Thursday 7th October 2021

High pressure remains in control – warm for a few days, then cooler, then (probably) warmer again.

Some cloud, some fog – but some sunshine too.

Thanks to Mark for the photograph.

Variable cloud to start tonight but low cloud will form, with mist and fog patches from the early hours especially in more rural areas. Mild, 14’C.

For Friday we are in this much warmer flow than normal – thanks to ex-hurricane Sam in the Atlantic.

The morning starts with mist and fog in places, low cloud otherwise, a spot of drizzle in places. There will be some sunny breaks in the afternoon but it will remain rather cloudy. Reaching 19’C, maybe 20’C if you get lucky with enough sunshine. Clear spells overnight, mist/fog forming in some places before dawn, but not as widespread as the night before. Down to around 8’C.

Saturday starts with mist/fog in places, sunny spells otherwise. Sunny spells for all once early mist/fog clears but cloud will bubble up – likely slightly more cloud than sunshine overall, around 18’C. A very weak weather front will spread south-east overnight, bringing mostly cloud (some clear spells at first) and perhaps a splash of light rain. Down to around 10’C.

Sunday morning will be mostly cloudy as we wait for the pointless weather front to clear. The afternoon will be mostly sunny, though a bit of cloud at times. Around 18’C, maybe a tad less. Quite a lot of high level cloud overnight, down to around 7’C.

By Monday our area of high pressure nudges west a tad, enough to allow a somewhat cooler northerly flow.

Generally quite cloudy, a bit of sunshine at times and around 15’C. Variable cloud overnight, down to around 8’C.

Tuesday has a teeny bit of uncertainty over the positioning of the high pressure system. More likely quite a bit of cloud, but with some sunny spells and around 14’C. Possible that it may be mostly cloudy, a small chance of a shower – and possible that it may be a bit notably cooler than 14’C too. Uncertain on overnight cloud amounts and hence temperatures – it could be clear and around 5’C or cloudy and around 10’C.

By Wednesday our high pressure system should nudge back east and cut off the cooler air. Assuming so, there will be sunny spells, some cloud, temperatures around 16’C.

Thursday broadly similar, sunny spells, some cloud, temperatures around 17’C.

Friday and into next weekend most likely stay dry with high pressure in control – and most likely stay warmish with sunny spells.

There is a small chance instead of a cooler northerly flow – but most likely that will be well to our east.

Perhaps more changeable the next week – but only very slight and conflicting signals.

Have a good weekend.
