Ladybower Reservoir's low water reveals 'drowned' village

Quote

 

Dry conditions are believed to have caused extremely low water levels at a Derbyshire reservoir, revealing the remains of a flooded settlement.

Derwent made way for the Ladybower Reservoir, which was built between 1935 and 1943.

The rare sight of the "exposed village" has attracted many people to the reservoir, owned by Severn Trent Water in the Peak District.

Earlier in November, one man had to be rescued after he got stuck in the mud while inspecting the usually-submerged ruins.

Snowy Tuesday Likely Followed By ‘Coldest Thanksgiving In More Than 100 Years’

Quote

 

BOSTON (CBS) — Merry Christmas! Oh wait, it’s only November? Seems only fitting that we end this cloudy, wet (some would call it miserable) fall season with a blast of cold that would be called harsh even in the heart of winter. Next up a rainy and SNOWY Tuesday, (the ninth wet Tuesday in the last 11). It’s all about location, location, location today. From rain to several inches of snow in just a 25-to-50 mile drive, buckle up… literally.

Bad news for those high school football games and turkey trots on Thursday morning. We are forecasting temperatures and wind chills just about as cold as you can get in mid-to-late November. Record lows and record low max temperatures are likely to be set this Thanksgiving. Wind chill values Thursday morning will be below zero. This should be the coldest Thanksgiving in more than 100 years and potentially the coldest ever recorded in Boston. Having fun yet?

Yet another non- news story about the weather from the Express to add to the many and the annual rubbish being spouted by James Madden. (nothing changes) 🙂

'Bookmaker Ladbrokes has slashed the odds from 4/1 to 6/4 on this winter turning into the coldest on record.' - they might know about sport but totally clueless about the weather - what ridiculously short odds on that happening!!!...they obviously think Madden is an expert.

No snow in Lapland as rising temperatures take sparkle away from dream holidays

Holidays have been cancelled, families are crestfallen, and projections suggest a further decline in snowfall in coming years.

Quote

 

"Exceptional" weather in Lapland means no snow has fallen on Santa's homeland this year.

Unseasonably mild conditions, which are likely to become more common as climate changes causes global temperatures to rise, has left many families crestfallen by dream holidays that failed to crystallise.

At a time when northern Lapland would normally have 20-30cm of snow on the ground, there are now no more than a couple of centimetres in isolated patches, and the majority of the area has no snow at all.

Cold turkey: New York set for coldest Thanksgiving in century

Central Park in New York City is forecast to endure its coldest Thanksgiving Day temperatures since 1901.

Quote

 

New Yorkers will need to wrap up warm this Thanksgiving as the annual holiday is set to be the coldest its been in more than 100 years.

Temperatures in the city that never sleeps are forecast to plummet below zero on Thursday morning, with Central Park to endure its lowest Thanksgiving Day temperature since 1901 - when it got down to a bitterly cold -7C (19F).

Currently the temperature in New York - which has already seen some significant snowfall in the past week - is hovering just above that record low.

BBC monthly outlook

Summary

A chilly start, but gradually turning milder

Wednesday 21 November—Sunday 25 November

Cloudy and chilly with an easterly airflow

Until Friday, chilly east to south-easterly winds are expected to dominate for most of the country, and will continue to bring in a feed of frequent cloud and patchy rain from the North Sea. There will be some cloud breaks at times too - a widespread air frost will develop in the south on Thursday morning, thanks to clearer skies overnight - but in general, western and southern Britain will be driest with some sunny interludes. A front approaching from the south-west may bring some showers or patchy rain to southern and south-western Britain on Friday night and Saturday. By Sunday, it looks like cloud and patchy rain will linger for the southern and eastern half of the country; some snow flurries are likely over high ground in the north. The driest, sunniest weather looks to be in western Britain this weekend, although even here there is the potential for the odd rogue shower. It will be chilly for all areas, with the coldest weather likely in eastern counties of Scotland and northern England, where a cold east to north-easterly airflow will continue from the North Sea.

Monday 26 November—Sunday 2 December

A chilly easterly at first, but milder later

On Monday, cold east to north-easterly winds will continue across the northern half of the country, continuing to bring a lot of cloud, as well as some showers or patchy rain. Again, western areas are likely to remain driest and brightest. Next Tuesday looks to be drier, as a ridge of high pressure builds across the country, although low cloud may linger in some areas. By Wednesday and Thursday, milder south to southeasterly winds should develop ahead of an active warm front, which will bring rain to most of the country from the south-west, and mountain snow to northern Britain. It then looks likely that we will see more of an Atlantic influence later in the week, with low pressure generally expected to remain close to the west or south-west of the UK. This should continue to bring mild and moisture-laden south to south-westerly airflows, which will favour lots of cloud and frequent bands of rain, particularly for the southern half of the country. Scotland may take longer to warm up during the middle of the week, although it should become milder here too by the weekend.

