looks like I’ve escaped the better weather in the UK again…bad holiday timing from me though hopefully I will get some sunshine from today onwards.

In the UK, at least our region, the week starts hot with some sunshine – and likely stays dry all week, not always sunny and only hot for a few days. But you can still call it summer.

No photograph this week – I seem to have run out. Here’s one of cloudy Switzerland instead.

We start the week with the Azores high stretching across most of the UK.

Monday starts sunny but cloud quickly bubbles up, probably more cloud than sun for a time. During the afternoon, the cloud will slowly break up to leave a sunny late afternoon/evening. Still quite hot, reaching around 26’C. Clear skies overnight, down to around 13’C.

Tuesday will be similar. Sunny to start, cloud again bubbles up – probably more cloud than sun over the lunchtime period, but again becoming sunnier during the afternoon, and broadly sunnier than Monday. Hot, around 29’C. Reasonably clear skies overnight and a fairly warm night, down to 15’C.

Wednesday is fairly similar to previous days, again it starts sunny, cloud bubbles up – though a bit less cloud than the day before. Hot, around 30’C, give or take. Clear skies overnight and a fairly warm night again, no lower than around 16’C.

By Thursday we see low pressure closer to the north-west of Scotland, and this pushes through a weak weather front – and this will move the heat away.

Hazy sunshine is the theme, increasingly so as the afternoon goes on and the weather front approaches. Still hot, around 28’C. The band of cloud pushes east overnight, fresher air eventually arrives with temperatures down to 13’C.

Friday will be sunny, very warm with few clouds. Reaching around 24’C. Reasonably clear skies overnight, down to around 11’C.

A bit of uncertainty by the weekend, but more likely high pressure hangs on, low pressure staying to our north and thunderstorms stay over the continent.

Broadly speaking, sunny spells and variable amounts of cloud. A bit more uncertainty on temperatures – roughly 20’C to 25’C the most likely range.

Fairly low confidence going forward, though the somewhat more likely outcome for the beginning of July sees high pressure just about stay in control over the southern half of the UK, so more in the way of sunshine, dry conditions and warmth being the general plan.

I shall get back to enjoying the scenery on my train through Switzerland!
