10 Day Forecast for Neuadd Reservoir

Page loading ...

Some warm sunshine but some thunderstorms too.

Today:

It will be a warm day with sunny spells and light winds, but there will be thundery showers around too, perhaps most frequent across the north of the country this afternoon. Maximum Temperature 25C.

Tonight:

Thunderstorms may well continue across north and northeast Wales through the night but it should be dry elsewhere. Temperatures will stay in double figures. Minimum Temperature 13C.

Monday:

Another warm day with sunshine breaking through the cloud for many. There may be scattered thunderstorms but far fewer than on Sunday. Maximum Temperature 26C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Some more showers are expected on Tuesday and Wednesday, possibly thundery, but Thursday currently looks the driest day. It will remain warm.

Day 6 to 15

Towards the end of next week and into the weekend, there will be a good deal of dry, fine and sunny weather across the UK. However, some mist and low cloud may affect eastern coastal districts, but also some sunny spells. There is the risk of heavy showers and thunderstorms developing, mainly across central and southern areas. Staying very warm for most, but perhaps cooler along east and northeastern coastal areas. For the rest of the period, there will probably be a good deal of dry weather with sunny spells, best of which is likely to be in the north. However, it will probably turn more changeable across the UK with rain or showers developing quite widely, with temperatures falling closer to the average during early June.

Day 16 to 30

Confidence remains low through June, however there are signs that it may become more widely changeable across the UK. This will bring more frequent spells of rain or showers. However there are likely to be drier and more settled periods for most areas too, particularly from mid June onwards. Temperatures are likely to be near or slightly above average on the whole, with the potential for some warmer spells, more probable towards the end of the period.
