Nestling at the northern most tip of the Bay Normand-Breton, exposed to the Atlantic Ocean to the west and suffering the winds funnelling down the English Channel, Alderney, like all islands, is very much aware of its weather.

Our dedicated weather guru is Grant Le Marchant (AWT Director).

This, along with resources such as the Jersey Meterological Office, makes the lives of all of us at the Alderney Wildlife Trust that little bit easier.

                                        DAILY WEATHER FORECAST

Alderney weather forecast issued 0800 BST Tuesday 17th July 2018.

Good morning, a weak ridge of high pressure extends over our area, this has introduced a NW airflow. The jetstream at present is fairly fractured and the remnants are well to the North of Britain, this is the main driver of our weather and because of its current location this is one of the main reasons why our weather has been so settled. Looking ahead, little change expected, there will be the odd hiccup in terms of a temporary breakdown with the increasing risk of thunderstorms coming up from the South but in general benign dry conditions continuing as we go into August.

Weather for today, feeling a little fresher today behind the weak cold front which passed through overnight. Some sunny periods today but the risk of showers can't be ruled out.

Winds, NW-W F1 to F3.

Sea State, Slight.

Temps. Max. 20C. Min. 13C.
