Happy National Weather Persons Day

 Added : Yesterday at 8:44

Happy National Weather Persons Day

Err... yeah.

Today, if you didn't already know is National Weather Persons Day. This is the day you pay homage to all the people around the world who work in meteorology or climatology by buying them free pints of beer and pork scratching in the bar later (Ed. You're milking this...)

Actually, according to Wiki it "recognises individuals in the fields of meteorology, weather forecasting and broadcast meteorology, as well as volunteer storm spotters and observers. It is observed on the birthday of John Jeffries, one of the United States' first weather observers who took daily measurements starting in 1774"... and he is still going.

In truth it's no different to any other day. The weather is still going and we still have to work. But, we would like to take this opportunity to wish all meteorologists and climatologists out there a Happy National Weather Persons Day and also the faithful observers who battle the wind, rain and snow in order to take observations. Also, the scientists involved in furthering this incredible science by improving weather modelling as well as instruments.

So, there you have it. It's days like today that make meteorology dissertations worth it. Remember the endless nights finishing the study on the context of advanced statistical techniques for the fitting of statistical models? If only you'd known that a few years later the only question you had to answer was "Will it snow in Wigan today?"

Ladies and gentleman of the meteorological field.. We salute you.

Wind And Rain Edges Slowly Southeast

 Added : Yesterday at 5:59



It's a mild and cloudy end to the week across much of the UK as a Tropical Maritime air mass lies across the country, this air mass feeding up on south-westerly winds from the Azores. However a cold front will be slowly making its way south-eastwards across the country during the next 24 hours before becoming slow-moving across the south and southeast and bringing a potentially very wet Saturday to southern England.

So this morning starts off on a mild but cloudy note across much of the UK with some patchy rain and drizzle in places. However a band of heavier and more persistent rain currently moving in across Northern Ireland and western Scotland, accompanied by strong to gale force south/south-westerly winds as well, will be pushing slowly south-eastwards today, reaching many parts of Wales and north-western England by this evening. Brighter and colder conditions will then follow into the far west and northwest later on today, whilst to the southeast of the rain band it will remain mostly cloudy and mild with limited brightness. Top temperatures today will be in the range of 9°C to 12°C, but turning colder in the northwest later this afternoon.

That band of rain continues to edge south-eastwards across England and Wales tonight with further rain following into south-western regions by the morning. The best of any drier and clearer spells will be across Scotland and here there will be some frost in places, but it will be milder elsewhere under that cloud. Into the weekend and for southern and western parts Saturday is looking increasingly wet and windy with some heavy rain around but in the north and northeast it should be brighter for much of the day with just a few showers. Sunday is then brighter with some showers for most, but wind and rain returns to the southwest later in the day.

Wild, Cold Then Wild Again

 Added : Monday at 8:58



Plenty going on in the UK weather scene this week as we see Storm Henry rattle in for the start of the week bringing very strong winds across parts of Scotland later this evening. In fact, the shipping forecast is going for Severe Gale 9 to Violent Storm 11 and occasionally Hurricane Force 12 for Rockall and Malin. Not often you see the number 12 mentioned in the shipping forecast.

Into Tuesday and Wednesday and the winds veer round to the Northwest as Henry clears the UK introducing colder air for all parts of the British Isles. A weak ridge of high pressure does a terrible job of trying to settle things down for the Thursday before more wet and very windy weather heads in from the West on Friday with the risk of a very interesting and vigorous secondary low for parts of England and Wales on Saturday.

Looking slightly further ahead and no real sign of anything calm on the horizon as the UK resides under the influence of a powerful upper trough across the Eastern Atlantic. One thing worth keeping an eye on is the tracks of the lows. They are coming in from the Northwest and there remains the threat of colder incursions of air from the East or Northeast for a time towards the middle of the month. A long way off, but something we are keeping an eye on.

So, if you think the Transfer Deadline Day is the most interesting thing today then check out our Facebook page and also have a glance at the GFS model to see more movement than you'll see in the Premier League today.
