Forecast For Abersoch Issued:
Saturday 10th December, 2016 at 7.35am By Chas


Headline Summary
Mostly OK Today.

General Situation: The weather is in a generally low pressure dominated, mild and changeable mode, however, it looks as though that rain we mentioned on yesterday morning's update will stay mostly to the southeast of the area today and the mostly dry theme looks set to continue tomorrow, all be it with temperatures coming down a touch. The first half of next week looks unsettled and windy at times, with temperatures remaining reasonably mild. The extended outlook does offer some optimism for settled conditions returning for the run up to Christmas...

Today: Plenty of cloud with some brighter periods and although it does now look as though Abersoch will stay to the northwest of an area of rain, a shower cannot be completely ruled out, but there is a good chance of it staying dry. Winds light to moderate and the west or southwest and still reasonably mild. Clearer periods developing this evening.

Tonight: Clear spells, variable amounts of cloud and dry.

Sunday: A generally bright day with variable amounts of cloud and some sunshine at times with light to moderate west-southwesterly winds, backing southerly on Sunday night and increasing. Perhaps some decent spells of sunshine developing and still fairly mild, though temperatures will probably have eased down a touch by then.

Monday: Strong southerly winds, perhaps touching gale force with plenty of low cloud, with outbreaks of rain and drizzle. Chance of a drier and brighter spell at some stage, though the timing of this is uncertain.

Outlook: Unsettled and windy or very windy for Tuesday and Wednesday with plenty of cloud, mild temperatures and the chance of showers or rain on both days. The very windy and potentially unsettled theme might continue on Thursday.
