  1. Day 2 Convective Outlook VALID 06:00 UTC Wed 26 Jul 2017 - 05:59 UTC Thu 27 Jul 2017 ISSUED 17:49 UTC Tue 25 Jul 2017 ISSUED BY: Dan ... NORTHERN ISLES ... Upper vortex on Wednesday morning and associated steep mid-level lapse rates may provide the focus for some showery precipitation with perhaps embedded lightning. This risk will generally decrease by late morning as main Atlantic frontal system rapidly approaches from the west. ... SCOTLAND / NORTHERN IRELAND / N + W EIRE ... In the post-frontal environment, the passage of a pronounced shortwave trough during the afternoon and early evening will provide the focus for an increase in coverage of showers and a few thunderstorms as cool air aloft markedly steepens mid-level lapse rates - beginning in W Connaught / W Ulster mid afternoon, then spreading ENE towards SW Scotland during the evening. Strong DLS and notable LLS could allow convection to become well-organised, at least for a time, with potential for strong, gusty winds and perhaps a tornado. Hail with diameter up to 1.5cm will also be possible. Showers will continue overnight, though with lapse rates looking less impressive and so lightning will be more isolated / sporadic - the risk then extending towards W/SW Ireland later in the night. http://www.convectiveweather.co.uk/forecast.php?date=2017-07-26
  2. Top 5 clubs for spending so far this summer 1 - Middlesbrough - £36.5m 2 - Wolves - £19.3m 3 - Sheff Wed - £10m 4 - Leeds - £10m 5 - Hull - £7m
  3. West Brom's first bid for Ben Gibson was just £12million what a joke No wonder the local paper said the two bids they made were regarded as derisory
  4. Early look at winter from the weather outlook Summary At this stage there isn't a clear signal for winter 2017/18. Recent climatology favours milder than average conditions but some of the background signals tentatively suggest a different outcome. Therefore the initial TWO view is that the chance of a colder winter, or at least one bringing the risk of snow at times, is higher than it has been for several years. http://www.theweatheroutlook.com/twoother/twocontent.aspx?type=hpnews&id=3898&title=Winter+2017%2f18+weather
  5. UK Outlook for Wednesday 9 Aug 2017 to Wednesday 23 Aug 2017: Changeable or unsettled conditions are likely at first with periods of rain interspersed with clearer or showery weather. There are some signals for high pressure to build which would allow for more settled conditions and rising temperatures, mostly likely in the south. By the middle of August signals become mixed and confidence is low. However, the preferred solution is for northwestern parts to stay largely changeable, with drier and brighter spells of weather becoming more prevalent in the southeast. That being said, all areas could see showers or longer spells of rain at times. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast
  6. UK Outlook for Sunday 30 Jul 2017 to Tuesday 8 Aug 2017: A generally unsettled spell of weather is expected on Sunday and Monday with a mixture of sunshine and showers for most, and possibly a spell of more prolonged rain in the southeast. Heavy showers and strong winds are most likely in the north west with a risk of hail and thunder, however winds are likely to be lighter elsewhere. The unsettled regime looks set to continue until early August with further frontal systems affecting the UK, interspersed with clearer or perhaps showery weather and some unseasonably windy conditions across many areas. Temperatures should be around normal to cool, with perhaps only the far south east seeing some warmer conditions at times. There are no signals for any significant change from these unsettled conditions during the period. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast
  7. Generally, the same as what happens in winter they tell us it's going to be the coldest winter in x amount of years and it turns out mild summer is just the reverse with temps around or a bit below average

  11. UK Outlook for Saturday 29 Jul 2017 to Monday 7 Aug 2017: A generally unsettled spell of weather is expected over the weekend with a mixture of sunshine and showers for most. Heavy showers and strong winds are most likely in the north west with a risk of hail and thunder, as well as a possibility of gales in exposed areas. The unsettled regime looks set to continue until early August with further frontal systems affecting the UK, interspersed with clearer or perhaps showery weather and some unseasonably windy conditions across many areas. Temperatures should be around normal to cool, with perhaps only the far south east seeing some warmer conditions at times, although there is low confidence on this. There are no signals for any significant change from these changeable conditions during the period. http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/public/weather/forecast

      For what its worth, there are good reasons to think so. Those of you further north deserve something better - its been a pretty good summer down here whatever happens from this time.  This weekend and today have been the coolest and wettest for quite some time so can imagine how frustrating its been to see days at a time of this type of thing :)

      funnily enough we actually had a nice afternoon here today and reached 21C so not bad. We've had a few very nice days here but not to the extent that you've had in the south. Feel like we've been on the edge of something special but haven't quite made it.

  13. BBC monthly outlook Monday 24 July—Sunday 30 July July set to end on a Low As we go into the last week of July, there are some typical British summer weather conditions on the way with drier, warmer days but rain never too far away. After the very showery conditions of this past weekend, the early part of the week does look to be drier and brighter with fewer showers and a lot of dry weather. Still some showers over eastern England on Monday otherwise many places will be dry with sunny spells and warm in the sunshine too. These conditions continuing on Tuesday with temperatures not too far from normal for late July and with light winds, it will feel very pleasant in the sunshine. All change for Wednesday, a trough of low pressure will bring a band of rain eastwards across the country during the day. The rain will be persistent and heavy for a time but moving through relatively quickly. Thursday will see a return to drier and brighter weather, some sunshine and fresh westerly winds. Friday will also see a lot of dry weather with sunny spells but all change again in the west later. As we head towards next weekend, it does look as though another area of low pressure will make its way across the Atlantic towards the British Isles, bringing another spell of wet weather. It will also be windy at times with gales in the north. Monday 31 July—Sunday 6 August New month, same old weather Further areas of low pressure will keep the unsettled theme going into the first week of August. There will be further bands of rain crossing the country with drier and brighter interludes in between. The most prolonged and heaviest rainfall will be across northwestern areas where it will be windy at times too. It will be driest and brightest for longest across more southeastern areas. No heatwave during this period, the air coming in from the Atlantic will keep temperatures close to or even a little below what we would normally expect in early August. Monday 7 August—Sunday 20 August High pressure fights back As we move into the second week of August, there are indications of high pressure beginning to build close to the British Isles. This would suggest longer spells of drier weather with large gaps between the areas of low pressure. Also the areas of low pressure are expected to pass close to northwest Scotland bringing further rain at times here and some rain extending further south at times too. The driest, brightest weather is expected to be over southeast England where temperatures will be on the warm side. So the weather pattern as we go through August is one we would normally expect to see at this time of year. Next week As we head towards the end of the meteorological summer, any hot summer weather on the horizon? http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2635167#outlook
