Jon Baylis has had a passion for the weather since the age of six, when he experienced extreme cold winters to blazing hot sunshine and torrential thunderstorms while living in America.
Using his own personal weather station to record statistics including temperature, rainfall, humidity and wind speed, gusts, and direction, he provides forecasts across Oldham.
Here, he gives a brief outlook for the weather over the next few days.
Finally we’ve had our first taste of Spring, well in fact some days felt like summer with a high of 24°C. With UV levels at 6, my tan is coming along nicely. However, cooler weather is on the way.
Thursday will be a decent day after two days of cooler, cloudier conditions. Although slightly breezy, sunny spells are expected and it will be warm. Make the most of it. Max 20°C.
All change as we go into Friday. A bright start then a cold front spreads down from the north introducing a band of cloud and behind it colder air. Generally dry but notably cooler. Max 13°C.
I can promise a settled but chilly weekend which isn’t such bad news. Where we do get some sunshine it won’t feel too bad and despite the cold, the sun is still strong and with a UV of 6. Grab a coat and tan that face.
A cold start to Saturday with a chance of some localised frost. The day will be dry with bright spells and cool. Pleasant in any sunshine. Max 12°C.
Very little change into Sunday, sunny spells, chilly early and late. Light northwesterly winds and at least it will be dry. Max 12°C.
Looking ahead to next week and it will be dry to start but then showers are expected as well as a slow rise in the temperatures and back up to the late teens.
Thanks for reading, Jon
