Oh dear Shelley I think it is so bad nobody wants to say. sad

BBc weather says it doesn't look good but they aren't very reliable IMO.

OYBBK's on holiday so will a not very good at forecasting Deputy Smud do?

It's not looking that great sad 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 shock 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!

Some September forecasts for you from accuweather and WeatherOnline.

Thanks Gloria. I thought as much, but we have got things to do whatever the weather. We have rented a house so we should be snug. smile

As with most of the weather this summer, I guess it's a case of making the best of it, whatever the weather does. Have a nice time!

Thanks Gloria, I am just looking forward to being somewhere else for a bit. smile

Thank you Gloria. We are camping so will take everything then. And if it gets too bad, come home smile.
