What is the long-term forecast for Preston?

Looking further ahead into next week, “The unsettled, windy regime looks set to continue through Monday and Tuesday, bringing sunshine and bands of heavy blustery showers.

“From mid-week there will probably be a transition away from the unsettled theme with generally drier conditions becoming established, any rain and stronger winds probably becoming confined to the far northwest.

“Bright or sunny spells are possible but mist and fog could be rather persistent for some, especially in central and southeastern areas.

“Mild or very mild for many and any overnight frosts should be mainly confined to the north.

“A return to more unsettled weather may occur at the very end of next week or into the following weekend.”
