INTO April we go and British Summer Time is officially here.
After the Saturday-flooding a few weeks ago, we have enjoyed a decent dry spell but our fortunes changed earlier this week as colder air arrived from the north-west with the well-known April showers. Will it improve?
Thursday: After a chilly night with a few wintry showers (perhaps a snow-cover for the tops) the day looks set to be dry with the showers staying away to our north and south. Max 9°C
Friday: Bright or sunny spells, especially towards the east and earlier on in the day. It will also be notably milder than the last few days. Max 12°C
Weekend: Generally dry
Saturday: A chilly start with sunny spells for the morning. Into the afternoon an easterly wind will drag in moisture off the North Sea and push a lot of cloud across the region. Some drizzle at times on the tops can’t be ruled out late-evening. Max 12°C
Sunday: Mostly dry but with a lot of cloud which will break to give us some bright spells at times. Max 11°C
Monday-Wednesday: A lot of dry and bright weather and feeling pleasant in any sunshine. Stay cloud-covered and it will still feel cool. No sign of any particular severe or warm weather on the way. Max 11-13°C
