Because weather forecasting is not climate forecasting. It's that simple.

 

The green taxes conspiracy theory lends nobodies argument any credence.

 

 

 

Oh the irony!

Nothing ironic about that??

Using caps lock when typing online is considered shouting, sometimes referred to as an "ALL CAPS RAGE!". 

Asking somebody not to get angry while engaged in what appears to be an ALL CAPS RAGE, well, the incongruity of your request is somewhat ironic.

HOTTING UP – AND NOT ONLY ON CENTRE COURT

 

TENNIS lovers are looking forward to Wimblesun next week, with another heatwave on its way. Forecasters say the championship’s quarter and semi-finals, due to be played between Tuesday and Friday, should be scorchers both on and off the court. Met Office experts say the south-east will enjoy the best of the weather, with the north-west improving towards the end of the week. Tomorrow should see temperatures up to a toasty 25C in London and Essex, while Manchester and Newcastle will hover around 18C. Monday and Tuesday will be slightly cooler, before temperatures rise again on Wednesday to a max of around 21C. But experts believe we could still see drizzle at times during the week. Met office spokesperson Lindsay Mears said: “We will probably be up to about the mid-20s. It should hopefully be good news for tennis fans

The latest WSI forecast has been released

 

WSI: No Change to General Pattern Expected Remainder of Summer

 

Cool South/West, Warm North/East Pattern Persists

 

Andover, Mass. (26 June 2013)

 

Weather Services International (WSI) expects temperatures for the upcoming period (July-September) to average lower than normal across southern UK and most of western/central mainland Europe, with higher-than-normal temperatures across the Nordic regions, eastern Europe and especially western Russia. “Even though we have not yet seen the characteristic North Atlantic atmospheric blocking pattern (negative phase of the North Atlantic Oscillation) that has been observed in recent summers, the familiar pattern of cool temperatures across western sections and warm temperatures across the East has prevailed once again this June. Further, there is no indication that this pattern will change significantly during the remainder of the summer as very cool local ocean temperatures act to temper any attempts at a warmer pattern across western sections. As we head towards autumn, we look towards the potential development of a weak El Nino event that would help to favor a cool start to the heating season by October.â€

 

In July, WSI forecasts:

Nordic Region* – Cooler than normal southern Sweden/Norway, warmer than normal elsewhere
UK* – Cooler than normal
Northern Mainland* – Cooler than normal, except far eastern sections
Southern Mainland* – Cooler than normal, except far eastern sections

 

In August, WSI forecasts:

Nordic Region – Warmer than normal
UK – Cooler than normal south, warmer than normal north
Northern Mainland – Warmer than normal, except France
Southern Mainland – Cooler than normal

 

In September, WSI forecasts:

Nordic Region – Warmer than normal
UK – Cooler than normal south, warmer than normal north
Northern Mainland – Cooler than normal
Southern Mainland – Cooler than normal

AMERICAN HEATWAVE KILLS SEVEN

 

A blistering, killer ­heatwave in America’s west could break records this weekend. Forecasters fear temperatures in California’s Death Valley could beat the world record 56.7C (134F) set there in July 1913. The heat has already claimed the lives of seven Mexicans attempting to ­illegally cross the desert border into Arizona. Immigration ­officials in Tucson have also dealt with 170 cases of severe ­dehydration. Wildfires across Colorado and California forced ­evacuations and tourists have been warned not to venture outside in the sun.

Make the most of it! Today could be the hottest day of 2013 - but looming clouds means cooler weather from tomorrow

Summer is finally here with heatwave until late July

 

Over the weekend the barbecues finally came out, the beaches were full and even Glastonbury got some sunshine. The hottest temperature was 27.2C (81F) at Heathrow on Sunday, beating the previous maximum of 26C on 19th June. Down on Worthy Farm it was 18C as revellers at Glastonbury stripped off to enjoy the heat, although it was cloudy further south west. Even the north of the country enjoyed temperatures of around 20C, with Edinburgh enjoying 18C. But the temperature will cool today (Monday) with showers on Tuesday bringing fears summer has made another false start and stopping play at Wimbledon.  The temperature will remain around a disappointing 20C in the south and 17C in the north at the start of the week.

