Chilly Start Then Cloudier

  • Chilly Start Then Cloudier

Bit of a change in the weather today as Low Xander heads South tomorrow bringing rain for much of Scotland and Northern England with an ever freshening Westerly breeze across many parts of the British Isles.

More in the way of cloud today than yesterday across much of Northern England as the frontal system associated with Xander pushes South-east. For Central, Eastern and Southern areas it will once again be a chilly start to the day after a cloudless night. However, cloud will once again bubble up with the risk of further showers across Western and later Central areas.

The main rain band associated with Xander won't make a huge amount of progress during the course of the day. It won't be until later this evening and overnight where the frontal system actually gets its act together and swings South across many areas.

Temperatures nothing special. 17 or 18c which is a tad down on the average across Eastern areas with 15-16c across Southern, Central and Northern parts. Areas across Wales and Northern England under the showers may struggle to see 15c, whilst Scotland really may struggle to get above 10c in the rain. More like Augtober than October eh?

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 not...so 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.
