WOMAD - Thursday July 24th to Sunday July 27th
Latest Forecast - Essentially dry, sunny spells or longer periods of sunshine, very warm.  Thunderstorm activity remains a threat.


A fine run of weather ended last week with some spectacular thunderstorm activity across a fair portion of the country, but the sting that was taken out of the heat was only temporary, and this week the warm temperatures are once again knitting together nicely to form a consistent run.  With values continuing to hit the late 20's Celsius, Friday and Saturday, (as with last week), look prime candidates to see thunderstorm activity and this time, perhaps more of a jolt before the heat rebuilds.  High pressure still seems to have the upper hand by the end of the month and into August, but within the system a distinct decay, readily allowing for rain to make more than just a fleeting visit.

As the school holidays get underway, it's a case of the best foot forward on Monday with plenty of dry and warm weather around.  However, the day does start rather cloudy across Scotland, with some patchy mist along portions of coastline to the east of England, and west of Wales.  These will burn away under the warm July morning sunshine and for here on in bar the odd shower, it's a glorious Monday.  A dry night to follow with some good cloud breaks across central and western areas.  Top temperature for Monday around the 28 Celsius mark, perhaps a little higher in sheltered areas, with the prospect of further hot temperatures across the south during the week to come.

A scattering of showers for the week ahead but the emphasis remains on the continued run of very warm temperatures.  High pressure stabilizes affairs to generate a chiefly settled picture, allowing temperatures to regularly maintain a presence in the mid to late 20's.  So, very warm to locally hot, with a distinct possibility in sheltered spots of seeing 30 Celsius breached.  However, with the high temperatures, we will also continue to run the gauntlet with thunderstorm activity, largely to the warmer south.  For WOMAD, the festival at Charlton Park in Malmesbury, a risk of thunderstorm activity but on balance, looking essentially dry, some limited spells of sunshine, but feeling very warm.

Sunday July 20th 2014


Heavy thundery showers will punch their way south east to north west during Saturday morning, delivering torrential rain, lightning displays, hail, and the possible risk of tornado activity.  In what will be a very messy affair, further thundery shower outbreaks then establish themselves to the south during the afternoon, with a rash of showers to the north.  All in all, plenty of heavy showers countrywide with no area really escaping the deluges, although coastal regions to the east and west look like having the best of whatever dry weather the day has to offer.  A sweltering day for many, with 30 or 31 Celsius likely to be achieved.
