Forecast For Abersoch Issued: Thursday 24th May, 2018 at 7.15am By Chas

   

 

Headline Summary: More Cloud Today, More Breeze Plus A Chance Of Showers.


General Situation: After the wonderful beach weather yesterday (as described on the Beach Report Page), today is a bit of bump back to reality as there is more cloud, more breeze and there are some showers in the forecast too. The models have been chopping and changing a bit over the last couple of days regarding the outlook for the next couple of days and the weekend, as we are seeing showery troughs move into the UK from the continent and these troughs may develop into a more developed frontal feature tomorrow, which is not good news, as it brings the chance that we may see a longer spell of rain. For the holiday weekend, the northern half of Brtain looks like seeing the best of the very warm sunshine, with the Abersoch area also enjoying some very warm and sunny periods, however, the risk of thunderstorms may increase from time to time...


Today (Thursday): A cloudy start to the day with a breeze from between the north and northeast and there are one or two showers knocking about the area which could continue to affect the Abersoch area in the next few hours, with some brighter glimpses too. Thereafter, it looks like being a day with a mix of plenty of cloudy, some brighter periods, with perhaps some sunshine at times and although it may be a dry afternoon, a further shower cannot be completely ruled out. Chance of a fine evening. Breezes from the northeast today, a bit up and down as they always are in this direction, perhaps dropping off for a time in the afternoon, early evening, especially if we see some sunshine arrive. Warm in any sunshine, but still feeling OK under the cloud.


Tonight: Dry overnight with a northeasterly breeze, some clear spells and patchy cloud.


Friday: Some warm sunshine to start the day with the risk of thundery showers increasing during the second half of the morning and into the afternoon. Still some uncertainty regarding the timing of any potential thundery rain, so there remains a chance that the area may miss the worst of it, however, the latest info does suggest that we will be very lucky if we stay dry. Perhaps a fine end to the day. Winds from between the north and northeast, up to moderate at times, so making it feel a little fresher, with sheltered spots remaining fairly warm.


Saturday: Potentially warm or very warm with sunshine and patchy cloud, however, there may still be a background risk of a thundery shower. Winds from the northeast, fluctuating between light and moderate to fresh during the day, but potentially falling rather light at times, due to the local "easterly factor" that we mention on here from time to time, which would help those temperatures to rise noticeably.


Outlook: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday looks like seeing some very warm spells of sunshine, along with breezes from the northeast, which may fall very light at times during the day during the sunnier periods. Note that once again, the risk of thundery showers may increase at times, however, at this range it is virtually impossible to suggest which period of which day may see the risk increase.


Extended Outlook: The outlook this morning for the period from 30th May 2018 to 3rd June 2018 still looks like being a case of more of the same, with the chance of some lovely weather, interspersed with showery periods, which could be thundery. Note that some of these charts below are from yesterday evening, as not all info is available at this time.
