GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

A warm front will tend to slide down the east coast today, weakening as it does so. High pressure will then develop over southern Scandinavia shielding the country from the next set of Atlantic fronts.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

It is going to remain quite a cloudy day today. Already we have seen some light showers and whilst further showers cannot be ruled out altogether, on balance it should be a largely dry day across the county. Temperatures today will climb to around 11C with winds light and variable. It will be dry everywhere overnight with lows falling to around 7C.

OUTLOOK

Saturday could bring a better chance of seeing some brighter spells through the day, but generally there will still be quite a bit of cloud around and the possibility of one or two light showers will remain particularly through the afternoon. It will feel a touch milder with the wind changing direction and picking up to a moderate southerly by the end of the day. Highs will reach 13C during the day, falling overnight to 8C. Sunday will start off dry, but outbreaks of rain will move eastwards through the county during the afternoon, some of this rain turning quite heavy for a time. Again it will be a touch milder with highs of 14C. The breeze will be a moderate southerly to begin with, but will tend to ease and veer south-westerly as the rain clears during the evening. Lows overnight will fall to 7C. The Bank Holiday should remain dry across the county and we could even see some brightness. Sunshine will definitely come through by the evening. Winds will be light and westerly.
