Forecast For Abersoch Issued: Wednesday 2nd September, 2015 at 7.30am By Chas

Headline Summary: Chilly Breeze But Some Sunshine Too.

General Situation: Winds from a northerly quarter will keep a lid on temperatures over the next few days, however, the outlook is generally quite a good one, once the chance of showers over the next day or two has diminished. As it stands this morning, the weekend looks like being a mostly fine one and these fine conditions may extend into the first half of next week...

Today: Brisk north-northwesterly winds will give the day a chilly feel, however, there should be some spells of sunshine again with cloud coming and going, along with a background risk of one or two showers blowing through the area. There may be some decent spells of sunshine at times and sheltered spots will feel fine. More of the same this evening.

Tonight: Chilly, clear spells, perhaps a shower.

Thursday: Brisk and chilly northerly winds for Thursday with a mixture of sunny and cloudy spells during the day with still the chance of one or two showery spells. Chance of some decent spells of sunshine developing with sheltered spots doing best for warmth. Chilly overnight.

Friday: Brisk and chilly northerly winds for Friday with some spells of pleasant sunshine, variable amounts of cloud and it may stay dry. Sheltered spots will be needed to benefit from the sunshine. Chilly overnight.

Outlook: Mostly fine over the weekend with some sunshine, winds from a northerly quarter, variable amounts of cloud and chilly overnight temperatures if skies remain clear. Fine on Monday and perhaps warmer by day.

Extended Outlook: The trend for the period from Tuesday 8th September to Saturday 12th September according to the latest charts, is for high pressure to dominate the weather at the start of the period with perhaps a return of a more westerly, Atlantic sourced weather type during the rest of the period, bringing in changeable conditions. Note that there are some differences between charts, which leads to the possibility of high pressure perhaps lasting longer into the week.
