Weather for the week ahead : Fri 5th to Fri 12th March 2021

It looks as if the current dry spell is about to come to an end.

The weather chart above shows the situation at the weekend. There is a high pressure system over the UK which is giving us this our current spell of dry and cool weather. It is also blocking the high pressure systems coming in from the Atlantic.

Starting on Friday, the Jet Stream out over the Atlantic is getting stronger and this has the effect of pushing more and more against the high pressure system. It's possible there may be some rain over the weekend as these front make more progress and the further west you are then the higher the chance of rain.

By the start of next week, the high pressure system moves away which allows the usual conveyor belt of low pressure systems to return. The result is a lot more wet weather next week but at least the temperatures should come back up a bit closer to 10 deg C.

It's not all doom and gloom as there will be plenty of bright spells between the fronts. Make the most of it if you're out for a run.
