Weekly Update 8/5/22 

Weekly forecast

The forecast for this week looks to remain mainly dry but with a moderate to fresh breeze making it feel cooler than the weekend that we have just had esp. on Tuesday and Wednesday. There will be light cloud, and sunny intervals from Thursday onwards, with maximum temperatures 16 to 20 and min 9 to 13.

At present from next Sunday 15/5 it looks like we are due a much warmer spell for a week or so but there is still plenty of time for that to change.