Monday 3 December—Sunday 16 December

Becoming mild, breezy and wet for many

It still looks like the beginning of December will maintain the rather mild theme expected to develop at the end of this month, with rather mild, breezy and often wet conditions for many areas. A broad west to south-westerly airflow should take charge, bringing frequent outbreaks of rain to southern and central Britain. However, with cold air still lingering over Scandinavia, there could be some chillier interludes from the east or north-east into Scotland, perhaps allowing snow to fall to low levels. By the middle of December, there is unusually high confidence at this range for mild conditions to develop widely across the UK, as a frequent south to south-westerly airflow becomes more likely. With the airmasses being drawn up from the sub-tropics at times, there will be a more widespread risk of heavy rainfall across Scotland and Northern Ireland, and there is a slight risk of some strong wind events across western and northern Britain. Despite the mild conditions, a stiff breeze and rather cloudy weather should take the edge off the temperatures. The main risk by mid-month is that high pressure develops closer to the UK, displacing the low pressure track to the north and bringing drier and cooler conditions for most areas.

Next Update

Could there be hints of some stormier weather developing in the run-up to Christmas?

They are uncertain now which tells me,is this low going to make it to the uk?

I think all the models agree that it'll be very close by at t144 it's just whether it moves east quickly or stalls out west for a few days

BBC monthly outlook

Summary

Unsettled at times, but some calm, frosty spells

 

Saturday 24 November—Sunday 2 December

Becoming mild and unsettled next week

This weekend will see a chilly easterly flow continue for most of the country, bringing a lot of cloud and some patchy rain or occasional showers from the North Sea. More frequent rain may linger across Scotland and northern England, with a little snow likely over the higher mountains too. The most widespread spells of rain and embedded showers will affect southern England and perhaps south Wales, with the odd rumble of thunder possible at times. Next week will start off on a rather chilly, cloudy note, with occasional showers or patchy rain affecting eastern England and Northern Ireland. After a largely clear night, Tuesday morning will be cold with a frost in the countryside, but a strengthening southerly breeze will develop ahead of an advancing warm front from the south-west on Wednesday, which will be a windy, wet day for most with hill snow in the Scottish mountains for a time. The second half of next week will then transition to a mild and unsettled theme, with low pressure generally to the north-west of the UK, and bringing bands of rain and a rather cloudy airmass from the south or south-west. There is a risk of gales at times too, particularly in the north and north-west, although confidence is currently low regarding the timings of any strong winds.

Monday 3 December—Sunday 9 December

High pressure returning

The first week of December will start off on a mild note, with a mild south-westerly airflow and low pressure generally moving north-east to the north of Scotland. The greatest risk of widespread wet and windy conditions will be early in the week, which is when the low pressure will be closest to the UK. It will be mild for all areas, although the rather cloudy and breezy conditions will take the edge off temperatures somewhat. By the second half of the week, there are increasing indications for a build in pressure from the south-west, which would result in drier conditions for all areas, as Atlantic fronts become deflected well to the north. Temperatures may fall closer to average for most of the UK, with chillier north-westerly or even north-easterly airflows becoming more likely. Winds would most likely ease compared to early in the week too, particularly in the south, with the breeziest and wettest weather generally becoming restricted to north and north-western areas. The nights will start to become colder, with a notable increase in overnight frosts, as well as mist and fog. Some models indicate that a stronger high-pressure area could develop to the east of the UK by the end of the week, resulting in chilly easterly airflows reaching the UK once again. However, confidence is low regarding this scenario.

Monday 10 December—Sunday 23 December

Turning milder but more unsettled

Early in the second week of December, there are strong indications for high pressure to intensify close to or over the UK, and so a drier and calmer period of weather is anticipated. Cold and frosty nights should continue, with mist and fog perhaps slow to clear during the day. Occasional fronts could bring some rainfall to Scotland from the south or south-west - any snow will be restricted to only the higher mountains as a result. Later in the week, it looks more likely for low pressure to return close to the UK from the west, with an Atlantic airmass moving in. So, by the end of the week, all areas will become wetter and breezier, with more cloud and a lack of overnight frosts. By the middle of December, there is increasing evidence that Atlantic low-pressure systems will continue to move in from the west, bringing frequent wet and some windy weather to northern Britain, particularly Scotland. It should become drier the further south you go - occasional bands of patchy rain could edge into central Britain, although high pressure moving up from the south-west could bring some quite dry weather to southern areas. It should be milder than normal for all areas.

Next Update

We will see if the unsettled weather is expected to continue later into December.

Climate change: UK summers could be over 5C warmer by 2070

Quote

 

In its first major update on climate change in almost 10 years, the Met Office has warned of significant temperature rises in the decades ahead.

The UK Climate Projections 2018 study is the most up to date assessment of how the UK will change over this century.

It says that under the highest emissions scenario, summer temperatures could be 5.4C hotter by 2070.

The chances of a summer as warm as 2018 are around 50% by 2050.
