Forecast For Abersoch Issued: Wednesday 17th January, 2018 at 8.15am By Chas

   

 

Headline Summary: A Cold Gale, Severe At Times.

General Situation: The cold and very windy weather continues today, although there should be some sunshine at times. Later on, the area of low pressure that we have been talking about on recent days, will be deepening and moving in from the west bringing another spell of severe gales and rain. This low should already have exited the UK by Thursday morning and be sat over northern Germany at midday tomorrow, leaving another cold westerly in its wake, with sunshine and showers, which could again have a wintry flavour. The cold westerly wind is set to continue on Friday with Saturday seeing a lull in the winds (in relative terms), with the chance of some decent weather before a potential washout on Sunday morning, with another gale too, which should also feed in some slightly milder air. A very changeable and often windy theme is set to continue next week...

Today (Wednesday): Gales from a westerly quarter today which will have a significant wind chill factor, however, there should also be some decent spells of sunshine coming and going with the cloud. Chance of a shower at any time, but potentially plenty of dry weather. The wind may ease down a touch later, beofre increasing again this evening to severe gale (perhaps variable in direction), along with the arrival of some rain.


Tonight: Rain for a time, clearing, but a severe gale from a westerly quarter is likely.

Thursday: Strong to gale force winds from a westerly quarter bringing in one or two showers, which could have a wintry flavour later. Some spells of sunshine are expected. Feeling very cold in the wind.

Friday: More of the same... Strong to gale force winds from a westerly quarter bringing in one or two showers. Perhaps a touch colder so more of a wintry flavour to the showers, but some spells of sunshine should be coming and going. Significant wind chill.

Outlook: Perhaps a drier day on Saturday with winds from a chilly northwesterly direction, but less strong, before some strong winds and rain arrives for Sunday morning, with the chance of an improvement on Sunday afternoon, depending on the speed of the fronts moving through the area. High level of uncertainty for Monday.

Extended Outlook: The outlook this morning for the period from 23rd January 2018 to 27th January 2018 is for a very changeable period, with a mixed bag of conditions and temperatures meandering either side of the seasonal average.
