  1. Dry and mostky sunny with a low of 10.9 C
  2. Looks not unlike the profile in this part of the world much of last week. One major difference the surface T was bout 6-8 C lower than shown on the one above.
  3. Even warmer than yesterday at 28.7 C, the hottest since 17 July 2017, mostly cloudless and hardly any breeze
  4. Dry and mostly sunny with patchy Cirrus and Contrails, less warm than yesterday with a low of 8.9 C
  5. Sounds much like a comment during the winter
  6. Now my warmest day since 28/08/2017 at 22.6 C
  7. Dry, still a bit of a breeze, mostly sunny and fairly warm with the low of 13.2 C, the warmest since 29 January this year
  8. In terms of the overall upper pattern there seems little expectation of ridging keeping settled weather beyond this coming weekend. By then a generally westerly pattern is showing on the 3 main anaomly charts. A north to south type of split in terms of more or less settled on a very broad scale description. http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/610day/500mb.php http://mp1.met.psu.edu/~fxg1/ECMWF_0z/hgtcomp.html
  9. Dry, cloudy a low of 9.9 C, so pretty mild, not much breeze yet
  10. So by common agreement we have a warm spell arriving. Do we bask in this prediction? Not some of you just arguing will it be 21 C 23 C or 25 C. For gawds sake stop bickering and enjoy the summer like weather for many areas for 2-3 days.
  11. Dry, partly cloudy with a low of 8.4 C
  12. This is my notes on my anomaly file this morning Sunday 15 april http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/products/predictions/610day/500mb.php http://mp1.met.psu.edu/~fxg1/ECMWF_0z/hgtcomp.html Ec-gfs some changes from above (charts copied on Thursday), neither have such a marked ridge indeed ec has none, and does suggest fairly unsettled weather would be likely if it is correct Noaa keeps more ridging thus a settled pattern remains if it is nearer what transpires 2 for one pattern and one for another? Usually noaa is closer to the upper air actual over the period-as ver time will tell. The 8-14 NOAA shows a flattish not overly strong atalntic flow into a trough just west of the UK.
  13. Dry, bright with some sun through thickening upper cloud, less warm than yesterday with a low of 4.9 C
  14. A very interesting read, leaving some questions unanswered.
  15. Well what a day, sunshine and warmth, my warmest since October last year at 16.9 C
