Welcome news. Summer is returning, after what has been a poor August to say the least.
Warmer, drier and sunnier weather on the way. One last Summer BBQ is in order.
Friday: Dry with a cloudy start. Sunny or bright spells will develop during the day. Starting to feel warmer. Max 22°C
Long Weekend: Summery
Saturday: Sunny spells, light winds and feeling very warm. There could be quite a few cloudy spells at times, so areas seeing more sunshine than others, will see the highest temperatures. Max 23-25°C
Sunday: A perfect summer’s day on the cards. Dry, plenty of sunny spells and hot. Max 24-26°C
Bank Holiday Monday: Perhaps a little cooler but still a great day for a Bank Holiday. Sunny spells and staying dry. Max 23-24°C
Outlook: Remaining very warm with temperatures close to the mid-20s. A showery breakdown is expected midweek, with a few thunderstorms possible. Eventually much cooler with temperatures returning to 19-20°C by the following weekend.
