This weekend's weather thoughts: 'Here comes the sun...'

 

The record has changed and sunshine is due this weekend in much of England and Wales, but followed with cool and showery conditions next week.

Weather is on the change according to Farmers Weather expert, Garry Nicholson.

 

He said: "This weekend brings dry weather to much of England and Wales with some warm sunshine.

 

"It will feel warm and humid in the south and south-east at 24 to 26C with temperatures closer to 18 to 21C in the north and west.

 

Low pressure

 

"A strong area of low pressure developing over the Atlantic will bring strengthening winds to the north and west during Saturday, reaching gale force in the far north-west into Saturday night, and leaving a breezy day for all into Sunday.

 

"Humidity will drop from the north, so drying conditions will become very good.

 

"Fronts passing across Scotland and Ireland bring some rain during Saturday, most persistent over the West Highlands.

 

"A weak cold front will give patchy rain drifting onto western hills of England and Wales on Saturday night, but amounts very small, barely 1mm for most.

 

Showers

 

"Next week will see rather cool and showery conditions, as north-westerly winds dominate for a few days.

 

"Temperatures will be below average, with some chilly nights expected, particularly in the north. Showers will be very hit and miss, and some places will avoid these, but there will be a risk of some locally frequent heavy bursts.

 

"There are signs of improvement as the week goes on, with high pressure trying to build from the west, so there could well be another useful weather window developing."
