Low Zachery will slowly be moving away to the east during the next 24 hours or so allowing pressure to rise for a time before weather fronts associated with the remnants of ex-Hurricane Cristobal brush the UK later on Sunday and into Monday. It's not all bad news though as we are expecting the fronts to be fairly weak and high pressure is still expected to take control during the course of next week bringing plenty of fine and warm weather for many regions.

For Saturday morning and showers will continue to affect many northern and western regions, some of these on the heavy side, but towards central, southern and eastern parts there will be plenty of dry weather around with some sunny spells. Once again it will be another day of sunshine and showers, the heaviest and most frequent of the showers always towards the north with many parts of the south and later the west seeing only isolated showers and more in the way of sunny spells as pressure rises from the west. Temperatures for many parts will again be close to normal and it will feel warm in any sunny spells towards the south and east.

Saturday night will become mostly fine and dry in most places although the odd shower may continue around windward coasts, especially in the northeast. Temperatures will drop back a touch, down into single figures in the north, but not as chilly as they were earlier in the week. Looking ahead to Sunday and it should be a mostly fine and dry day for most places with some warm sunshine, but thickening cloud and freshening winds will bring a little rain to the far northwest later in the day.

Turning More Settl.... Oh Hang On.

Well, the second half of August has certainly been a bit of a wake up call with regards to how quickly it feels Summer can end eh?

For the rest of this week we will find Low Yvonne slowly dragging herself away to the East whilst another area of low pressure (Low Zachary) will push in from the West bringing rain and some stronger winds across Western areas later on Wednesday.

Once again Zachary looks like hanging around to the East of the UK and dragging in cooler air from the North. This seems a pretty relentless pattern over the last month or so and could well be one to watch as we head into Autumn.

Hurricane Cristobal is out in the Atlantic too and is causing havoc with the weather models. It is unlikely Cristobal will have any direct affect on the UK weather (unlike ex-Bertha). But the track and intensity he takes will dictate whether high pressure returns for the start of September. Even though we are expecting a return to more settled conditions next week, think warmish days with chilly nights and overnight mist and fog... not scorchio by any means.

Signs Of Improvement

Nope, we don't mean with the Metcheck forecasters sense of humour sadly, but tentative signs now of high pressure building across the UK during the first week of September. Strangely enough, the main driving factor of high pressure building is in fact remnants of Hurricane Cristobal which races across the Atlantic but heads North towards Iceland.

You see, this is natural physics in action. Low pressure will force air to rise which is great.. but that air has to go somewhere. Imagine when you were younger and you would dig holes (perhaps you're still doing this?) in the ground and then throwing the soil out. Eventually it will form a mound of dirt, on one side if it is windy enough. In the atmospheres case this is air. The air being sucked up by Hurricane Cristobal is deflected to the East of it and in turn builds an area of high pressure with all that descending air. The one difference between a transient high (which Cristobal creates) and something like the Azores high (semi-permanent) is that transient highs tend to get moved along rather quickly by any incoming area of low pressure from the West.

So, that's next weeks weather in a nutshell, high pressure building in from the West but expect a few complications as transient high pressure areas are reliant on the exact track and intensity of what is creating them.
