Bank holiday weather set to be a washout
9:30am Saturday 25th August 2012 in News
The bank holiday weekend in Haringey is set to be a washout, with wind and rain threatening to ruin the three days off.
After a blisteringly hot spell last weekend, forecasters are predicting that areas of low pressure will sweep in from the west, bringing wet weather and temperatures that will not reach above 20°C.
Last weekend, temperatures as high as 32°C were recorded, but the thermometer is expected to struggle to replicate anywhere near that in the coming days.
Paul Knightley, senior forecaster at MeteoGroup, said: “Last week's hot weather is being shoved aside rather rudely by a succession of areas of low pressure coming in from the west.
“Bank holiday Monday could see wind and rain spreading in from the south-west. It's certainly not looking good for the weekend and you could say it's going to be typical bank holiday weather.”
