Not much rain – but getting much colder

Not much rain coming up in the next week. Here’s the forecast totals over the next 9 days:

With winter here right now the dry usually means one thing -the chance of some cold nights! Not looking too cold tonight:

…but with a cold dry change sweeping through this weekend it’s going to be a cold start to next week. These are the forecast temps as we wake up next Monday morning – some decent frosts around:

…time to get the firewood in. Always the chance of a few showers over the next couple of weeks but no signs of any bigger rainy spells at this time – we were very blessed to get the rains last week.

COLD in Europe, rain for us?

We’re going to be slowly leaving summer behind us soon, and heading into a slightly cooler Autumn. Still hot here for now though – and spare a thought for everyone in Western Europe – going to get very cold and snowy there over the next week. The video below shows how much above / below normal temperatures are likely to get:

Back closer to home we’re likely to see some rain tomorrow as a change moves up the coast. Likely to be fairly showery in nature so we could see a heap, or we could see much of it move to our north once again. Best chance in some time of decent rain though…get ready for it to green up again!

Forecast rain over the next week:

By no means certain we’ll see that much, but the increased rain on the chart does highlight that models are *starting* to see a potential change in the patterns, with increased rainfall looking more likely over coming weeks. Now a waiting game, with fingers crossed…
