Bonus September warmth ahead.

Thanks to Tara for the photograph.

Tonight will be cloudy and mild, a spot of drizzle possible, 15’C.

Tuesday will be mostly cloudy. There should be some bright or sunny spells later in the afternoon and it will be warm, 22’C – though a bit more sunshine and we could make it to 24’C. Mild with variable cloud overnight, 16’C.

Wednesday will again be mostly cloudy. There will be a bit of brightness in the morning, during early afternoon there will be a bit of patchy rain too, and then something sunny to end the day. Warm, around 22’C. Clear skies overnight, down to around 10’C.

Thursday will see more in the way of sunshine, but fresher air around following Wednesday’s weak weather front having cleared south. Some fair weather cloud, otherwise fine, 18’C. Clear spells overnight, down to around 11’C.

Friday will be similar, some decent sunny spells but also some fair weather cloud, especially in the afternoon. Around 19’C, maybe 20’C. Fairly cloudy overnight, 20’C.

The forecast for the weekend is rather different from what I was expecting a few days ago.

Saturday looks fair with sunny spells, a bit breezy but otherwise pleasant. Around 19’C, though a small chance of something warmer.

Sunday sees high pressure building over us, allowing a warmer flow. Sunny spells and very warm – perhaps quite hot, around 24’C – 26’C.

Next week likely starts quite hot. 30’C would not be impossible for Monday/Tuesday, though something closer to 26’C to 28’C more likely.

Likely to see more in the way of showers and more normal temperatures for the latter part of next week, but uncertain at this stage.

September is always tricky to forecast more than 5 days away due to it being hurricane season, and the added complexity they bring into the mix – and it really is the peak of a very busy hurricane season in the Atlantic, so do take anything after about 5 days away with a larger pinch of sea salt than normal.
