When will northern Lincolnshire start to warm up?

After a frosty, cool April, it is hoped that May will bring sunshine to north Lincolnshire.

April 2021 had the lowest average April minimum temperatures in the UK since 1922, despite long hours of sunshine.

It had previously been reported that April saw the highest air freeze in 60 years, with an average of 13 days, beating the previous record of 11 days in 1970 – records dating back to 1960.

This number of air frosts is more typical for December, January or February, while the average number in April is usually five days.

Not only that, but early preliminary figures from the Met Office’s National Climate Information Center show April had the third lowest average minimum temperature in the UK for the month since records began in 1884.

After a frosty, cool April, it is hoped that May will bring sunshine to north Lincolnshire.

The average daily maximum temperatures were also below normal, but not as high as the minimum temperatures.

So it is to be hoped that May will bring Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Scunthorpe at least average temperatures despite its wet and windy start.

Temperatures are expected to stay between 11 ° C and 16 ° C this week, with sunny intervals and rains scattered throughout.

Winds could reach up to 36 MPH on Saturday, which is expected to be the worst day of the week, with rainfall between 10 a.m. and 10 p.m.

Unfortunately, the next week doesn’t look much better as the weather “will remain choppy with rain showers”, according to The Met Office.

A Met Office spokesman said: “More rains and strong winds are pulling into much of the UK into the new week, with some mountain snow in the north.

“Temperatures are almost average again, but often windy and there is a risk of coastal storms.

“After that we are likely to remain choppy with showers or rains across the UK, but gradually drier from the west later with lighter winds.

“The best time for nice and dry weather will likely be later in this period towards the south, interspersed with unexplained showers and rainy periods from the northwest.

“Temperatures are probably colder than normal in the north, but more normal in the south.”

Looking towards the end of May, the temperature is expected to warm to “average” for the time of year, but the rain is expected to continue.

The Met Office spokesman added, “Confidence in this outlook is low, as is typical of late spring.

“A mixture of sunny spells and showers is likely, especially in the areas in the south, which are the calmest and driest times during this period.

“Heading north there is an increased likelihood of choppy weather, as longer periods of rain and strong winds sometimes come from the Atlantic.”

So it seems that people in Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Scunthorpe will have to wait until the end of May to the beginning of June to be able to enjoy the sun again.
