THE sunshine of which Cumbernauld residents have basked in, in their gardens and parks looks all set to be over. 

“It is likely to be the longest spell of warm and settled UK summer weather since July 2006, where temperatures were above 28 °C in many areas for a fortnight,” the Met Office website exclaims. However, forecasts look to be pessimistic about Cumbernauld’s chances for more warm sunshine, next week.

Saturday heralds the return of Cumbernauld Gala Day, with forecasts now corrected to show that sunny intervals will be regular feature in the afternoon, with temperatures predicted to reach a maximum of 19C. 

Sunday, though, is a different story. The Met Office predicts that most of Sunday will be cloudy and overcast, with sunny intervals arriving after 7pm, until about 10pm. Sunday could see temperatures hit 17C – far below the 25C, which Cumbernauld has been enjoying this week.

Nick Grahame, Chief Forecaster at the Met Office, said: "We have high pressure over the UK at the moment which normally brings us fine and settled weather at this time of year.

"The current outlook suggests this may be dominating our weather through next week and possibly out towards the middle of July."

Forecasts by the Met Office, for Monday, suggest that the sun – and 20C and above temperatures – may well be over after Scotland saw its highest temperature of the year so far, on Tuesday 9th July, reaching 28.7 C at Strathallan Airfield. 

The Met Office predicts that Monday, in Cumbernauld, will see an entire day of cloudy, overcast conditions, with a maximum temperature of 17C; a minimum of 11C, feeling like 12C until the afternoon.
