Met Office Forecast

South East England

Fine with warm sunshine Sunday. Rain early Monday, brighter later.

Today:

Staying fine throughout, with plenty of sunshine. Eventually becoming very warm after a chilly start, although the developing southerly breeze will temper this a little. Maximum Temperature 21C.

Tonight:

Fine but breezy during the evening, however becoming cloudier later in the night with a band of rain spreading eastwards to end the night. Minimum Temperature 7C.

Monday:

A band of rain should continue its erratic progress eastwards, eventually clearing to leave sunny spells but also isolated showers. Cooler than on Sunday, but temperatures remaining above average. Maximum Temperature 17C.

Outlook for Tuesday to Thursday:

Fine throughout, with good deal of bright and sunny weather. Chilly by night, perhaps with some fog, but becoming very warm by day.

Day 6-7 and Week 2:

Warm with long spells of sunshine on Thursday, with the highest temperatures most likely in the southeast. It should be predominately dry, though the far northwest could see some rain later on. Moving into Friday and Saturday, there indications that high pressure could return to give further settled conditions, with the south likely to remain dry. However, the west and northwest could see rain or showers at times. Looking further ahead in this period, there should be a good deal of dry and settled weather with spells of sunshine. The driest conditions and highest temperatures are mostly likely towards the south, and whilst still warm in the north, there may some windier and wetter periods at times and a risk of overnight frosts.

Week 3 and 4:

Although confidence is low during this time period, the most probable scenario is that dry weather should dominate, with some interludes of more changeable weather at times. Towards the end of the period, there appears to be some signals that it may be drier towards the northwest UK, with some wetter and windier weather further south. Temperatures are likely to vary around the average or even slightly above, with some large variations between day and night.

Notes

  • 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, and, (ii) if there are hills on the horizon.
  • Of course, you need a cloudless night as well!