 

The cooler weather with frequent showers and a breeze is being caused by weather fronts coming across from the Atlantic. However, do not lose heart, summer will return. From Thursday high pressure will start building over the UK, meaning warmer more settled conditions and temperatures beyond 26C (79F). The heatwave should last a few days over the weekend and into mid July. The Met Office long term forecast said summer will truly begin from the week after next, as the block of high pressure stays in place for a while. “There are signals that the dry and settled weather from the first half of the month should continue across most parts of the UK during at least the first half of this period. This means rainfall should be below average, with above-average temperatures and above-average sunshine amounts,†said a spokesman.

Britons flock to the beaches as the summer finally arrives

 

BRITAIN is set to roast in a month of scorching summer sunshine, with temperatures set to hit 86F (30C) this week.  Forecasters said July would be the “best month of the summer†as hot air floods in from Europe. The country can look forward to a run of warm, dry weather with weeks of blues skies on the way. The cheery outlook comes after Britain basked in the hottest day of the year so far yesterday, with temperatures reaching 81F at Heathrow in London.

Resorts such as Bournemouth were packed with day trippers. The hottest and driest weather is likely to be in the South and the North will be cooler with a greater chance of rain. But millions will enjoy a vast improvement on the grey and rainy picture which has dominated the summer so far. Jonathan Powell, forecaster for Vantage Weather Services, said: “July is on course to be the best month of the summer, looking mainly dry with a series of heat spikes taking temperatures into the high 20Cs (80F). “There is no real sign of much rain for the whole month, and bursts of Continental air will make it feel very warm.â€

BRITS STRIP OFF FOR HOTTEST DAY SO FAR

 

BRITAIN finally got to bathe in sunshine yesterday on the hottest day of the year so far. Temperatures soared to a sweltering 27C in some parts of the country and thousands hit the beaches. And some areas were expected to reach 30C this week, making the UK hotter than Mallorca and Hawaii. Forecasters said the sweltering heat was set to stay. A spokesman for British Weather Services said: “There are positive signs of a proper summer from the middle of this week.†It means Britain should avoid a repeat of last year’s washout. Sunseekers flocked to the coast yesterday. In Bournemouth, every sunlounger and deckchair was snapped up, while there were 15-minute queues for ice-creams and soft drinks at beachfront booths. Crowds of 60,000 hit the Dorset resort, struggling to find room on its seven miles of golden sands.

 

Glastonbury enjoyed its hottest festival since 2004, reaching 24C. Celebs including Chris Evans, 47, and wife Natasha Shishmanian, 33, Amanda Holden, 42, Geri Halliwell, 40, and Carol Vorderman, 52, sunned themselves at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone, Northants. Wimbledon is set for sunshine in time for the semi-finals, while the north and west will see the mercury soar by the weekend. Met Office spokesman Tony Gray said: “After cooler temperatures at the start of the week the south’s mainly fine and dry conditions are expected to head further north.†June was the coldest since 1991, at an average of 13.4C, but rainfall was down 50%

Hot July Across UK As Summer Finally Arrives

 

Summer could finally be around the corner with weather forecasters predicting that the UK could enjoy warm weather for the rest of July. With parts of Britain on Sunday experiencing the hottest day of the year so far - 27.2 Celsius being recorded at London Heathrow - memories of one of the coldest springs on record could soon be banished. Forecasters have said that a build-up of high pressure will lead to fine weather across the UK resulting in below-average rainfall and above-average temperatures. A few outbreaks of rain are expected between now and Friday but then the warmer weather is expected to return and stay right through into August. Sky News Weather Producer Joanna Robinson said: "There will be showers around today, but more prolonged rain will move in from the west tonight, which will extend slowly eastwards tomorrow. 

 

"The wind will pick up as well. Wednesday and Thursday will see showers or longer spells of rain, but by Friday high pressure will build from the south-west settling things down.  "This coming weekend looks mainly fine and dry, with temperatures climbing across all areas, not just south-east England. England, Wales and the Republic of Ireland will see temperatures into the mid-20s, while Scotland and Northern Ireland will see the low-20s." "It looks like high pressure will keep things settled and very warm for a good part of July too," she added. "I'm sure there will be showers around at times and some coastal areas may be cooler, but overall the next few weeks currently look dry and very warm, with plenty of sunshine." This follows a particularly cold start to the year, with March being the coldest on record since 1962. March was colder than the preceding winter months of December, January and February, which had not happened for almost 40 years. June looks like it was fairly average in terms of temperature, with below-average rainfall for England, Wales and Scotland.

