Chilly Start Then Cloudier

  • Chilly Start Then Cloudier

    Click Here to submit your own images

Bit of a change in the weather today as Low Xander heads South tomorrow bringing rain for much of Scotland and Northern England with an ever freshening Westerly breeze across many parts of the British Isles.

More in the way of cloud today than yesterday across much of Northern England as the frontal system associated with Xander pushes South-east. For Central, Eastern and Southern areas it will once again be a chilly start to the day after a cloudless night. However, cloud will once again bubble up with the risk of further showers across Western and later Central areas.

The main rain band associated with Xander won't make a huge amount of progress during the course of the day. It won't be until later this evening and overnight where the frontal system actually gets its act together and swings South across many areas.

Temperatures nothing special. 17 or 18c which is a tad down on the average across Eastern areas with 15-16c across Southern, Central and Northern parts. Areas across Wales and Northern England under the showers may struggle to see 15c, whilst Scotland really may struggle to get above 10c in the rain. More like Augtober than October eh?

Cool Week Ahead


A rather cool week next week across much of the UK as we draw down north or north-westerly winds thanks to low pressure setting up shop to the east and high pressure establishing itself to our west. If it was December or January we'd be talking about snow, but it's not...so we're not. However you may well see the word "frost" mentioned in some forecasts this week despite it still being summer - that's an indication of how cool the airmass will be.

So some chilly nights and showery days ahead, but the sun is still high in the sky so in the sunny spells it will feel pleasantly warm still, especially towards the south where there will be fewer showers and lighter winds. But is that it for summer we hear you ask? Well no, although the next week or so looks cooler than average, there are indications that conditions will improve for the beginning of September, as allured to in our monthly forecast issued yesterday.

Don't forget, we now issue a forecast for the next month on the 15th of every month here on Metcheck - you can view the forecasts and the results (once they become available) on the page linked below.

Wet and Wendy


Sorry, we're sticking with the headline for a bit longer - Wendy doesn't visit us very often.

Low Wendy is now becoming the main feature of the weather and whilst she isn't actually going to bring too much in the way of persistent rain, there will be some pretty windy weather associated with her, especially on Sunday and Monday to northern parts of Britain.

Wendy will continue to deepen as she passes to the northeast of the UK and this combined with rising pressure over the Atlantic will help to bring some pretty strong winds around the southern and western flank of Wendy with north/north-westerly winds on Sunday becoming strong across many regions, but especially in the north where gales are likely around the coasts. Gusts of wind may reach 40-50mph at times, even over inland areas, and some coastal spots may see slightly higher gusts. The strongest gusts are likely to occur around heavy showers that are expected to break out so there could be some pretty squally conditions in places at times.

If this was autumn or winter then we wouldn't pay too much attention to it, but we are still in summer and it's peak holiday time so it's well worth watching out for these blustery winds on Sunday and Monday as they may pose a few problems, especially to any outdoor events taking place. At the present time the forecast team don't consider the conditions to be severe enough to warrant a Weather Watch, but they are monitoring the situation closely and this may change so keep checking the site for the latest information.
