A Taste Of Summer Next Week
« on: May 18, 2012, 06:50:14 pm »
The changeable weather will continue during the next few days, but it wont be a complete washout. The weekend will see showery outbreaks of rain pushing north across much of the country, and some of these could be heavy. Temperatures wont be great for the time of year, but they will be starting to pick up, possibly reaching 16C (61F) in brighter spells. Things are looking more promising next week as an area of high pressure to the north of the country extends its influence south across Britain. The details are still uncertain, but we could well be in for our first proper taste of summery weather with temperatures climbing above 21C (70F). ..UP DATE TO WETHER       ]You could be forgiven for thinking it may never happen, but at long last the unsettled and cool weather pattern is relenting and in it's place will be a much warmer, drier and sunnier week next week.
It's high pressure ridging in across the UK which is the reason for the change, it's centred over Scandinavia currently but will ridge in across the UK during the first part of the week. The location of the high is an important one in some respects though, as it means winds will generally from the east and that will mean that eastern coastal counties will see more in the way of cloud at times which will suppress temperatures. Looking in more detail, Monday will start with a fair bit of cloud across the whole country but this will slowly recede away to the east leaving some long sunny spells to develop, and as that sun gets to work temperatures will respond with highs of 17-20c likely - warmest in western and central parts. There will be one complication tomorrow and that's a rain band which will plague Ireland for much of the day and could also bring a shower or two to western Scotland from time to time, but this should all ease slowly as the day wears on. Into Tuesday and Wednesday it's sunshine and warmth for most although those eastern coastal parts will continue to see some cloud coming and going, inland it's a case of good sunny spells and highs up into the high teens or low twenties - in fact by Wednesday 25-27c is not out of the question for some. Into the latter part of the week, subtle changes are likely which could well mean the easterly breeze strengthens for a time which will knock the edge off of the temperatures and increase the cloud in the east. Low pressure will also try to push in from the southwest and although it's ultimately unlikely to be successful, it may well help to spark a few showers in the south and west. All in all though, this week is going to being the first real taste of summer since March - time to dust of the BBQ!

Tonight we can expect that clearer weather to extend further south, covering most of Scotland and Ireland and resulting in a frost in those areas, but staying mild over England and Wales thanks to extensive cloud cover. Sunday will be a dry sunny day in Scotland and Ireland as pressure slowly builds to the north, but it will be another overcast day elsewhere with a little drizzle. The weather may brighten up over parts of northern England during the afternoon. Temperatures will be a little higher than today's (except for southern England), reaching 11-14C in most regions. But it's into the working week when we can expect the taste of summer to really take hold. Monday will see the cloud sheet stubbornly hang on in south-east England but elsewhere it will be a sunny day with temperatures reaching 17-20C in the west, and hitting the low teens near the east coast despite the breeze off the North Sea. Dry, sunny and warm for the vast majority around midweek, with highs of 20-22C likely in western Britain.
