Get set for a sunny weekend with soaring temperatures

Malvern Gazette: RAYS: The forecast is for sun this weekend RAYS: The forecast is for sun this weekend

PEOPLE in Worcester might actually have to reach for the suncream this weekend with temperatures set to soar well into double figures.

Milder spring air is heading to the county tomorrow (Saturday) with temperatures getting as high as 15C and even 18C on Sunday with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Ian Michaelwaite, of Pershore-based netweather.tv, said it could be toasty this weekend after a touch of frost first thing tomorrow morning which will lift around dawn.

"There's some warm moist air coming up from the south which is going to make feel like towards the end of spring rather than the beginning," he said. "As we head into the day there will be a bit of cloud around and a bit of mist to begin with. It will be a mixture of patchy cloud and brighter spells.

"Temperatures will be 14C to 15C, all in all not a bad spring day. You might have to break out the suncream possibly for the first time.

"On Sunday we should be enjoying pretty reasonable outbreaks of sunshine and 17C or even 18C. In the afternoon you could have almost unbroken sunshine."

And Mr Michaelwaite said the drier weather was here to stay for the time being.

"There's no sign of rain on the horizon until the end of next week," he said. "There will be nice, mild calm days."

Well it is called the WORCESTER News . Clues in the name. Try the South Wales Argus web site instead for something a bit more local.

But go to the Ledbury Reporter Website which IS in Herefordshire and you will find this exact same article; the Muppets at Newquest ( the American owners of Worcester News etc could not even be bothered to alter the county name to give it local relevance although the weather is no respecter of county boundaries which is what I was trying to highlight and why I think this article is so ridiculous and parochial. Most demarcation lines are somewhat arbitrary, if I lived a few hundred yards up the street I would be in Herefordshire. I wonder what the weather will be like there this weekend?
