Gaston Won't Make It...

Ladies and Gentleman.... Please put your hands together for Hurricane Gaston!

This rather impressive feature has dominated the weather in the Central Atlantic for the past week or so and has given many of the numerical weather models a bit of a headache with regards to how he handled the weak upper Westerlies which were present.

We had a few solutions which ranged from Gaston rattling in across the UK to Gaston being forced Southeast into Spain. It looks now as though there is a general consensus that Gaston will end up near the Azores islands before being engulfed in a semi permanent area of high pressure. The remnants of Gaston are still likely to reach the UK shores at some point later next weekend, but they will be in the form of a band of rain or showers and certainly nothing like what some of the models alluded to last week.

That said, it's now starting to look a little more active in the Atlantic with regards to tropical developments. It's these features which can bring us some of the most impressive early Autumn storms across Western Europe and it's entirely possible we could see more potent remnants of Tropical weather systems before the season is out this year.

Fair Weather Bank Holiday

Added : Yesterday at 6:00

The extended weekend continues today with a Bank Holiday Monday for parts of the British Isles. So obviously that means it's going to rain right? In fact, today is likely to be the best day of the weekend as a ridge of high pressure extends from the Southwest bringing some gorgeous fair weather cumulus and half decent temperatures to many parts of the country.

We start the day with a little bit more in the way of cloud across parts of the East and Southeast with perhaps the odd light shower, but this will die out pretty quickly as the morning progresses and the ridge starts to take effect. Light and patchy rain heading into Western Scotland though later this afternoon and into this evening as a frontal system approaches from the Atlantic.

Throughout the day for England, Wales and Northern Ireland it's a case of brighter weather spreading in from the West with temperatures up to 22 or 23c across parts of Central and Eastern England which is pretty good for the end of August and feeling fresher too. High teens to low twenties for other parts of the UK.

Later this afternoon and into this evening we will see high cloud spilling in from the West. The good news is that high pressure should just about manage to hang on in the South for couple more days before we see more general cloud and patchy rain returning from the Northwest on Wednesday.

That's your lot! Have wonderful day and now go put those shelves up!

Time To Power Up The Jet

Added : Sunday at 10:05

Ahh, the end of August. It's one of those times of the year where the weather can send Blighty all types of weather. The residual heat is still across Europe which means some warm, perhaps hot weather can still be had. Meanwhile at the North Pole the daylight is now starting to come to an end with less than a month of sunlight left which means that temperatures to the North of us are starting to drop.

It's this contrast in airmasses which drives the weather. After all, if the temperature was the same all around the world then there would be no weather and we would have a very boring job!

For the next month or two we will find this contrast continuing to increase. This in turn will intensify the Polar, Sub tropical and Arctic jet streams as the Earth fights furiously to maintain a balance between hot and cold.

The GFS charts this morning show this battle taking place well. If you select the Freezing Level and nudge the images forwards you'll be able to see it in action. Some heat building across Southern and Eastern areas of the UK this week, but the colder air to the North of us is starting to loom and as a result we see the development of some deep areas of low pressure towards the end of the run. Of course, it probably won't turn out exactly as the models suggested, but just an explanation as to why the weather models start developing deep areas of low pressure at this time of year.
