Gloucestershire weather outlook with Ian Thomas
HIGH pressure has dominated much of the month so far and this weekend is no exception. The high pressure will rebuild into Saturday and we can expect a day of good sunny spells and some patchy fair weather cloud at times. Temperatures will climb in the sun to 18-21C (65-70F) and make for a pleasant day.
Remaining dry overnight with lows of 11-13C (52-55F) and dry through most of Sunday although there will more cloud, more breeze but less sun. Later in the day Atlantic weather fronts will approach to give some patchy light rain overnight. Temperatures a degree down on yesterday but still pretty reasonable all round. Monday should remain settled before further rain or showers through the week.
With September already half done, we can at least say that the weather did some justice to our well-being during the first 10 days.
High pressure built in during the last two days of August and remained there until September 10. With it came some impressive temperatures all over the land. I recorded a high of 24.4C (77F) on the 4th, the highest early September reading since September 2006. A maximum of 29.3C (85F) was reached at Cambridge (Cambridgeshire) on the 9th and this too was the highest since 2006.

The good weather certainly brought out the crowds as I witnessed last weekend. Jilly and I spent the Saturday at Weston and once the early fog lifted, it was more or less wall-to-wall sunshine barring some cirrus cloud at times.
Sunday saw many folk enjoying a walk along the canal between Purton and Sharpness and the church at Purton was doing good trade with tea and cake. However, cooler air moved in midweek from a polar direction but things have now picked up again.
