Summer Forecast - 2010 - July Update

[u]Mid - late July[/u]
[u]
[/u]
The middle part of the month should be unsettled with showers and longer spells of rain, but temperatures will remain around average. However, towards the final third of the month high pressure should dominate once again, with warm or hot sunshine depending on where the high pressure is situated exactly.

[u]August[/u]
[u]
[/u]
The warm weather will quickly break down early on in the month as the Atlantic wakes up. Low pressure will dominate for most of the month, only broken by occasional ridges of high pressure. Overall August will be a disappointing end to the summer after a great June and decent July.

Summer Forecast - 2010

[u]
[u][size=4]Summer 2010 - mixed bag, nice July?[/size][/u]
[u]
[/u]June[/u]
[u]
[/u]
June has started off warm and sunny, but from the 6th onwards it will become increasingly unsettled, and from the 8th onwards it will become much cooler as well. Towards mid-month, it looks as though it will become somewhat drier, but it will remain cool and still rather disappointing. During the final third of the month warmer conditions will return, though they might be accompanied by some unsettled weather, so quite a mixed bag is expected with no prolonged dry spells.

[u]July[/u]
[u]
[/u]
July looks like being the best month of the summer, with a few warm / hot spells. They will be interspersed with some unsettled spells too, but there shouldn't be any prolonged cool, unsettled weather, and overall it will be a warm month. It's far too early to pin down the details, but overall winds should be coming from a southerly direction for most of the time, whilst every now and again they will come from the west when low pressure arrives.

[u]August[/u]
[u]
[/u]
During August I expect the Atlantic to be far more Active than during June and July. The first half of the month might still contain a few warmer days, but for the rest of the month I suspect things will be on the Autumnal side, with very little in the way of late summer warmth at all.


Make the most of any fine weather in July as August could be a disappointment. This forecast will be revised in early July.

Potential Snow: 15Th - 19Th February

There will be bits and pieces of rain around, which may well be sleety at times. This will make it feel particularly cold. Towards midnight some more substantial precipitation will move in from the Northwest, falling as rain or sleet at low levels with sleet or wet snow on high ground.[/size][/color][/font][/left][/center][/left][/left][/color][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size=3]
[/size][/font][/left][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"][size="3"][left][center][left][font="Georgia"][u]Tuesday[/u][/font][/left][/center][/left][center][left][font="Georgia"]The band of rain will have cleared overnight, but it will still be dull and cold. There is the possibility of some sleet or wet snow from little troughs moving around as pressure will be low, but these features are impossible to forecast at this range.[/font][/left][left][font="Georgia"] [/font][/left][/center][/size][/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"][u]Wednesday[/u][/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"]Wednesday may be slightly drier than Tuesday, but there could still be some wintry flurries around. Overall though it will be cold, dull and damp, though the dampness will be in the form of scattered wintry flurries. It is worth noting that there is a small risk of heavier snow moving down from Eastern Scotland, but this is an outside chance at the moment.[/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"] [/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"][u]Thursday[/u][/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"]At this stage, Thursday looks like being the driest day of the week. Overall it will be cloudy and cold, but there could be one or two brighter spells. There could also be a wintry flurry or two again. The greatest risk of a flurry will be in the morning. Towards midnight some heavier precipitation could gather towards the south of the region.[/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"] [/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"][u]Friday[/u][/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"]Confidence is pretty low for Friday, but it currently looks like many parts of the region could be at risk from substantial snowfall. The high ground in particular could see some very heavy snowfall, but near the coast it could be sleety. Towards the evening everywhere could be at risk of snowfall.[/size][/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"] [/font][/left][/center][center][left][font="Georgia"][size="3"]Confidence is quite low for this forecast as the upcoming situation is very unpredictable, but it could well be an interesting week to say the least.[/size][/font][/left][/center]

February Forecast

[b][u]PLEASE NOTE: NORTH WEATHER LONG RANGE FORECASTS ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIMENTAL[/u][/b]

The first week of February will be cold across the North of England for the most part. There will be some prolonged spells of rain or snow at times, though any lying snow won't lie for long. Towards the end of the week it will probably become milder, but just how mild is uncertain.

The second week of February is likely to be cool and wet for the most part, until easterly winds start to try to nudge in during the second half of the week. Whether they succeed or not is uncertain, so it could be either cool and wet or cold and snowy.

The third week is likely to see northerly winds, but rather than a northerly blast as seen at the end of January, some fairly cold and nondescript weather is likely. Confidence is very low.

The final week of the month is likely to remain on the cool side, with further boring conditions. High pressure will be close by, but there is always a good chance of dull, cold weather in winter, though of course it will be nearly Spring by this stage.
