GENERAL SITUATION ACROSS THE UK

Low pressure still remains fairly stationary west of Ireland with a warm sector across much of the British Isles. A cold front will move in from the west later today introducing fresher air.

FORECAST FOR NORTHAMPTONSHIRE

There seems little change in the weather since yesterday and for much of the day it is going to remain fairly cloudy. Most of the showers that we were expecting are focused to the north of the county, and for the rest of the day the majority of us will stay dry. It will continue to feel humid until the cold front moves through and highs today will top out at 21C. There is the possibility of ending the day with some brightness and certainly a fresher night will follow with lows falling to 12C. Winds will remain light today, initially from the south-east but tending to veer westerly.

OUTLOOK

We could see some initial sunshine tomorrow morning, but it will tend to cloud over fairly quickly and the rest of the day is likely to remain fairly overcast. However, it will remain dry. Highs tomorrow will reach 20C, falling overnight to 12C with a light to gentle westerly breeze. In fact, there will be very little change on Friday, dry but still mostly cloudy with limited amounts of sunshine. Highs will reach 21C with a light south-westerly breeze. Lows overnight will fall to 14C.
