Forecast For Abersoch Issued: Thursday 5th March, 2015 at 7.10am By Chas

Headline Summary: Rather Breezy.

General Situation: Plenty of dry and fairly mild weather is expected for Abersoch over the next 2 to 3 days, however, the wind is going to be a feature again, with winds gusting to gale force, particularly on Friday and Saturday.

Today: Plenty of cloud for Abersoch at times today, which may break up at times to allow through some brighter interludes, especially this afternoon, however, the cloudy weather in general is expected to dominate. Chance of a spit or spot or two of dampness in the fresh southwesterly winds, that may gust to strong, though it is expected to remain mostly dry.

Tonight: Windy with plenty of cloud that may break up a little at times. Mild.

Friday: A mild and very windy day with strong to gale force south-southwesterly winds and a mixture of cloudy and sunny spells. Some uncertainty regarding the balance between the sunshine and cloud, but it should remain dry.

Saturday: Remaining very windy from a southerly or south-southwesterly direction with plenty of cloud at times, which may break to allow through some brighter or sunnier spells. Mild temperatures. Rain overnight.

Outlook: After a wet and very windy start to Sunday, drier, brighter and less windy weather may arrive during the morning to leave a rather pleasant afternoon. Timing of the clearance uncertain. Perhaps OK for a time on Monday, however low pressure may bring unsettled conditions at some stage of the day and these may affect Tuesday too.

Extended Outlook: The trend for the period from Wednesday 11th March to Saturday 14th March is very uncertain with GFS now going for windy and changeable conditions and ECMWF showing perhaps more of a high pressure influence - so it is very much up in the air at the moment and will very likely look different again tomorrow!

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.
