Next week's weather

We have the latest weather forecast from our colleagues in the Met Office:

"Another unsettled week ahead as a succession of Atlantic low pressure centres and their attendant weather fronts impact the UK, bringing with them the usual mix of regular bouts of rainfall/showers, occasional stronger winds but also predominantly mild temperatures with little or no wintry hazards to concern us. The main threat will be from rainfall totals and their effect upon the land and our river catchments. Whilst there may be no stand-out rainfall events on the horizon, at this time of year we need to keep careful watch as the repetitive nature of the rainfall could result in temporary escalation of the flood risk, more especially over and to the west of the Pennines where the majority of the coming week’s rainfall will descend.

Weather events during the coming week that merit (some) attention:

  • A band of somewhat sporadic but locally heavy rain making a rather leisurely west to east crossing of all northern England overnight and into tomorrow, perhaps not clearing the NE coast until early tomorrow afternoon. Brighter/drier for a time behind this but showers following later tomorrow and tomorrow night, especially to NW England. Winds gradually freshening up.

  • Sunday/Monday – both showery, rather windy days, the showers generally more frequent across NW England with more in the way of drier/brighter weather across NE England.

  • Slight frost in places Monday night (probably the only one of the week) then the next belt of rain and freshening winds sweeping E across all areas on Tuesday, again some heavy rain likely, mainly NW England. A drier/clearer interlude behind this but then showers return by Wednesday, again these more extensive across NW England, more scattered across the NE. Showers may turn wintry at times over the Cumbrian mountains and the higher N Pennine hills.

  • Remainder of next week – Staying rather windy with further rain/showers likely and some short-lived brighter/clearer interludes.

  • Temperatures throughout the coming week in the range near average to mild.
