After the unsettled weather of the past few days, and with more rain on it’s way, farmers are keeping their hopes up for better weather in the immediate future.
Farmers Weather expert Dr Simon Keeling said: "There are some early, tentative signs of a build in pressure next week bringing about an improvement in conditions.
"Models are agreeing with our earlier thoughts of building pressure early in September. It may be that by Tuesday next week (September, 1) we will be into a cooler, northerly airstream. This allows a ridge to build west of the UK and Ireland, eventually toppling over the country to bring some drier weather next week.
"However, it is important to stress not everywhere will be experience the fair weather. Western Scotland may soon be back in the rain for example, and we are uncertain as to how long any high pressure may last.
Days will see normal temperatures, but nighttime temperatures could be chilly under clear skies with dew and the possibility of a ground frost."
