Six days of summer! Well, much warmer, mostly dry, fairly sunny…not perfection but it will more than do!

Thanks to Tracy for the photograph…been in my inbox for some time!

So the general picture sees high pressure building – not the strongest or cleanest build, but sufficient for broadly pleasant weather.

Sunny this morning, cloud will bubble up from around lunchtime – likely more cloud than sunshine in the afternoon but still some sunny spells. Around a 20% chance of a shower. Warm, 20’C or so. Clear skies for most of the night, though some mist/fog/low cloud spreading in by dawn. Down to around 7’C.

Wednesday starts cloudy and misty, perhaps some fog. This fairly quickly lifts into sunny spells and fair-weather cloud for the rest of the day. Warm, 20’C, maybe 21’C – some high cloud later in the day too making it a bit hazier. Quite a bit of high cloud overnight, one or two mist/fog patches by dawn in more sheltered spots, and down to around 9’C.

Thursday starts fairly sunny. Again some high cloud around and quite a bit of fair-weather cloud, but staying pleasant with sunny spells. Warm, 22’C should be reached. High cloud overnight, a small chance of mist/fog patches by dawn, down to around 9’C.

Friday sees hazy sunshine, with high cloud dominant most of the day, and a bit of fair-weather cloud. Warm, 22’C, maybe 23’C. Clear skies overnight, down to around 10’C.

Gosh it’s a while since the forecast has been this quick to write!

By Saturday high pressure is weakening, and low pressure is just starting to nudge in – but we’ll score a pleasant weekend first. OMG, I know.

Good spells of sunshine – some fair-weather cloud likely to bubble up but overall very pleasant. Very warm, 23’C, maybe 24’C – I wouldn’t rule out a 25’C. Mostly clear skies overnight, down to around 10’C.

Sunday again sees good spells of sunshine, just a bit of fair-weather cloud bubbling up. I cannot totally rule out an afternoon shower, but unlikely as it stands. More likely around 24’C or 25’C – though a degree or two either way possible.

Rain and showers return next week, perhaps with thunderstorms. Temperatures lower, but still warmish.

Enjoy whilst you can!
