10 Day Forecast for Bamford

Page loading ...

Cold and sunny, but turning cloudier later.

Today:

A cold and frosty start, but fine with plenty of sunshine. Skies will gradually turn cloudier from the west later, although most will remain bright. Winds will be lighter than at the weekend, but it will still feel cold. Maximum Temperature 7C.

Tonight:

Dry with clear spells leading to a frost and patchy fog, especially in the east. Some drizzle may fall over hills in the west later. Minimum Temperature -3C.

Tuesday:

Fog patches may persist well into the afternoon in places, otherwise cloudy in the west, but sunny spells in the east. Winds will remain light. Maximum Temperature 6C.

Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:

Mostly dry but cloudy on Wednesday with the odd spot of rain possible. Some uncertainty thereafter, but breezier on Thursday and probably cold and bright with overnight frost.

Day 6 to 15

Friday looks likely to be wet and possibly very windy in the northwest, and colder and drier in the far east. There could be some snow where the colder air meets the wet weather, most likely over the hills in the north, but it may fall to lower levels in places too. Over next weekend, the weather is likely to be changeable and often windy and cloudy, with showers or longer spells of rain at times. Any snow is most likely on high ground in the north. During the following week, eastern and southern areas may become drier for a time with more sunshine but clearer colder nights would lead to some night frost. Overall, temperatures are likely to be around normal for the time of year.

Day 16 to 30

The early part of this period, including Christmas, is looking fairly changeable with showers or longer spells of rain, possibly wintry over higher ground. Temperatures look likely to be around normal for the time of year. However, later in the month and into the New Year, there is the chance of high pressure becoming established close to the UK. This would bring drier and colder weather, and a greater chance of night frosts. There remains some uncertainty about this; if the high pressure is offset to the west or east of the UK, wet and windy weather would dominate.
