Written by on August 22, 2013 in United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

Scotland

It’s a fine, dry, bright and warm end to Thursday across most of Scotland and that sets us up for a quiet night to come. Mist fog will readily form overnight with patchy cloud. It’s another mild night with lows holding at between 12-15C.

Friday starts off fine, largely dry with sun breaking through but through the morning into the afternoon, thicker cloud with outbreaks of rain push into Western areas but the timing of this feature is uncertain. Central and Eastern areas should see sunny spells and dry weather into the early and mid afternoon and with a southerly flow pushing warm, humid air up from England, expect temperatures to climb towards 25C in a few spots, 21-23C quite widely. Rain which could turn heavy will spread west to east through the later part of Friday.

Saturday starts off wet in the East, dry in the West but it’s an improving picture through the day. Still warm but not as warm as Friday at 20-23C.

England

A warm and dry end to your Thursday across England and this sets us up for a quiet night to come with overnight minimums only dipping to between 14-18C. Expect mist, fog and low cloud to form quite widely overnight.

Friday looks mainly dry to start but through the morning and cloud thickens from the west and by afternoon expect to see rain spreading into western counties. Ahead of this band of rain it’s sunny and very warm sunshine at that. Highs should widely rise to between 23-26C but in the Southeast, don’t be surprised to see a 29 or 30C.

Friday night into Saturday and heavy, thundery rain sweeps across the country leaving a wet first half to Saturday but clearing Eastern areas later in the day. Highs of 21-25C.

Wales

It’s a glorious evening right across Wales after temperatures rose into the mid-20s in a few southern spots. Tonight will see mist and fog quickly form and it stays mainly dry and mild with lows dipping to between 13-16C.

Friday starts off decent with spells of sunshine but cloud and eventually rain will spread into Western areas late morning and by mid to late afternoon, this rain will have crossed the country. Tomorrow evening the rains turn heavy with localised flooding possible in eastern counties. Highs tomorrow will be slightly down on today at between 21-24C.

A better day to come Saturday with sunshine and drier weather, temperatures remain above average for late August at between 21-24C.

Northern Ireland

It’s a fine, dry and warm end to your Thursday across NI but make the most of it as wet weather pushes in from the Atlantic overnight tonight and that rain could turn quite heavy. Don’t be surprised to hear an odd rumble of thunder too as overnight temperatures hold well into double figures at between 13-15C.

Saturday starts wet and muggy but through the morning and particularly into the afternoon and it turns drier and possibly brighter with late afternoon sunshine. Highs of 18-22C.

Saturday will be a much better day with a mix of sun and cloud and highs of 19-22C.

Ireland

After a warm, bright or sunny afternoon and evening across the Rep, rain spreads west to east through the overnight and this makes for a wet start to Friday across much of the country. Overnight lows stay mild at 13-16C.

Friday looks to be an improving day once the front clears out into the Irish Sea by around mid to late afternoon with sunshine likely peeking through over Western parts and here, the warmest temperatures are expected at between 22 and 24C.

Saturday is looking good with a mix od sun and cloud with highs of 22-24C.
