Week ahead

I thought I’d don my weather hat and take a look at the forecast for the week ahead. Please don’t shoot the messenger when I tell you it’s unsettled, which means we’ll all get some showers or longer spells of rain accompanied by brisk winds. It will also feel cold with temperatures below average and still a risk of night-time frosts (when it’s not raining of course!).

And the signs are this unsettled spell will continue through the weekend and into next week too. Which isn’t great news for sunbathers but good for the gardens. Although it will take an awful lot more rain over many more months to reverse the drought and hosepipe bans. Personally, I’m still hoping for a nice warm dry summer.
