Planning a quick getaway? To help you make the most of your outdoor leisure time, weathertrending picks out the Weekend SweetSpot – an area of the UK that we think looks one of the better placed, weather-wise, for the upcoming weekend.
The weather will be blowing in from the Atlantic this weekend. So it’s the more sheltered eastern parts of the UK that will be best-placed to avoid most of the wind, rain and snow.
Just an hour or two from London is a county of wide-open vistas, quaint seaside harbours and some of the most famous artistic views in the world. For such a relatively small county, Suffolk is not short of variety.
‘The Haywain’ and ‘Flatford Mill’ will come to life again as you wander through Constable Country. Soak in the quintessential rural settings that inspired one of our most celebrated artists.
Then you can head to the coast to breathe in the salty sea air at Orford, before strolling along the pebbly beach at Aldeburgh.
For culture vultures, the county offers plenty to immerse oneself in too. Perched above the reed beds at Snape, The Maltings is one of the world’s leading centres of music.
The weekend will probably start and end on a dry note. There will be rain too, but much of this looks set to fall overnight. It will feel bracing in the wind for those walks. But generally conditions will not be as cold as in recent days. And thankfully, disruptive snowfall is not expected.
