    Its not quite a "done deal" yet, although models are slowly converging on the idea of higher pressure over the bank holiday weekend. Temperatures are likely to climb to somewhere around average for the time of year (low 20s possibly) by the end of the week, which should hopefully remove the risk of ground frost at night. The high pressure is complicated by a weak upper trough which is likely to produce troublesome cloud and possibly some rain in places at the weekend although details are subject to change.

    Into June there is a lot of scatter, but the general consensus is that any high pressure will not last long before lows start to move in again - the classic 3 fine days and a thunderstorm scenario. Some of the runs have us back to square one, with cool and showery conditions as early as next Tuesday. Others keep the high pressure influence for a little longer, but I don't think we can expect any prolonged dry and warm weather in the first week or so of June. Things can always change, but I think this summer could be a case of make hay while the sun shines, as it may not last for long.

    I could easily be wrong.

    It's cooler out there tonight. Forecast a low of 4 or 5 .

    Models are backing off the cold a bit, hopefully they were over doing it. Worth being prepared though just in case.

    I've got lows of 5c dropping to a possible 3c in a weeks time!
    Not good at all.

    Sorry to sound like a broken record, but be aware that the models are starting to indicate the possibility of another cold spell next weekend, with the potential for frost at night. Showers could turn wintery over high ground in the north. This is not a certainty yet, but if you are thinking of planting out tender plants, be prepared to protect them.

    Before that we continue the unsettled, often showery and sometimes thundery weather that we have had recently.

    I am putting the squashes in under frost shields and due to wind they look like staying on to the end of the month to stop the wind wrenching the plants back and forward stopping them establishing.
    It looks like we will need support for everything.

    Thankfully the models seem to be backing off another cold spell, although it is still showing on a few of the runs. Hopefully we have seen the back of the frosts after tonight, but it looks like the unsettled weather continues with plenty of rain in the forecast after tomorrow's deluge.

    I'm desperate to get stuff moved out too as I am running out of space under lights. Yes milder at the weekend, but most of the model runs are showing another cold spell afterwards sometime around 12-15 May. Nothing is certain at that range but it is looking increasingly likely to happen. Some of the recent GFS runs have been completely crazy, forecasting heavy snow in the south next week, but I think that is unlikely to happen. There is still little sign of anything better than around average over the next couple of weeks, I'm afraid, although as always that could change.

    A short break from frost tonight while we have heavy rain and gales instead. Back to frost for the rest of the week before something possibly a little less cold arrives (with more rain) at the weekend.

I have a week off and it's going to throw it down and then go cold again!

    All we need now is some sort of global pandemic and I might as well give up

    Right I am officially boycotting and ignoring the weather, I shall catch a chill!
    I feel much the same. I sowed my Eskimo carrots today, wondering if it was too cold, but I normally do it in early April.

    The average minimum temperature in the CET region for April was just 1C - the coldest April average minimum on record. May does not look like being a particularly pleasant month at the moment, but there is time for that to change.
