NORTH Devon can look forward to some fairly mild weather for this time of year, as highs of 16C today fall only slightly throughout the week.

Moderately cold mornings with some rain will be followed by drier afternoons which will continue through to the evening for the most part.

The afternoons bring the promise of sunny spells. The lowest afternoon temperature should be around 12C to 14C, with only Wednesday seeing light early evening showers.

Late evening showers may continue into morning before giving way to the milder temperatures.

Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to hit a peak of 15C while Thursday sees a slight change in the air flow with colder, south-westerly air coming in from the sea replacing the milder air from the south east, which comes in from the continent.

The peak temperature on Thursday will therefore dip to around 13C, which is roughly the average for this time of year.

Friday will be a dry day generally, following a similar pattern but with a slightly increased chance of light showers in some areas throughout. Temperatures will be around 12C to 13C.

According to MET Office forecasters Dan Williams, looking ahead Saturday looks to be the better day of an unimpressive weekend with some cloud and the chance of light showers. Peak temperatures will be 12C.

Sunday could be the worst of the week, with more light and persistent rain at times.

Mr Williams said it is hard to pin down exactly when you will see showers but we will generally enjoy a good deal of dry weather and nothing unusual for this time of year.

He added that it won’t feel particularly windy, with gusts near the coast of between 15mph and 25mph.
