OYBBK's on holiday so will a notverygoodatforecasting Deputy Smud do?
It's not looking that great and it looks like a case of 'sunshine and showers' for next week. From what I can tell, there's a low pressure system off the coast of Ireland that's going to push the showers in from the west.
Temperatures don't look that great ~ Sparkling, you might get a 20C Chester way, mid~end next week (that's as best it gets, the rest of the time the temp charts are saying 16-19C!) Shelley for Dorset, temp charts are saying 20-21 but the inland southern bits of the country are supposed to be warmer ~ temps in the low 20s. The nights are really beginning to get chilly, Chester's showing low teens overnight so if camping, I'd wrap up warm (I'm a bit that in the mountains of Scotland one night next week, they are showing a 0 and -1 already!)
Not sure how the beginning of September/the week after's looking ~ might be a bit far ahead. I'll see if there are any websites out there that are willing to hazard a guess as to whether we'll get a heatwave!
of course! hope there will be someone along shortly with some good news! or failing that the winning lottery numbers so i can go somewhere hot and have a proper holiday not camping in a soggy tent with a grumpy husband and two squabbling children
