Blackpool Beach is the perfect destination to hang out with family and friends and provides the perfect setting to watch a glorious sunset, with views stretching across Southport, the Lake District and the Isle of Man on a clear day .
However, we all know that a day by the sea can quickly be ruined if the weather turns bad! So we’ve taken a look at the weather in Blackpool this weekend so you can plan the perfect weekend in the seaside resort.
The Met Office forecast says it will be a mixed day, with some sunny spells and windy showers. Wind speeds could reach up to 30mph, which may make it feel a little cooler than the highs of 17C that have been predicted. Rain is expected to start around noon, with the worst showers expected around 3pm.
Weather experts say there might be “a strange rumble of thunder”, but it will feel “cooler than recently”. Light showers are expected from 4 p.m. and will last intermittently for the rest of Saturday. It will remain breezy overnight, especially on the beach and docks, with nighttime lows of 9°C.
Sunday will see another day of sunny spells and scattered, windy showers. However, the good news is that the showers “should be less frequent and less heavy compared to Saturday”. There will be some light rain in the early morning, but the weather should remain clear but cloudy until around noon. There will then be a few showers from noon to 3 p.m., before clearing for the rest of the afternoon.
However, the Met Office has predicted winds could reach 41mph in Blackpool, with the strongest gusts expected between midday and 6pm. Highs of 16°C are expected during the day, but that might seem a few degrees lower if you’re in windy conditions. A few light showers may return around 8 p.m. and continue overnight into Monday.
The Met Office outlook for Monday to Wednesday next week reads: “Sunshine and showers continue into Monday. The sun is expected to be replaced by further rain on Tuesday followed by showers on Wednesday. Temperatures around the average for the end of June.”
