Another Dry Week
Added : Sunday at 14:00
Increasing focus on the ongoing dry weather across many parts of the country but especially towards the south and southeast of the UK where rainfall totals so far this year are a long, long way short of what would normally be expected.
The accumulated precipitation charts out to next week offer little hope either:
With even much of Scotland and Northern Ireland joining in on the dry weather.
With temperatures set to rise again too, especially towards the south where the low-mid thirties are possible later in the week, then undoubtedly there will be increasing calls for more widespread hosepipe bans above those already issued.
So when might it rain? At the current time there is no sign of any meaningful rainfall coming across much of the country. There are some hints from the numerical model output of a more changeable set-up developing around mid-month:
However, as you can see from the charts above, there's no real agreement on this and it is 9/10 days away. We will keep a watch on this period for a potential change though.
In the meantime, it's another dry and increasingly warm week on the way for many.
