FRI 21 JUNE: UK & IRELAND WEEKEND FORECAST

Written by on June 21, 2013 in United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

Scotland

Enjoy the beautiful sunshine to end the day as wet and windy weather is approaching western shores. The wet and windy weather is associated with a low pressure system which is set to dominate the weather this weekend and will present ‘typical soggy conditions for the Royal Highland Show at Ingliston. Lows tonight, no lower than 10-13C, winds fresh out of the south, strong along coasts and higher ground, rain will turn heavy, persistent overnight.

Saturday is looking messy with showers or rain. This will be persistent with embedded thundery downpours. Feeling muggy despite temps of only 16 or 17C.

Sunday sees the low push east and so a cooler northwest flow will bring fresher air in. More rain to come with highs of around 15, perhaps 16C, less humid.

Higher pressure builds in by Monday, heralding, drier, less windy and warmer conditions which takes us through much of next week.

England

The warm sunshine of this afternoon will make way to a rather wet, windy, muggy night as low pressure swings a cold front in from west to east across England. The big change should arrive into western areas probably around dark but through the night, winds will pick up and rain will arrive, falling heavy and persistent for a time overnight. Don’t be surprised to see flashes of lightning and rumbles of thunder as warm, humid air adds to the instability. All areas should see a spell of wet and windy conditions overnight into Saturday morning. Lows no lower than 12-14C.

Saturday will see pulses of rain ease through the day with plenty of sunshine appearing for many. Wettest conditions should become confined more to Northern areas. In the sunshine, expect highs of 18-19C.

As for Sunday, winds turn NW’erly and so we loose the mugginess and temperatures into the afternoon drop to between 14-17C. That cooler breeze will draw down showers, always heaviest in the North and West, drier, sunnier in the South and East. Cool for the time of year.

Wales

After a warm, pleasant day, conditions quickly go downhill tonight as a band of rain sweeps in from the Irish Sea, crossing the country. Winds will turn strong for all with gales along the coasts with gusts reaching 50 mph. Rain will be heavy and persistent for a time before showers follow. Embedded thunder and lightning is possible with hail thrown in for good measure.

Into Saturday and it’s a blustery, showery affair, turning somewhat drier and brighter into the afternoon. Highs 14-18C.

Sunday will see a mix of sunshine and showers, winds turn NW’erly, remaining strong. Much lower humidity with the air feeling fresher. Highs 13-17C.

Northern Ireland

It’s been a pleasant afternoon and early evening across Northern Ireland but the cloud and rain now pushing into Derry and the West will be a sign of things to come this weekend as low pressure pushes in. Through tonight and winds freshen from the south while a band of rain sweeps across the country, turning showery later in the night. Lows hold up well tonight at 10-13C, feeling muggy thanks to a southerly flow.

Saturday will be showery with longer spells of rain. Highs down on today and recent days at 13-16C.

Sunday will be showery with NW winds, so it will turn cooler, highs of 13-15C.

Ireland

A warm and pleasant afternoon will make way for a wet and windy night with a stiff WSW wind. Temperatures should hold up though at 10-13C overnight.

Saturday will be a day of sunshine and showers, turning cooler with highs of 13-17C.

Sunday will be cooler still with winds veering NW’erly. Expect sunshine accompanied by showers. Highs 13-16C.
