Dry with some sunshine and broadly normal temperatures for the coming week, as we slowly creep towards spring.
Thanks to Deanna for the photograph.
Clear skies tonight and temperatures falling to around 1’C – a frost in some places. A small chance of a little mist/fog by dawn but unlikely.
Friday sees high pressure in control.
Long spells of sunshine with a bit of fair weather cloud in the afternoon. 11’C. Clear spells overnight, a frost in places, down to around 1’C.
Saturday again sees decent spells of sunshine. A bit more cloud around than Friday, but reasonably sunny. 11’C. Clear spells overnight, down to around 1’C with a frost in places. A small chance of some fog patches forming by dawn also.
For Sunday we still have high pressure in charge. Any morning fog will clear to sunny spells – though likely more cloud than sunshine in the afternoon, and a light easterly breeze will take the edge off, around 10’C. A greater chance of fog developing overnight, or general low cloud. Down to around 3’C.
A bit of uncertainty for Monday – if fog has formed as I think quite likely then it will take a while to clear, perhaps remaining cloudy all day and temperatures will struggle to around 8’C. Otherwise sunny and 11’C. Chilly overnight, a small chance of fog.
Tuesday is fairly likely to see a return to more widespread sunny spells. Temperatures around 11’C, perhaps a shade more. Chilly overnight, fog possible.
For Wednesday we start to see high pressure migrate further north. A bit uncertain on weather details, but probably fair and around 12’C – a small chance of a weak weather front bringing a bit of rain – but also a small chance of it being sunny and very mild.
The most likely outcome after this, for Thursday, Friday and into next weekend looks fine but becoming colder. Nothing especially cold is expected – say 6’C by the weekend with overnight frosts – though something notably colder (or just plain normal) remains possible.
My Spring forecast will be issued shortly. Probably Tuesday or Wednesday next week.
