Low Zachery will slowly be moving away to the east during the next 24 hours or so allowing pressure to rise for a time before weather fronts associated with the remnants of ex-Hurricane Cristobal brush the UK later on Sunday and into Monday. It's not all bad news though as we are expecting the fronts to be fairly weak and high pressure is still expected to take control during the course of next week bringing plenty of fine and warm weather for many regions.

Back to this morning and showers are continuing to affect many northern and western regions, some of these on the heavy side, but towards central, southern and eastern parts there is plenty of dry weather around with some sunny spells. Once again it will be another day of sunshine and showers, the heaviest and most frequent of the showers always towards the north with many parts of the south and later the west seeing only isolated showers and more in the way of sunny spells as pressure rises from the west. Temperatures for many parts will again be close to normal today and it will feel warm in any sunny spells towards the south and east.

Tonight will become mostly fine and dry in most places although the odd shower may continue around windward coasts, especially in the northeast. Temperatures will drop back a touch, down into single figures in the north, but not as chilly as they were earlier in the week. Looking ahead to tomorrow and it should be a mostly fine and dry day for most places with some warm sunshine, but thickening cloud and freshening winds will bring a little rain to the far northwest later in the day.

It's Stratospheric Baby!


Yeah, the cow's back! Right, looking more than likely now as though high pressure will build across the UK for the first half of September. However, meteorologically speaking there are plenty of other changes afoot which are worth taking a look at.

September is usually a month of two contrasts. You know the whole Lion/Lamb thing? Well, it's pretty much a similar kind of event with September. The difference is that September, like March, sees the Northern Hemisphere start to take on a wider contrasts in air masses. The North Pole starts to cool as daylight finishes for the Summer, whilst the equator is still as warm as ever.

There are also some strange goings on in the upper stratosphere over the North Pole too as the Polar Vortex starts to become established. As a result we will start to see the jet stream across the Atlantic start to intensify during the next two or three weeks. So, no wet and wild weather just yet, but think of it as the Atlantic just popping down the gym for a fortnight and will be working out. Get ready to see it flex those new muscles in a couple of weeks or so....

Signs Of Improvement


Nope, we don't mean with the Metcheck forecasters sense of humour sadly, but tentative signs now of high pressure building across the UK during the first week of September. Strangely enough, the main driving factor of high pressure building is in fact remnants of Hurricane Cristobal which races across the Atlantic but heads North towards Iceland.

You see, this is natural physics in action. Low pressure will force air to rise which is great.. but that air has to go somewhere. Imagine when you were younger and you would dig holes (perhaps you're still doing this?) in the ground and then throwing the soil out. Eventually it will form a mound of dirt, on one side if it is windy enough. In the atmospheres case this is air. The air being sucked up by Hurricane Cristobal is deflected to the East of it and in turn builds an area of high pressure with all that descending air. The one difference between a transient high (which Cristobal creates) and something like the Azores high (semi-permanent) is that transient highs tend to get moved along rather quickly by any incoming area of low pressure from the West.

So, that's next weeks weather in a nutshell, high pressure building in from the West but expect a few complications as transient high pressure areas are reliant on the exact track and intensity of what is creating them.
