We’ve had a good run of warm temps these past couple weeks but I’d like to think that a proper summer would include equal doses of both sunshine and rain. This helps ensure that whenever we decide to go for a walk, bike ride or jog that the parks, green belts and front gardens are kept a healthy and well tended to shade of green.
Guess what? The rain has returned with a fury!
Friday night will likely see showers continuing over the northern half of the country but the south will be mainly dry with broken cloud; westerly winds will continue to moderate overnight also. Some showers will linger in the north during Saturday but the rest of the country will be mainly dry and bright, with winds slackening all the while and temperatures improving, except in the north and northwest.
Later on Saturday, however, outbreaks of rain are likely to develop in southern coastal counties. There will be little change on Saturday night but rain in the south will steadily clear during Sunday; elsewhere, on Sunday, there will be a mixture of sunny intervals and isolated light showers; winds will be light northerly and temperatures will be only a little below normal for mid-June. The early days of next week will continue in a similar vein with some sunshine, light breezes, temperatures only a little below normal and with no more than occasional light showers anywhere. However, Wednesday next may see wet and windy conditions returning to many places.
