Well, the week has absolutely flown by with all the excitement at Motorcycle Live 2017. We’ve only three days left of the show and to be quite honest with you, we don’t want it to end! We’ve thoroughly enjoyed meeting you all, seeing familiar faces and meeting new subscribers, so thank you for popping along to the stand. If you’re heading up to the show over the weekend, then be sure to come and say hello. You’ll find us in hall two, at stand C35 (opposite the Experience Adventure off-road course).
So, whether you’re heading up to the show or setting off for some excellent weekend riding, here’s what you can expect from the good old British weather this weekend.
Lovely start this morning, with beautifully clear blue skies, though pretty darn frosty earlier and it’s been snowing in the Scottish highlands. For the rest of the day, it’s looking like it’s going to remain dry and bright across England with some showers predicted for parts of Northern Ireland and Wales.
It’s going to get pretty chilly tonight across the UK, and there is a yellow weather warning in place for ice between 5pm tonight and 10am Saturday morning.
Saturday’s weather forecast
Saturday: Cold and quite windy with blustery, wintry showers across the north & west of the UK. Mainly dry and sunny across the south & east of the country. Stav D pic.twitter.com/F10yAZ73pe
Watch out for ice tomorrow morning and take extra care if you’re heading out on the roads on your bike, as the conditions will be very slippery. It’ll be cold and bright for most of the day across most of the UK, however, there are some wintry showers predicted for Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales over the course of the day.
These intermittent showers are likely to continue into the evening and night, with the rest of the UK mostly experience cloud cover, but remaining dry. As we approach late evening, there could also be some sleet in parts of northern Wales and Scotland.
Sunday’s weather forecast
Sunday: Fewer showers expected across western areas with perhaps more in the way of sunshine for many. Another cold day. Stav D pic.twitter.com/zlYFNpdEmj
Sunday will bring a cold and bright start across the UK in the morning, but as we pass lunchtime we can expect cloud cover to start to set in. As we approach late afternoon, there is heavy rain expected for Northern Ireland and western Scotland.
Sunday evening is looking pretty miserable and rainy for most of the UK, with exception to the south-east, which will be overcast but should remain dry.
