WEEKEND WATCH DOESN’T NEED TO GO IN SEARCH OF THE SUN – IT’S FOUND US

WHISTLESTOP LOOK AT WHAT’S IN STORE WEATHER WISE FOR THE NEXT FOUR DAYS

WELCOME to not so much a Friday Fourcast as a scorchcast – with our whistlestop look at the weather from Friday through to Monday.

If there’s a late staycation on your agenda, then you’ve picked the right week to take a short break.

The weather’s set fair until at least Thursday with temperatures soaring – rising appreciably on Monday to 27C and hitting 28C (that’s 81F in old money) on Tuesday which looks like being the hottest of the month.

That 28C has some way to go to beating the all-time September ‘high’ of 35.6C, set on the second day of the month in 1906 at Bawtry in south Yorkshire (where else, as my great-uncle Jack always reckoned everything was “bigger and better” there ).

What a swelter: Warm and welcoming temperatures

That temperature remains the hottest September temperature of any day in the UK and the eighth-hottest day overall in the 20th century.

Your Friday Fourcast is part of Atherstone Nub News bringing you a more localised weather service which you can access from our news platform at any time.

FRIDAY: Dry, warm with the sun competing with high cloud except around lunchtime when it thickens. Top temp, a welcome 19C.

SATURDAY: Rise and shine early as the best of the weather is before mid-day. Remaining dry but

SUNDAY: More the same today, a real lazy hazy Sunday with that temperature climbing to 22C. Barbie weather but remember the rule of six!

MONDAY: What a belter. Wall-to-wall sunshine from dawn til dusk and a gorgeous 27C (81F) . .. that’s more like it.

And remember, whatever you've got planned and whether you’re in Atherstone or picturesque Ambleside at the head of Lake Windermere this weekend, you're only a click away from the 'town in your pocket' at Nub News

A message from the Editor, Nick Hudson


Hi, I'm Nick Hudson, the Editor of Atherstone Nub News.

I began my local news career almost half a century ago by covering the town for the old Atherstone, Nuneaton & Bedworth Observer. I attended the Shrovetide Ball Game and reported on the old Southern League Premier side Atherstone Town when ex-England keeper Gil Merrick was the manager, coaching a young Gerry Peyton who went on to hold the No 1 jersey for the Republic of Ireland. Later I was to be the first team captain of Atherstone Hockey Club, and its chairman.

I'm now back to my roots and I want you - the great people of Atherstone - to join me in making the news in your own images. We're going back in time to resurrect a bygone golden age of local reporting while embracing all the advantages of the modern digital era where information is available 24/7 with "your town in your pocket".

We're here to get to the heart and soul of the community, delivering local news and covering national issues on your doorstep. There will always be a good read on Atherstone Nub News - because it's about you.

You can contact me with your Atherstone news by phoning 07852 490666 or by emailing [email protected].
