The forecast is generally positive for farmers with dry weather and plenty of sunshine expected throughout the weekend going into next week.

 

Farmers weather expert, Garry Nicholson said: “High pressure will build across the country this weekend, resulting in several days of dry weather. Humidity will be low, and sunshine amounts will increase, giving good drying conditions.”

 

Mostly sunshine

 

“Saturday will be rather cloudy as the remnants of a cold front sinks south across the country. There may be a little drizzly rain, mainly over western coasts and hills in the morning. Some sunshine breaking through, mainly in the east. Sunday will see greater amounts of sunshine for most places. Light winds and coastal sea breezes.Temperatures will be pleasant this weekend, highs 17 to 20C north, 21 to 24C south.”

 

High temperatures

 

“Early next week, the wind will become south-easterly, drawing in increasingly warm air from the continent. Expect plenty of sunshine, and a freshening breeze. Temperatures are likely to reach 27 or 28C in central & southern areas by Tuesday, and 30C is possible. Nearer 22 to 25C in northern Britain.”

 

Risk of thundery showers

 

“However, humidity will rise, and by Tuesday night or Wednesday we expect thunderstorms to develop from the south- west. Heavy downpours are likely to spread north & east through mid-week, although some areas may escape the storms.

 

Warm and humid conditions may persist for the rest of the week, with a risk of further thundery rain at times.”
