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 Thursday 24th May 2018.

Good morning, a NE'ly flow still covers our area. 

Interesting few days coming up, over the last three days we've dodged the bullet as any rain has moved up to our East before affecting Southern England, some of this rain has been thundery in nature and locally heavy. Upper air coming up from the South is going to get quite warm, this in turn will trigger thunderstorms over the weekend. These are going to be hit and miss, although Saturday morning looking to be a bit wet before things dry out temporarily in the afternoon. This type of weather difficult to forecast.  

Weather for today, a bit murky at first with haze/mist, this should lift to give some sunny periods. Things are starting to warm up over nearby France and thunderstorms could well develop there later. I don't think these will reach as far as here and should continue the trend by moving up North out to our East..

Winds, N'ly light F1 to F3.

Sea State, Smooth or Slight.

Temps. Max. 16C. Min. 10C.
