Farmer frustration continues as more rain hits the UK

 

It is seeming impossible for farmers to find a window of opportunity to make hay and silage, and the next ten days is to be no different.

Farmers Weather expert, Garry Nicholson said: "A rather frustrating time for those doing hay and silage over the next week to 10 days, as a south-westerly weather pattern brings periods of rain or showers in from the Atlantic.

 

"The west and north-west will see the wettest conditions, whilst the south & east will be drier, although most of us can expect some rain at times.

 

"It will be humid across central and southern Britain over the next few days. Some rain early on Friday will clear away eastwards.

 

Heavy rain

 

"By Saturday, heavier falls of rain threaten the west and north, and may extend to Wales and the Midlands, although the far south and south-east should escape the worst.

 

"By Sunday onward, cooler and fresher air will return from the west, and a breeze will help with drying, although we are still expecting periods of showers to continue into early next week.

 

"Later next week, high pressure may build briefly across the south, giving some drier days, but fronts continue to threaten rain in the west and north.

 

"Heading into the second half of July, we are more optimistic for some improvement, although we fear it is still not brilliant overall, and it looks like windows of three to four days of fair weather, mixed with a few days of rain."
