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.
Off Trick-or-treating or to a bonfire this weekend, then it’s not looking too bad.
Thursday will start wet with a band of heavy rain moving from west to east. The afternoon will be much better with sunny spells and drier conditions. Max 13°C.
We drag up very mild air again on Friday and after a few morning showers the afternoon should be drier but staying generally cloudy. Temperature above average. Max 16°C.
Similar to the last two days sees Saturday start cloudy with a little rain or drizzle about. This soon clears to a day of bright or sunny spells. Light winds as a ridge of high pressure builds from the south. Max 14°C.
Sunday is likely to start misty or foggy and a little chilly. Not a bad day in store with bright spells at times. Light winds and a little cooler. Max 13°C.
Next week doesn’t see much change with mostly dry weather around, some milder spells with light winds. Certainly no sign of an early winter chill.
Thanks for reading, Jon
