When to expect a return of 20°C temperatures from the Met Office's five-day weather forecast
Weather forecasters say the glorious sunshine from earlier in June will not be as much of a feature in the next few days, but it hasn’t completely gone away either.
The Met Office says that over the next few days it will be: “Generally cloudy and cool during this period, with outbreaks of rain at times, particularly over high ground. Perhaps drier on Thursday, with bright or sunny spells in the east.”
Temperatures have dropped from their balmier levels of recent weeks and, while we can expect to see some sunshine particularly on Monday evening and most of Tuesday, we won’t be sweltering.
Here is what the Met Office expects between now and the weekend:
The forecast for Monday
It is expected to be cloudy but dry until around 7pm. The rest of June 21 should be sunny thereafter, but with temperatures no higher than 13°C. The bright later weather is good news for those wishing to enjoy the longest day of the year. The sun won’t set until almost 10pm.
The forecast for Tuesday
After the sun rises it will be around for most of June 22. Again it will be dry throughout, but with top temperature a modest 14°C with a gentle breeze.
The forecast for Wednesday
Wednesday will be warmer – but cloudier. We are expected to see some sunshine in the morning, but only grey skies throughout the afternoon. It is at least expected to stay dry and temperatures should peak at around 17°C in the afternoon.
The forecast for Thursday
Thursday, June 24 is predicted by the Met Office to be a real mixed bag in our area, with mid-afternoon temperatures expected to reach 20°C. However, the afternoon and early evening could well see some spots of rain too.
It will be cloudy all morning, sunny intervals in the afternoon, before clouding over again later in the evening.
The forecast for Friday
The so-so weather is set to continue as we head for the weekend. Early Friday morning is forecast to begin with sunny intervals and spots of rain. The skies will remain heavily clouded in the afternoon and don’t expect to see any more sun until Sunday.
