Summer coming
Much warmer next week

Issued: 0943 Wednesday 21st April 2010
Duty forecaster: John Ejdowski


Low rainfall amounts

Overall we keep a ridge of high pressure across Britain for much of the upcoming week though a couple of fronts will affect the country at times. High pressure redevelops to the south east and as the winds come around from the south, temperatures are set to rise to well above normal next week with a few summery days to come. Late in the forecast period we may see a more general breakdown but confidence is rather low at this stage.
