Met Office Forecast
South East England
Sunshine and showers.
Windy with sunny spells and scattered showers through the day. These most frequent along southern coastal counties, and potentially turning heavy at times through the afternoon with a risk of hail and thunder. Feeling rather cool in the wind. Maximum Temperature 12C.
Showers will ease through the evening, along with the strong, blustery winds. Most parts turning dry with clear spells possible, before cloud thickens from the southwest after midnight Minimum Temperature 6C.
Soon turning wet and windy, with rain spreading northeast, heavy at times. Turning drier from the southwest through the afternoon, but staying windy with further spells of drizzle possible Maximum Temperature 15C.
Outlook for Friday to Sunday:
Dull, damp start Friday, with rain and blustery winds easing. Turning drier and brighter later across northern parts. Further strong winds and rain spreading northeast Saturday, and again on Sunday.
Day 6-7 and Week 2:
The first few days of November will likely see unsettled conditions with outbreaks of rain, followed by a more showery regime with strong winds and possibly gales at times. The north of the UK is more likely to see any longer spells of rain and showers which develop, as well as strong winds and possibly gales. By the end of the first week of November, there will be a transition from predominantly low pressure to high pressure, with winds becoming light. Initially in the period, temperatures will likely recover to near-normal. With the transition to high pressure, the UK will see drier and settled weather. Temperatures may start to feel rather cold, with overnight fog and frost becoming more common, particularly in the south.
Week 3 and 4:
Settled weather is likely to continue until the middle of November, with high pressure looking to dominate. This will bring dry and settled conditions, especially for the south of the UK whereas any wet windy weather will be mostly confined to the north. Confidence lowers for the second half of November but current signals suggest an autumnal setup with colder conditions developing and more frequent showers, with the heaviest of these showers affecting the east of the UK. Another spell of drier, more settled conditions is possible towards the end of November, but confidence remains low for this. Despite the settled conditions in the south temperatures are expected to be lower than average for the time of year, whereas they will be closer to normal in the north.
Met Office : South East England : 2020-10-28T01:18:35
Daylight : Kent
Day length is dusk to dawn. Times will vary a little if there is a hill on the horizon.
It should still be light enough to read at dawn and dusk, so there will be enough light for walking even earlier (later).
Moonlight : Kent
- The moon's phase or fracillum (percentage of the moon illuminated) doesn't vary much with location.
- A full moon is not just bigger, its much brighter. A half moon ('50%') give less than 5% of the illumination of a full moon. You can walk with a half moon if its high in the sky (after dusk for a growing moon, before dawn for a shrinking moon).
- Sky glow (light reflected by air or clouds) from nearby cities, and especially snow on the ground also effect light levels.
- Times will vary a few minutes, as (i) these figures are for the centre of the county the walk is in, (ii) if there are hills on the horizon, and (iii) if you are on a hill
- Of course, you need a cloudless night as well!
