Scattered Showers

Back to the cool and bright conditions in many areas today as the area of low pressure that brought yesterday's and last night's showery rain gradually moves away to the east meaning that north/north-westerly winds will continue to feed in. Over the next couple of days a ridge of high pressure will bring a drier and brighter spell of weather before low pressure returns from the west in time for Bank Holiday Monday.

This morning starts off rather cloudy across southern and south-eastern England with the last of the overnight showers clearing south-eastwards otherwise for much of the country it will be a bright start to the day with plenty of sunny spells around and just a few showers around northern and western coasts. The cloud in the south will clear away during this morning so that by this afternoon most places will see some good sunny spells. A few showers will break out, but the most frequent showers will generally be reserved for northern parts of Scotland where some will be heavy side. Despite the sunny spells, it will be another cool day for August with temperatures reaching the high teens at best in the south, and barely making the teens in parts of the north with a moderate north/north-westerly breeze.

Showers will become confined to windward coasts in the north tonight and with clear skies and light winds then temperatures will fall quite sharply again tonight with minimums low enough for some frost to form in rural spots. However, despite a chilly start, Saturday should then be a bright day with plenty of sunny spells although a few showers will break out over central, northern and eastern regions. Saturday night is then looking even colder with temperatures dropping below freezing across some northern regions.

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.
