Written by on July 11, 2013 in United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

Scotland

A fine end to what has been another unseasonably warm day across the majority of the country with the exception of the cloudier, far North and along immediate coasts thanks to an onshore breeze. Tonight will be an almost carbon copy of the past several with mist and low cloud redeveloping as the air cools but staying mild once again at 10-15C.

Tomorrow morning’s mist and low cloud quickly burns once the sun is up and does it’s work and so another very warm day is on offer, perhaps a touch warmer than today at locally 28C, widely 24-26C for most inland towns and cities. A slight risk of an odd thunderstorm popping over the Highlands and Southern Uplands.

Friday night into Saturday sees a frontal system drop south bringing much fresher air in from the NNW. This will bring much cloudier, even damp conditions with highs well down at between 18-21C.

England

It’s lovely end to another summer’s day with perfect conditions for a BBQ or simply sitting outside as temperatures hold up nicely till well after dark. The increase in humidity could keep temperatures up more than previous nights with lows dipping no lower than 12 or 13C in the countryside, perhaps 16 or 17C in Carlisle, Manchester, Birmingham and London. Cloud will once again spill inland from the North Sea as the land cools.

Friday morning dawns with mist or low cloud quickly retreating back to the coast as the land once again heats and throughout the day, it’s quiet, mostly sunny and warm with highs widely into the 22-25C range from London to Manchester but further north, towards Durham, inland Cumbria and Northumberland, well here it may push 30C.

As the core of the high pressure system slides south Saturday, expect the UK’s warmest temperatures to press through the Midlands into the South where highs will widely reach 26-28, locally 30C. Slight chance of a thunderstorm.

Wales

The stunning July weather continues right across Wales and today, like yesterday, it’s be a little more comfortable with highs in the lower 20s with less humidity. That sets the scene for another coolish night with lows of 10-14C widely but a few spots will hold at 15 or 16C beneath clear skies.

Tomorrow shall be a near repeat though temperatures along with the humidity will start building once again. Expect largely sunny skies with a slight chance of a shower over hills and temperatures should reach 24-26C.

Warmer still on Saturday with highs widely in the 25-27C range as high pressure builds again from the north.

Northern Ireland

It’s been an impressively warm day across the country and especially so for Castlederg as temperatures have topped out at 29C for a second time this week, elsewhere 24-26C widely. Slow cooling tonight and little in the way of relief as overnight minimums really only fall to 14C, holding up at 15 or 16C in Belfast and parts of the South and West.

It’s another warm to hot day Friday with a slight chance of seeing a shower or thunderstorm. Mainly sunny though and possibly hazy for all but coastal areas. Highs shall soar to between 24-27, locally 28 or 29C again.

An Atlantic front will draw cooler, fresher air down from the NNW Saturday bringing cloudier conditions with highs restricted to the 18-21C range.

Ireland

The blazing sunshine and heat continues right across the Republic with parts of Co Mayo reaching 28 or 29C this afternoon, elsewhere 24-27C. Lows dip slow and not too low again tonight. Expect overnight minimums of 13-17C.

Another hot one tomorrow with plenty of sun. Highs similar to today.

Warm for more central and southern areas Saturday with highs of 25-28C but it’s cloudier in the North with temperatures restricted at just 20C.
