Enjoying the hot spell?
As often is the case for the UK the heat and humidity looks set to be the perfect recipe for some big Thunderstorms with the potential for flash flooding on Saturday!
These storms will be isolated but the potential is there for many areas to catch one.
As the high begins to retreat eastwards pressure will fall and allow Atlantic fronts to move in from the west. This combination of warm sunshine and increasing humidity already in place will result in heavy showers or thunderstorms to break out across England, Wales, N. Ireland and southern Scotland.
The areas most likely to see the worst of the thunderstorms will be South West England & into the Midlands.
As we move into next week a more typical weather pattern takes over with an Atlantic low pressure close to the North, So it is looking cooler, cloudier and breezier with some rain at times or showers.
Round one came to an end just over a week ago however round two could be here by the weekend!
After the Severe blizzards at the start of the month most areas have seen a return to near average temperatures but the onset of spring looks set to be delayed by a few more days.
This weekend will see a dramatic change with temperatures in London going from +15c to barely scraping above freezing by Sunday.
Widespread snowfall is also possible particularly in areas down the Eastern side of Britain with one or two areas seeing significant falls.
The snow will largely be in the form of showers so amounts will vary but many in the East will catch one or two between Sunday and Tuesday.
As the week progresses all of the UK will experience harsh frosts with temperatures as low as -10c over night before milder weather tries to push in on Friday.
Well it looks as though the current period of cold and occasionally snowy weather is all but over with for the UK.
As we head into the start of next week the winds veer round to a originate from a more southerly direction giving those who have felt the chill some much needed warmth.
The start of the week will see a gradual increase in temperature but by the end of the week and into the weekend its possible we could be seeing highs of 15 or even 16c for those in the south.
So i guess if were not going to be able to use the sledge this winter it might aswell be warm right?
