Forecast For Abersoch Issued: Saturday 1st August, 2015 at 7.40am By Chas

Headline Summary: Morning Showers Then Brighter.

General Situation: The changeable theme continues...

Today: Showers are affecting the peninsula at the moment and further showers are possible through the morning with perhaps mostly dry weather arriving by about midday (timing a little uncertain regarding this). There may be some brighter interludes between any showers this morning and there is the chance of some spells of sunshine for a time this afternoon, before cloud perhaps thickens again later. Winds today are expected to be mostly moderate in strength and southwesterly, perhaps gusting to fresh at times.

Tonight: Plenty of cloud overnight with perhaps some drizzle or rain by dawn.

Sunday: Plenty of cloud to start the day on Sunday with perhaps some drizzly showers. Drier and brighter weather is expected to arive for a time with perhaps the best of any brighter or sunnier spells around the middle of the day, though cloud amounts may tend to increase again during the afternoon, with showers returning later. Feeling a touch warmer. Winds from the south-southeast during the day and moderate to fresh. Note that there is a big tide on Sunday evening.

Monday: A front may pass through the area on Monday morning bringing some showers for a time, otherwise it looks like being a mostly bright and very windy day with the chance of some decent spells of sunshine, though there may still be the background risk of a shower. The southwesterly winds may be strong at times during the day, possibly gusting to gale force for a time.

Outlook: Generally very windy at times on Tuesday and Wednesday with some spells of sunshine but also the chance of a showery spell or two (timing very uncertain). Perhaps some decent spells of sunshine developing at times on these days.

Extended Outlook: The trend for the period from Thursday 6th August to Tuesday 11th August is for generally a very mixed bag of weather with the changeable theme continuing. There is the chance of a fine couple of days towards the end of next week (6th/7th) - however as that is some way off, we shall have to see how the charts develop over the next couple of days.

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.
