Slowly improving. Slowly.

Thanks to Pete for the photograph.

This evening sees a small chance of a heavy downpour, say 10%, but they should remain to our south. Generally cloudy overnight, still a small chance of a non-heavy shower, down to around 14’C.

Tuesday will be mostly cloudy with the decaying weather front to our south. A little occasional light/moderate rain at times, but dry for much of the time. A little brightness possible towards late afternoon and into the evening, though a stray isolated shower will remain possible – 18’C. Mostly cloudy overnight, again a small chance of a stray shower in the northerly breeze, 11’C.

Wednesday remains mostly cloudy. A little brightness possible in early morning, a little bit more brightness probable late in the day. But for the most part, it will be cloudy, with some showery light/moderate rain around – though very hit and miss. Around 17’C. Some clear spells overnight, down to around 11’C.

For the 1st day of July, we can see high pressure building over Scandinavia – which is where you want it if you want it to be hot in summer. Though perhaps there is too much momentum towards the Atlantic at this time for it to last.

But for now, and for Thursday, it looks like the morning will see decent sunny spells, but cloud will build during the afternoon – uncertain as to quite how much at this stage, anywhere from becoming fairly cloudy to mostly cloudy. Warmer, around 20’C, and a very small chance of a shower. Fairly cloudy overnight, some clear spells, down to around 12’C.

Friday looks the best day for a little while. Sunny spells, quite a bit of fair weather cloud bubbling up with a 15% chance of a heavy shower. Very warm, around 23’C. Clear spells overnight, tending to be more cloud later in the night, 14’C.

Saturday sees a weather front spread up from the south-west. It does look more like it will be a case of showers rather than general rain at this stage, so no guarantee of catching one, but as it will be associated with a weather front then probably catching a few, and probably some heavy ones. But some sunshine at times, too albeit likely hazy and still rather warm, say 21’C.

Sunday, not hugely confident yet, but more likely to be a case of sunshine and heavy showers – perhaps very heavy with hail and/or thunder. Likely warm or very warm, somewhere between 22’C and 25’C.

Next week is too close to call – could be a short very wet spell or could be the start of high pressure building in from The Azores, bring summer proper. If it is the short very wet spell, I’d expect high pressure to build after and certainly by mid-July at the very latest. Well…nothing is certain in weather, but you know what I mean.

Enjoy the occasional nice day!
