FRI 30 AUG: UK & IRELAND WEEKEND FORECAST

Written by on August 30, 2013 in United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

Scotland

It’s a damp, largely cloudy afternoon but skies should brighten through this evening as a NW wind picks up. Skies turn clear overnight and with that NW wind, it will feel considerably cooler than of late so you may want to have the jacket handy if heading out first thing Saturday. Lows 3-10C.

Saturday looks like a fairly decent day with the best of the sunshine to start across central and eastern areas while cloud thickens across the far West and Northwest where showers and perhaps longer spells of rain will move in. It will be a cool day with highs only managing 13-16C.

Sunday once again will be dominated but mostly sunny skies the further East you are, always a chance of seeing some showers or longer spells of rain in the West where the chilly NW breeze will be more noticeable. Highs of only 13-16C.

More wet, blustery weather to come Monday, staying cool.

England

It’s a mixed end to the day across England but for most, that mix is with cloud or sunshine, few will be seeing rain unless your in the far North. The NW breeze will begin to pick up through tonight and that should clear skies out, allowing for a cool night with rural parts of the North perhaps dropping to 4 or 5C by dawn Saturday. Cooler than it has been across the South at 11-13C.

Saturday looks largely fine, dry and settled although the NW breeze will become more noticeable as it will feel much cooler than of late. Highs only managing 16 to 20C with a mix of sun and cloud.

Sunday will be a near repeat of Saturday with a mix of sun and cloud, brisk NW breeze with a chance of showers in the far North. Highs struggling to reach between 15 and 20C.

It turns warm Monday as high pressure begins to rebuild from the Azores and that means more sunshine to be had, especially across the South up into the Midlands where it should push back into the 19-23C range.

Wales

After a damp, mostly cloudy afternoon with an increasing westerly wind, tonight is looking better with skies clearing as winds veer northwesterly. With that northwest component to the wind, it will turn cooler overnight as skies become clear. Lows 5-12C.

Saturday looks brighter, drier but a lot cooler than today and recent days. Winds will be brisk out of the NW but bar one or two showers across the North, expect largely sunny skies. Highs well down at between 15-18C.

Sunday continues with the bright theme although there will be less sun than tomorrow but it should be the start of a warming trend which pushes temperatures back into the 20s by Monday. Speaking of Monday, bright or sunny, little rain and highs are back into the 19-23C with humidity back in play.

Northern Ireland

It started out cloudy and damp but as the westerly wind has picked up, so skies have turned bright or sunny through the afternoon, albeit feeling cooler than of late. Through tonight and winds remain fresh, perhaps strong along the North coast and skies will turn clear overnight. Lows will dip away to between 6-10C.

Saturday will be a breezy, fresh sort of day with just an odd shower here and there but these should move along quite quickly in the brisk wind. Feeling a lot cooler than of late with highs of 14-16C.

Sunday should be sunnier and less showery but remaining on the cool side with highs of 14-17C.

More sunshine and a slight shower risk into Monday with warmer temperatures. Highs back up to between 16-20C.

Ireland

After a mixed day of sun, cloud and a few showers, skies turn clear overnight as winds veer northwesterly, drawing cooler, fresher air in from the north. Lows dip down to between 6-12C.

Saturday is looking decent with plenty of sunny spells, mixed with scattered cloud and just a slight risk of an odd shower, more so across West and Northern areas. Highs are well down on recent times at between 15-18C.

Sunday should be a similar day to tomorrow with a mix of sun and clouds and just a slight shower risk. Temperatures look to be on the increase as high pressure begins to build once again from the Azores.

Monday looks sunnier and warmer with highs expected to return to the muggier 18-22C.
