Scattered Heavy Showers

The stand-off between low pressure over the Atlantic and high pressure to the northeast continues today with the weather front that has been slowly moving north-eastwards during the past 24 hours still plaguing north-eastern regions today. Low pressure does look set to win the battle by the weekend though as it winds itself up and moves in from the southwest bringing a pretty changeable spell of weather which will then last throughout next week with it also turning colder from the north.

Many areas are starting off rather cloudy and misty this morning with some fog patches over central and south-western regions. Thicker cloud and outbreaks of rain are continuing to affect much of north-eastern Scotland, with some rain still over parts of East Anglia. As we go through today that rain band will slowly edge a little further northeast meaning that for the far northeast of Scotland, Shetland and Orkney it will remain dull and damp all day. Elsewhere skies will tend to brighten as we go through the day with some warm sunny spells coming through, but by this afternoon some heavy showers will break out, these most likely over central, northern and eastern parts where thunder is a possibility. Temperatures will be close to or just above normal for many, feeling warm in the brighter east.

The showers will tend to die out tonight with many places turning dry with some mist and fog patches forming. However showers may well return to eastern counties of England and Scotland as that weather front starts to move back westwards again. Looking ahead to tomorrow and many eastern regions will be rather cloudy with some rain or heavy showers but elsewhere a mixture of sunny spells and more scattered showers can be expected.

American Tornado Outbreak

If you have friends and family living in the United States then you may well already have heard about the severe weather outbreak that is expected to occur this weekend across Tornado Alley.

We are now at the time of year when the tornado season really gets under way so no real surprises on that front. However the set-up for this weekend is looking particularly concerning as it looks like a very sharp dry line will develop and move slowly eastwards across Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. This refers to the very dry air from the Colorado Rockies descending downwards meeting the very moist airmass coming up from the Gulf of Mexico.

The outcome of this dry line for this particular event could see violent thunderstorms breaking out containing large (grapefruit sized) hail and tornadoes across Tornado Alley this weekend bringing the risk of significant damage and destruction. Not only this but torrential downpours of rain will lead to flash flooding.

Our Metcheck USA team in Miami, FL. will be following developments closely and will have regular updates.

Low Sabine Southern Soaking

Low Sabine is currently developing rather slowly across the continent and will bring some heavy rain in from the South-east during Friday across Southern and Eastern areas. During Friday the remnants of Sabine will be pushed further North across many parts of the UK with some heavy rainfall for a time across all Southern facing upland areas.

Into the weekend and it's Low Theresa which heads in from the Atlantic and is actually one of the most potent areas of low pressure we have seen from the West for some time.

Heavy rain associated with Theresa is of some concern, but also some strong winds wrapped around the system will bring near gale force winds across parts of the South-west.

Into next week and it's all about Theresa. She will stagnate slowly across the UK which at this time of year means a mixture of unstable air as well as daytime land heating.

In short, some unsettled weather for a time on Saturday but then it's sunshine and heavy showers all the way. It is April I guess....
