Bonfire Weekend 2017

Written by on November 3, 2017 in Autumn 2017, Summer 2017, United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

Last year saw a chilly Bonfire weekend and it’s looking chilly once again this year with Saturday night and particularly for Bonfire night looking to turn frosty. Over the next 24 hours we’ll see a cold front drop south and merge with a tangle of fronts lifting up from the south. This shall make for a messy open to the weekend but things clear, quieten down and turn cold during the second half.

Saturday starts on a very wet note across much of England and Wales, showery further north with sunny spells and a stiffening westerly wind. Through Saturday the rain clears England and Wales and for Northern Ireland and Scotland it’s a story of sunshine and cool, blustery showers. Temps 6 to 13C by day but down to 2 to 8C into the evening.

During Sunday it’s clearer, drier, brighter but cooler thanks to a northerly air flow and building high pressure. That high drops the wind and clears out the clouds by dark and so the temps crash quickly. Even by 7-8pm Sunday night when many Bonfire and fireworks displays are well underway, temps will be in the 0 to +3C range for parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and N England, 3-6C further south.
