This weekend's weather

This weekend is expected to be largely dry and settled but less warm, with temperatures only hitting about 22 degrees.

Low pressure systems are set to move to the north west of the British Isles and with high pressure sitting to the east of the UK very humid air from the Caribbean is likely to be pulled our way.

In the meantime, there could be some thunder and lightning.

The Met Office forecast this week says:


Rain moving in during the morning, breaking up into heavy, locally thundery showers. Showers moving slowly eastward with wind easing, though perhaps persisting in the east. Maximum temperature 22 °C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Bright or sunny, largely dry on Sunday. Breezy overnight, with rain on hills. Wind easing on Monday. Becoming warm and largely sunny Monday and Tuesday, though cloudier over hills.
