High pressure will develop across the southern North Sea today and should keep things settled across the county. However, low pressure is expected to move up from Biscay tomorrow introducing a spell of fairly prolonged and heavy rain.


We are looking at a fine and settled day today. The overnight rain has cleared and clear blue skies extend right across the county. So we are expecting this sunshine to last right through the day with a just a light breeze, initially from the south-west, but tending to back more south-easterly during the course of the day. Temperatures today will climb to around 22C. A dry night will follow, although cloud amounts may build from the south towards dawn. Lows will fall to 14C.


There is an element of uncertainty in the forecast tomorrow, with the various models showingf some difference of opinion. Outbreaks of rain will be moving up from the south during the course of tomorrow morning, but we could see this rain moving more towards parts of East Anglia and the South-East and the county could escape with a mostly fine and dry day. It will turn cloudy at times though, more especially through the afternoon. Highs of 21C. Winds will remain light, east or south-easterly. The day will end dry, although some showers are likely to develop overnight. Lows will fall to 14C. Sunday is likely to remain rather showery, these showers turning heavier into the afternoon. Nevertheless, we could still see some spells of sunshine in between. Highs of 20C, falling overnight to 14C. Winds will be light and variable. High pressure will build in from the south-west for the Bank Holiday, producing a largely fine day with good spells of sunshine.
