The weather has been a little bit here, there and everywhere recently, but it looks like Prestonians need to prepare for downpours and thunder as we head into the weekend.


August looks set to be a bit of a wash-out, but we’re still hoping for some sunshine soon.

We’ve had changing yellow weather warnings from the Met Office this week, but here is what to expect over the weekend:

Thursday evening

5pm – It will be raining, but it will still be quite warm at 18 degrees

6pm – If you’re heading out this evening, take your umbrella, because it’ll be raining all night!

7pm – 17 degrees and more rain

8pm – Isn’t it meant to be summer? It’s still going to be 17 degrees with rain, and apparently a bit of sun

9pm – Sun, rain and thunder is on the cards!

10pm – Thunderstorms ahead now with rain

11pm – The thunderstorm is set to last now until around midnight


12am – Just raining now, you’ll probably be able to get some sleep!

1am – Just rain

2am – Cloudy now, but hopefully you’ll be well asleep anyway…

3am – Still cloudy

4am – It’s going to start raining again

5am – More rain

6am – Shock horror, it’s apparently going to be sunny! (And raining)

7am – We’re starting the day with sun and rain at 15 degrees

8am – More sun, but more rain

9am – Heading up to 16 degrees now, but it’s still going to be raining

10am – It’s the same story at 10am

11am – Heading up to 17 degrees now, but the rain hasn’t gone away (nor has the sun though, so thank goodness for small mercies)

12pm – 17 degrees with rain and sun

1pm – We do wish the rain would go away (and not come again another day) but it’s still 17 degrees with rain and sun

2pm – Rain, sun and 17 degrees

3pm – More of the same

4pm – Temperatures rise to 18 degrees but the rain is still persistent. It’s still set to be sunny though

5pm – Conditions say the same

6pm – Temperatures drop back to 17 and it’s still sunny and rainy

7pm – Conditions stay the same

8pm – And again. We can’t complain too much though, it is sort of set to be sunny all day…

9pm – Rainy and 16 degrees

10pm – Rainy and 15 degrees, so if you’re still out, we hope you’ve got your umbrella

11pm – Conditions stay the same

4am – No rain still and it’s 14 degrees

5am – Oh dear…the rain has started. 14 degrees still

6am – Conditions staying the same

We can only hope that the new week will bring sun (ideally without the rain) because we don’t really feel like we’ve had much of a Great British Summer in 2021!
