Unsettled weather for bank holiday weekend in Northamptonshire

Pitsford Weather station forecasters say we will experience unsettled weather across the county this weekend.

Sharp showers on Saturday morning were expected to continue throughout much of the day, turning heavier into the afternoon. Temperatures on Saturday were set to climb to around 19C, with showers to continue overnight, becoming lighter. Lows will fall to around 14C. Winds will tend to remain light throughout the day, south or south-westerly at first but veering steadily north-westerly by the end of the day.

There will be some showery outbreaks of rain during Sunday, but there were generally expected to be improvements as a ridge of high pressure builds up from the south. Certainly by late afternoon/early evening we should all be enjoying some fine sunshine. Temperatures will climb to around 19C, falling overnight to 12C. Winds will be light north-westerlies at first, becoming variable as the day wears on.

As for the bank holiday, the day should start fine and dry, perhaps with some early morning sunshine. However, cloud will build fairly quickly from the west bringing with it some outbreaks of mainly light rain by late morning. This rain could then ease off during the afternoon, returning by early evening. Highs on Monday will reach 17C, falling overnight just a couple of degrees to 15C. Winds will be gentle to moderate and south-westerly.
