Hopes for sunny weather

Runcorn & Widnes Weekly News - - Front Page -

FANS of the Royal fam­ily and sunny weather look set to have to wait un­til next week to find out if the grand bridge open­ing and visit from The Queen and Duchess of Sus­sex Meghan Markle will be blessed by fine weather or if the crowds will be drenched in show­ers.

At time of writ­ing, The Met Of­fice’s forecast for Widnes only ex­tended as far as Mon­day, June 11, and by pub­li­ca­tion day, to­day, is only due to reach Wed­nes­day.

Many will be hoping for a resur­gence of the hot sun­shine dur­ing May, which was the hottest May since records be­gan.

The tem­per­a­ture this week­end and into Mon­day is due to hover in the 14°-21°C range with a mix of sun and cloud.

Ac­cord­ing to the Met Of­fice, next week’s weather is likely to re­main mixed.

Its gen­eral forecast said: “A north-south split in the weather across the UK is likely at the start of the pe­riod with plenty of fine, sunny weather in the North with a chance of the odd shower.

“In con­trast the South is more likely to have more hu­mid, cloudy con­di­tions with per­haps some heavy, thun­dery down­pours.

“East­ern coastal coun­ties may con­tinue to be rather cool and grey at times with mist and low cloud spread­ing off the North Sea.

“Light winds, warm days and mild nights are widely ex­pected.

“Through the week sim­i­lar con­di­tions are likely to con­tinue, but show­ers may be­come more wide­spread across the North, mean­while the risk of thun­dery show­ers in the South may grad­u­ally re­duce.

“By the end of the pe­riod tem­per­a­tures may start to de­cline, es­pe­cially across the North.”
