Cooler And Cloudier

Cooler And Cloudier

High pressure continues to dominate the weather across much of the UK today but there will be some subtle changes with many areas seeing a cooler and cloudier day thanks to east/north-easterly winds having brought a lot of cloud in from off the North Sea overnight. However as we go into the new week the signs are that sunnier and somewhat warmer conditions will develop more widely with pressure set to remain high for several days yet.

It's a generally cloudy start to the day across many parts of the UK and there are even a few showers across central and eastern districts being blown in off the North Sea on a chilly breeze. On the whole it will be a much cloudier day across the country with the best of any sunshine towards some southern and western regions with some shelter from the east/northeast winds which will be quite brisk at times towards the south and southeast. Many places will stay dry, but the odd shower could pop up just about anywhere today although eastern regions will be at greatest risk . With all the cloud it will be a cooler day for many parts with temperatures reaching maximums of 10°C to 13°C, perhaps a degree or two higher in any longer sunny spells.

Tonight sees the cloud persisting in many regions, continuing to bring the odd spot of light rain or drizzle in places, but later in the night somewhat clearer skies may move into some north-eastern and southern regions meaning it will turn quite chilly. Looking ahead to Monday and whilst there will continue to be variable and often large amounts of cloud continuing to drift around, we are hopeful that more in the way of bright or sunny spells will develop as we go through the day.

Will Singularities Win Again?


follow us on  



Been a few months now of having the new GFS weather model to play with and many meteorologists around the world are still getting to grips with it. The change is a bit like moving house... but just to across the street. It's almost the same, but it's not the same. It feels like you want to trust it but then you aren't quite so sure.... does that make sense?

Anyway, one of the strengths of the new model is picking up sometimes on weather pattern changes. Sometimes (as we've seen before), the GFS holds onto an idea religiously and simply won't budge in it's way of thinking until the very last minute, but other times it does actually pick out an event or trend missed by many of the other global models and gets it on the nose.

We have a similar situation coming up the week after next (commencing 20th). The GFS has been standing its ground on a much colder period of weather with snow across the North. We've been here before if you remember and eventually it flattens out the ridge and whilst it turns colder, it is a far cry from what the GFS actually predicted originally. But it's a new model and as such these things take a while to iron out.

What's interesting is that the end of April is usually a cool period based on weather singularities with Northerly and Easterly winds becoming a frequent visitor. So, perhaps the GFS is just predicting what we knew would happen anyway? Check out the singularities below to see what we mean.

If It Fits... I Sits...

Couldn't find a picture to cover this so thought a picture of ice cream might look nice regardless....

Next week looks pretty much to be dominated by a large area of high pressure around the UK. Hurrah! We hear you cry! High pressure much mean blue skies and warm temperatures and ice cream (Ed. Nicely done!). However, high pressure at this time of year is a perilous beast due to cold seas and land masses still not taking advantage of the longer sunlight hours.

The warmer weather over the past few days were caused by a transitory high which crosses us then dragged in warmer air from the South. Then it was replaced with another high which was stationed to the Northwest introducing cooler and fresher air. Later this week and over the weekend we find the high pressure slipping and sliding around the British isles but all the time the centre of the high remains to the North of us which means cooler air and frequent cloud pouring in from the Northeast and North.

So, high pressure doesn't always mean blue skies and warm temperatures, especially during April as this is a month which meteorologists know as the "Battle of the Airmasses". Saying that, if you stay out of the wind, perhaps in a conservatory and it's sunny, then ice cream will be lovely (Ed. Class... class!)
