Forecast for Saturday 14th April to Saturday 21st April issued on Friday morning 13th April.

Very high confidence for Spring to arrive next week! In fact it will probably feel like summer. After Sunday it will turn very warm with SE'ly winds pushing temperatures into the low twenties. A lot of dry weather with spells of sunshine which will dry the ground out quickly. However, towards the end of the week there is a risk of scattered thunderstorms.


The outlook for the rest of April into May is for it to stay mainly dry and warm in April but with a few thundery showers. Turning cooler with some rain and westerly winds for a time in early May but then becoming fine and settled again with a risk of some hot weather and violent storms later in the month.
