10 Day Forecast for Bamford

Page loading ...

Dry and largely sunny. Becoming warm inland.

Today:

A dry and largely sunny day is forecast with mainly light northwesterly winds. Temperatures will recover to give a warm day across sheltered inland areas, after rather cool start. Daytime onshore breezes will hold coastal temperatures down somewhat. Maximum Temperature 21C.

Tonight:

A pleasant sunny evening is expected. It will remain dry and largely clear overnight with light winds. Becoming cool as temperatures fall to single figures in rural areas by dawn. Minimum Temperature 8C.

Saturday:

Cool at first, then a dry and often sunny day is expected, although the sunshine may become hazy at times. Becoming warm inland, although with cooling afternoon breezes along coasts. Maximum Temperature 22C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday:

Dry and mainly sunny, although with sometimes hazy sunshine. Becoming increasingly warm, or very warm inland by Tuesday. Cooler nights at first, and where onshore daytime breezes develop.

Day 6 to 15

The final week of June will see plenty of dry and sunny weather across most of the UK, with only the far north and northwest seeing cloudier skies at times, with rain possible. With the fine weather, temperatures will continue to rise for all parts, but especially so in the south where it could turn hot. The heat may spark an isolated thunderstorm, with the risk increasing towards next weekend, especially over high ground, although the majority will stay dry. As we head into the start of July confidence reduces, but most areas should continue to see plenty of fine, sunny and very warm weather. Northern and some western areas may however begin to see cloudier conditions pushing in, with the chance of some rain and stronger winds here.

Day 16 to 30

Although confidence remains low through July, early indications bring a good deal of dry and settled weather across many parts of the UK. However, there are some signs that more changeable weather may develop at times, especially in the north, and possibly the west, potentially leading to cloud, stronger winds and some rain. Where it turns more changeable it will also become cooler, but where the dry and settled weather continues, it will remain very warm, especially in the south and southeast.
