Please note there will be no update on Sunday 26/06 - next update Monday 27/06.


Headline Summary
Shower Lottery Today.

General Situation: The weather today is not looking as potentially fine as it was on previous updates, due to an increased chance of showers, meaning it is going to be one of those lottery days, with showers moving through the area so it will be down to luck whether Abersoch sees several, one or two, or none at all. The outlook is a very changeable one with Atlantic low pressure being the dominant influence, bringing a mixed bag of weather, that will of course include some decent periods too in between rain bearing fronts...

Today: As mentioned above, there is a higher risk of showers today than was looking likely to be the case this time yesterday morning, so, with plenty of cloud abot this morning, don't be too surprised if a shower comes along, however some brighter periods should come and go too, with some sunny intervals. This afternoon it is a case of more of the same with the shower risk increasing from time to time, with the chance of some brighter and sunnier intervals too and this pattern may continue into the early evening, however a fine end to the day is a possibility. Light to moderate breezes from the northwest today, perhaps gusting just a touch higher for a time.

Tonight: Dry with clear spells and variable cloud amounts then cloudier from dawn.

Sunday: Fronts moving in from the west are expected to bring cloud, showery drizzle or rain during the day on Sunday, with potentially the rather cloudy and damp weather starting from the word go, and lasting through the day. Becoming quite breezy from the west or southwest at times during the day.

Monday: Changeable weather on Monday with some sunshine, some cloud and perhaps a shower or two blowing through on moderate winds from a westerly quarter. There is a reasonable chance of some decent spells of sunshine on the peninsula.

Outlook: Tuesday may see fronts affect the area again meaning there is a chance of a wetter spell at some stage of the day, though its timing and duration is impossible to judge at this stage. The generally very changeable weather is set to continue on both Wednesday and Thursday, with a spell of wet weather again likely at some stage.

Extended Outlook: The trend for the period from Friday 1st July 2016 to Monday 4th July 2016 is still for changeable conditions with a mixed bag of weather with a generally westerly, Atlantic sourced weather pattern. Within that framework, there should be some periods of fine weather mixed in.

For more info on the outlook from the professionals, the Met Office extended 6 to 30 day outlooks are generally very useful and are updated daily between 11.30 am and 1.30pm. They can can be found on this link here.
