The easterly that produced southwesterly weather- raining for 6 hours, damp, misty and mild. Ridiculous!
Unfortunately this is the "norm" for the non-winter easterlies in between March and November. warm easterlies are a dime a dozen in spring and summer and most of the autumn too. classic cold easterlies like March 2013 are as rare as hens teeth in these seasons.
Thundery wintry showers
At this time of year easterlies are often like a colder version of tropical maritime south-westerlies. The issue is that the moisture over the sea produces stratiform cloud that is trapped at low levels due to the stable airmass.
and of course in summer easterlies can rival Maritime Tropical southwesterlies and Continental Tropical southerlies for heat and thunderstorms.
