Forecast For Abersoch Issued: Sunday 22nd July, 2018 at 9.11am By Chas

   

 

Headline Summary: Potentially Very Warm Today - Sunny Spells Developing.


General Situation: Good morning - bore da from Abersoch. It is a bright, quiet and warm start to the today with some cloud overhead which is allowing through some sunshine and there is very little in the way of breeze and today looks like becoming really warm, as those breezes are set to remain light. A glance at the synoptic chart for 06hrs this morning shows a couple of decaying fronts just to the east and to the west of the area and these are bringing that cloud, however, we are expecting this cloud to break up enough to bring some very warm sunshine. The source of the air that is coming across the UK is also a warm one and fairly humid one today, so temperatures could soar if breezes stay light. At the moment, the highest temperatures over the next few days look like being in areas to the east and southeast of us, as we will have more of an Atlantic influence out here in the west, bringing variable amounts of cloud. This is almost the reverse of what was happening back in late June when we had that incredible run of 30C+ days, when eastern areas of the UK had more of a North Sea influence. Temperatures look like remaining above average over the coming week and if we see that magical combination of not much breeze and some strong sunshine, we could see high temperatures again, however, a bit of a fine and fair, mixed bag looks likely with lightly changeable conditions affecting the area from time to time...remember, we often have updates on most days over on the report page...


Today (Sunday): Cloud breaking at times to allow through some very warm sunny spells. Potentially some decent spells of very warm sunshine developing, though the cloud could come and go. Not much breeze to start the day, with a light southwesterly breeze expected to arrive during the day. Becoming very warm, especially if the breeze stays very light and we see that sunshine. Fine this evening, with perhaps the cloud still coming and going on a light southwesterly breeze.

Tonight: Variable cloud amounts and dry. Warm and humid.

Monday: Cloud may be an issue at times during Monday, which may break and thin enough to allow some warm sunshine, however there may also be a noticeable breeze from between the south and southwest picking up during the day. Probably staying dry and still feeling warm, despite the breeze, but a question mark on the extent of the cloud cover.


Tuesday: A slow moving front may be close by on Tuesday bringing some annoying amounts of cloud and perhaps the chance of showers. Light winds from the southwest and still warm, however, the timing and duration of the potential showery spell is yet to be determined by the models.


Outlook: Wednesday may see more in the way of very warm sunshine, with breezes again from between south and southwest, bringing in variable amounts of cloud. Thursday and Friday seeing that mix of cloudy and sunnier spells, with perhaps the shower risk increasing for a time later in the day on Thursday.

Extended Outlook: The outlook this morning for the period from 28th July 2018 to 1st August 2018 - is for a continuation of the warmer than average temperatures with some fine weather at times, along with lightly changeable weather too. There are some differences between the operational models this morning regarding the proximity of low pressure with the GFS run bringing some very windy and showery weather early on Sunday 29th, however, there is a reasonable chance that this model is overplaying the extent of low pressure and this scenario may disappear from the apps that it powers during the day.
