High cloud and hazy sunshine making for a pleasant and comfortable day. On the land, temperatures won’t be quite as high as Friday. But in the sea, the waves will be higher.

MONDAY AND TUESDAY

A force 3-4 NW’ly breeze will moderate the temperature, whilst the sun blazes away in a mostly blue sky. The odd big bubbly cloud may drift by, casting a brief shadow or two, but showers are looking highly unlikely, or at least very infrequent.

To make the most of the weather, head to a SE facing beach such as Fermain, Moulin Huet, Saints or Petit Bot. Furthermore, the spring tides will expose lots of gorgeous sand there, during the late mornings and early afternoons.

WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY

High pressure will extend over us from the Atlantic, giving us a gentle N’ly airflow on Wednesday, but possibly a still and smouldering day on Thursday. Watch this space.

The next forecast update will be on Sunday.
