Weather guide Monday 23rd to Sunday 29th June 2014



[b]Headline: Mostly dry and rather warm with sunny spells; more unsettled with showers in places from Thursday/ Friday[/b]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)][font=Helvetica]We saw some warm and reasonably sunny weather at times last week, although sometimes it was cloudier and cooler, especially for the Midlands early in the week. HIghest temperatures over the past week include 22.4c Trawsgoed on Tuesday, 24.3c Pembrey Sands, 22.8c Llanwnnen and 22.6c Coventry on Wednesday, then Hereford 23.7c, Church Lawford 22.9c, Mumbles 22c on Friday - all well into the warm category for June. Virtually a bone dry week too, just a little drizzle in places on a few days, but many places having no measurable rain. Cool nights though this weekend, quite close to a grass frost for prone Welsh spots, the low at dawn today just 3.5c at 4 feet above the lawn here and 4.2c at Trawscoed, only Cairngorm colder than Llanwnnen last night![/font][/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)][font=Helvetica]More fine and warm weather this week too, so June is turning out a lovely Summer month for a change! It may be turning somewhat cooler and more unsettled later in the week, although this breakdown not definite as yet. Sunday, and the chilly night a distant memory this morning as the mercury rockets, plenty of sunshine today with highs between 21 and 24c widely, coasts pleasantly cooler with sea breezes, 18 or 19c here. Patchy cloud for the Midlands in particular this afternoon, a light shower just about possible over the East Midlands. Another cool, clear night, again inland Wales and the Marches down to between 4 and 7c, more like 10c though for cities due to UHI (Urban Heat Island) effect. A similar Summery picture for Monday too with high pressure close to Ireland, warm with sunny spells, Cumulus clouds building afternoon threatening the odd shower, especially over the Midlands, but 90% of us remain dry again. Highs mostly in the 21 to 24c range, cooler for some coasts. Light winds, another clear coolish night to follow, lows below 9c in the countryside. Tuesday may be a touch cooler and fresher, patchy cloud but sunny spells especially for West Wales (WW). Largely dry, but a few light showers affecting the Midlands, maxima 18 to 21c, quite a brisk NE breeze for the East Midlands later. A decidedly cool night follows, close to a grass frost for prone spots of the Marches and West Midlands with lows of 3c possible locally, but much milder for coasts and cities, above 10c at Llanelli for instance.

[color=rgb(0,0,0)][font=Helvetica]Increasingly messy weather charts from Wednesday as we lose the high pressure but neither does the barometer sink so low. No real weather fonts to contend with for southern Britain so another rather warm and mostly dry day, highs likely in the 20 to 23c range, perhaps WW doing best on Wednesday. Sunny spells but with some areas of cloud rendering some of us a cloudier day. Pressure leaking away more decisively later in the week as it looks like becoming more unsettled. A shallow low close to Ireland on Thursday threatens some showery rain in places, although some of us escape with another dry day, WW most likely to see a few showers on Thursday. Still rather warm for the Midlands with sunny spells and highs of 22c but with more cloud and showers about WW cooler at 18c or so. Friday has the low over England so more showery rain in places, perhaps heavy in places, but again some areas escape with very little. Rather warm (22c) should the sun appear, but conversely rather cool where the cloud and showers persist (18c). [/font][/color]

[color=rgb(0,0,0)][font=Helvetica]Next weekend is uncertain, perhaps somewhat unsettled but with relatively high pressure still close to our SW, so no washout and it may not end up such a bad weekend. Best stab then, plenty of dry weather with some sunshine, but not clear blue skies, showers or rain for some places but not everywhere, hit and miss stuff. Temperatures near average, maxima in the 18 to 22c range. The jury is out regards what July has in store![/font][/color]
