Forecast For Abersoch Issued:
Monday 20th February, 2017 at 6.40am By Chas


Headline Summary
Cloudy & Damp At Times.

General Situation: Cloudy conditions have been annoyingly persistent at times on recent days and the trend for mostly cloudy skies looks set to continue for today and tomorrow. The reason for the cloud is a mild airstream off the Atlantic along with weather fronts and the mild airstream looks like bringing some very mild weather to England today, however, out in the west it looks like being mild without being exceptionally so, due to more of a maritime influence...

Today: Plenty of cloud again today, with some of it again of the low variety with the chance of one or two spits and spots this morning with the chance of light, drizzly showers this afternoon and evening. The drizzle or rain may become more persistent later. Winds today, fresh and from the west-southwest with fairly mild temperatures.

Tonight: Cloudy and wet overnight with fresh west-southwesterlies, perhaps strong for a time.

Tuesday: Cloud may dominate the day again on Tuesday and there looks like being showery outbreaks of drizzle or rain on and off throughout. Winds may be fresh to strong west-southwesterly and temperatures will again be mild. Winds may reach gale force on Tuesday evening / night.

Wednesday: Wednesday may see bright and breezy conditions with the welcome return of some sunny spells during the day with variable amounts of cloud coming and going and potentially dry for much of the time. Perhaps turing unsettled again overnight.

Outlook: Very windy with gales on Thursday and the chance of showers along with some spells of sunshine coming and going and feeling noticeably chillier. Friday may be a bright and fairly breezy day with some sunshine at times and variable amounts of cloud with a reasonable chance that it may stay dry until Friday night. High level of uncertainty for Saturday, but perhaps becoming windier and generally more unsettled for a time again.

Extended Outlook: The outlook this morning for the period from Sunday 26th February to Thursday 2nd March is for a rather windy and very changeable period, with low pressure dominating the weather, bringing a very mixed bag of conditions from day to day. Temperatures perhaps near to where they should be for time of year.
