Forecast For Abersoch Issued:
Sunday 26th March, 2017 at 6.55am By Chas


Headline Summary
Glorious Weather Continuing / Bit More Breeze Today...

General Situation: After some glorious weather on Saturday in Abersoch and Pen Llyn, which saw some warm temperatures, the fine weather looks like lasting another couple of days, before things start to change. Today, there is some uncertainty regarding how much easterly wind there is likely to be, which will have a bearing on how warm it will feel. As we often mention on this page, easterly winds are always a bit fickle in the immediate Abersoch area and can tend to drop out completely at times during the day, which does bring the possibility of today also developing into another warm day...

Today: Sunny again today with more of an east or east-northeasterly to start the day and the behaviour of this wind will determine how warm it gets as there is a chance of it becoming much lighter or perhaps dropping out during the day, meaning it won't be feeding in a flow off the fairly chilly water of Cardigan Bay, so perhaps becoming warm if the breeze does ease, but in any case, sheltered spots should do well for warmth. Note that this easterly wind affect is often very localised, so areas on the north of the peninsula often see stronger winds continuing.

The easterly may increase again late in the day.

Tonight: Easterly or northeasterly breeze, increasing at times, with clear spells and patchy high cloud.

Monday: Sunny weather and potentially glorious again with very little in the way of cloud expected and the easterly / southeasterly breeze may fall light or drop out during the day, which would bring warm temperatures to Abersoch.

Tuesday: Fronts may affect the area during Tuesday bringing more in the way of cloud and perhaps some showery rain for a time.


Outlook: Unsettled and windy on Wednesday, with low pressure to the west of Ireland feeding in rain bearing fronts and some strong to gale force southerly winds. The situation may not change all that much on Thursday, with further showers or rain possible, along with some strong winds at times. Changeable and rather breezy weather continuing on Friday with perhaps some showers, along with some brighter periods, though note that there could be another spell of persistent rain coming through at some stage.

Extended Outlook: The outlook this morning for the period from Saturday 1st April to Wednesday 5th April is for a period of changeable conditions with one or two decent days, but also one or two rather windy and unsettled ones, so a real mixed bag of conditions.
