Cold Nights Continue

  • Cold Nights Continue

A fair amount of dry and bright weather around in many areas today as a ridge of high pressure builds in from the west although some heavy showers will again break out over some central and eastern districts. The high hangs on into tomorrow for many after bringing another cold night tonight, but low pressure will be encroaching from the west to bring an unsettled Bank Holiday Monday to many parts although Scotland may get away with a mostly dry day.

Back to this morning and it's a bright and chilly start to the weekend in many parts with plenty of sunny spells around. There are a few isolated showers around windward coasts in the north and west though and as we go through the day a few more showers will break out over northern and eastern regions in particular where the odd one could be heavy with a rumble or two of thunder. On the whole though most places will miss the showers and see a mostly dry day with further sunny spells. Despite the sunshine, it will be another cool day for August with temperatures reaching the high teens at best in the south, but barely making the teens in parts of the north with a light to moderate north/north-westerly breeze.

Any showers will mostly die out tonight and with clear skies and light winds then temperatures will fall quite sharply again with minimums low enough for some frost to form in rural spots, especially across northern areas. Sunday should then be another bright day with plenty of sunny spells but as we go through the day cloud will increase across western and south-western regions with perhaps some showery rain arriving by the evening, meaning that at least Sunday night won't be as cold.

Bank Holiday Weather

Whisper it quietly, but the final Bank Holiday before Christmas is almost upon us so we've had lots of questions about what the weather has in store for us this weekend. The good news is that there will be some sunshine around, the bad news is that there will also be some rain around, especially as we go through Bank Holiday Monday.

The weekend will start off with a ridge of high pressure building in from the west as the area of low pressure that will be bringing a cool and showery end to the week is gradually pushed away to the east. Therefore on Saturday many areas will see a mixture of sunny spells and showers, most of the showers across central and eastern regions as that ridge of high pressure brings drier and brighter conditions into the west. It will remain on the cool side in many areas with temperatures in the mid-high teens at best, perhaps touching 20 in the south.

After a chilly night, Sunday looks set to be the best day of the three thanks to a strong ridge of high pressure building in to bring a fine day with plenty of pleasant sunshine in most areas. The odd shower may break out in the afternoon, but most places will remain dry and temperatures will be a touch warmer as a result.

Sunday night will be cold again across northern Britain but for Bank Holiday Monday low pressure looks set to sweep in from the west bringing freshening winds and outbreaks of rain to many areas although the far southeast of England and northeast Scotland may remain dry and bright for much of the day. Temperatures on Monday look set to be close to normal, but cooler in the wetter regions.

Cool Week Ahead

A rather cool week next week across much of the UK as we draw down north or north-westerly winds thanks to low pressure setting up shop to the east and high pressure establishing itself to our west. If it was December or January we'd be talking about snow, but it's we're not. However you may well see the word "frost" mentioned in some forecasts this week despite it still being summer - that's an indication of how cool the airmass will be.

So some chilly nights and showery days ahead, but the sun is still high in the sky so in the sunny spells it will feel pleasantly warm still, especially towards the south where there will be fewer showers and lighter winds. But is that it for summer we hear you ask? Well no, although the next week or so looks cooler than average, there are indications that conditions will improve for the beginning of September, as allured to in our monthly forecast issued yesterday.

Don't forget, we now issue a forecast for the next month on the 15th of every month here on Metcheck - you can view the forecasts and the results (once they become available) on the page linked below.
