Granada Weather - Towards the Weekend

Beeston, Cheshire TONY MARSH Photo:

It's been a glorious week with high pressure sitting just north of the UK - feeding in settled conditions, warm air from the continnent and plenty of sunshine.

As we head into the weekend conditions change a little as the high moves northwards and away - but it's not entirely bad news. Although temperatures will dip a little by Sunday they will remain at the average or just above. Any rain that's due on Saturday looks like arriving later in the day with the worst of it coming through the northwest overnight.

Here's your Granada forecast for the next few days......

A cold front from the northwest late on Saturday will freshen things up from the northwest by Sunday

REST OF THURSDAY:

Any fair weather cloud will soon clear to leave a fine evening with plenty of late, warm sunshine. It will remain dry overnight with mostly clear skies. Some mist and low cloud could develop towards the Pennines later. Lows 15°C.

FRIDAY:

Another fine, dry and warm day is expected with just a little cloud developing in places, mainly during the afternoon. Winds will remain light throughout the day. Highs again to 27°C (81°F).
