Forecasters say Northamptonshire is set for a wet jubilee weekend

Forecasters at Pitsford Hall weather station say Northamptonshire is set for a wet jubilee weekend.

The weather station has forecast that rain is set to get heavier as the day progresses today (Saturday, June 2).

A spokesman said: “It’s a damp and drizzly picture across the county this morning and one that is expected to continue throughout the day with very little prospect of seeing any sunshine.

“The drizzle is likely to turn heavier into the afternoon before more prolonged outbreaks of rain move into the county this evening.

“Temperatures today will climb to a modest 14C, falling overnight to 9C.”

The spokesman said that the rain was forecast to continue on into the night.

The weather station is predicting another “disappointing” day tomorrow (Sunday, June 3).

The spokesman said: “We are looking at an overcast day with showers and/or longer spells of rain. It will be a cool day too with temperatures unlikely to climb much above 10C with winds generally light and from the east or south-east.

“Showers and outbreaks of rain will continue on throughout the evening and overnight with temperatures falling a few degrees to 7C.”

But while Monday is also forecast to be a drizzly day, the weather station is forecasting an improvement in the outlook.

The spokesman said: “As for Monday, we should see a slow improvement with persistent rain during the morning clearing to an afternoon of mainly light showers.”

The weather station is forecasting that Tuesday will start off dry but showers will develop later in the day.
