10 Day Forecast for Bamford

Page loading ...

A mainly clear though chilly night.

This Evening and Tonight:

Dry and becoming largely clear, which combined with light winds will allow temperatures to quickly fall. Becoming chilly, especially in rural locations, with a risk of a slight ground frost. Minimum Temperature 3C.

Sunday:

Sunny intervals and scattered showers, after a dry, chilly but largely sunny start. The showers may be heavy at times, perhaps thundery, especially near the coast. Breezy and feeling cold. Maximum Temperature 13C.

Outlook for Monday to Wednesday:

Sunny though chilly with a few afternoon showers Monday. Breezier and generally cloudier but remaining dry Tuesday and Wednesday, thus less cold.

Day 6 to 15

Through the remainder of September the weather should stay largely settled with long spells of sunshine and generally light winds. Northern and northwestern areas may be more changeable at times, with stronger winds and some outbreaks of rain, which may occasionally extend a little further east and south. Overnight, pockets of mist and fog are possible, especially in the south although it should remain mostly dry here. By day it will be warm for many, but some nights will be chilly with patchy frost possible. Into early October, many areas are likely to remain mostly settled, but it is likely to turn generally colder. Southern parts are likely to see the driest weather, but some wet and windy weather is possible in the north.

Day 16 to 30

Generally settled and drier conditions are likely to dominate across many parts of the UK during the beginning of this period, particularly across the south. This should bring a good deal of sunshine with any wet and windy weather, likely to be mostly confined to the north. Long nights will lead to a greater chance of fog and patchy frost, but the days will often be mild. Towards the middle of the month, there is considerable uncertainty in the forecast, with the chance that it may turn more unsettled across all parts, although this is most likely to be across the north.