Warmer-than-average July ahead, predicts Met Office

 

The UK could experience above-average temperatures and hours of sunshine in July, weather forecasters have said. Parts of the country saw their hottest day of the year so far on Sunday, with the 27.2C recorded at Heathrow airport in West London a UK high for 2013. The Met Office is predicting a build-up of high pressure will result in below-average rainfall this month. It comes after spring was the coldest since 1962 and summer last year the second-wettest on record. After the weekend highs, there is expected to be a slightly fresher feel for the first half of this week, and outbreaks of rain are expected in areas from the Midlands northwards. But the BBC Weather Centre said the warmer conditions should return by the weekend and continue into next week, with temperatures in the mid- to high-20s. The Met Office added that there was an indication that the high pressure would last into the second half of the month.

 

'Increasingly warm'

 

A Met Office spokesman said July "rainfall should be below average, with above-average temperatures and above-average sunshine amounts". "There is reasonable confidence that high pressure will build, giving fine and dry weather across most parts of the UK from Friday onwards, with a mixture of variable cloud and sunshine," he said. "There will be lighter winds elsewhere with temperatures around or just above normal at first, but a good chance of increasingly warm temperatures during the course of the following week, especially inland, becoming locally very warm in sunny conditions. "These drier and warmer conditions should continue into the following weekend and there are signals that the dry and settled weather from the first half of the month should continue across most parts of the UK during at least the first half of this period." The predicted summery conditions come after leading UK scientists and meteorologists met last month to discuss the UK's "unusual" weather patterns over the last three years. They examined the factors that caused the chilly winter of 2010-11, the wet summer of 2012, and this year's cold spring. Met Office data shows July's mean daily maximum temperature in the UK over the last 30 years was nearly 20C, with more than 170 hours of sunshine.

Rumours of a UK heatwave...

Jet stream shift to bring summer weather

 

It’s usually true to say that confidence in a weather forecast decreases the further out you look.

 

However, we have a situation at the moment where we are actually more confident in the detail for this weekend and beyond rather than over the next few days.

 

This is because we are seeing some very strong signals for high pressure to dominate the weather from around Friday and then persist for several days afterwards.

Weather Online's July forecast

 

Valid from 01/07 to 31/07 2013
Fair July

Issued: Monday 1st July 2013
Duty forecaster: Simon Keeling & Captain Bob

Probably breaking late in July but much of the month fair

Changeable weather conditions are expected through the forecast period, but the good news is there will neither be a washout, nor do we expect a prolonged heatwave. There will be periods when the weather is more disturbed, notably in the coming week, and again mid-July. sunshine. Periods of fine weather look likely at the end of June and into the early part of July, and then again at the very end of the forecast, probably after 14th. Confidence is reasonably high as forecast models have been consistent with these predictions.

*......6/7/13*

A mixed start to the week with fronts passing eastwards bringing some cloud and outbreaks of rain. Most of the rain will be in more western areas, although the east should stay largely dry. Breezy at times and feeling cool in that breeze. Very little rain through more southern and eastern areas. By the end of the week high pressure will be building and this is going to be bringing a dry, fine and warm day on Friday and Saturday. There is the risk of some low cloud affecting western Scotland and western Ireland, and perhaps an odd patch on the west coasts of Wales and southwest England. For most it should be fine and sunny.

*7/7/13 to 13/7/13*

Pressure is expected to be staying relatively high during this week. This is going to be bringing lots of dry weather to much of England and Wales with good spells of sunshine. There is the threat of some cloud in East Anglia and the southeast at times, brought about by the NE wind here. For western and northern Scotland as well as Northern Ireland cloud may be increased too with the threat of some outbreaks of rain here, especially later in the week. Warm or very warm for most but cooler in the north and west of Scotland.

*14/7/13......20/7/13*

Indications are that high pressure continues to dominate the weather this week. Conditions will be largely dry with some good spells of sunshine. Temperatures will be warm to very warm again.
As the week before there is the chance of some rain for northern and western Scotland, although late on in the week this rain risk transfer south as we see the risk of some thundery rain affecting southern England.

*21/7/13......28/7/13*

There have been growing indications from the models that this week could see a breakdown. Confidence is low on when this occurs and it is likely to be rather stop-start. But, low pressure may come to control the weather from around 24th/25th July onwards bringing periods of rain and stronger winds, together with cooler conditions.

*29/7/13......3/8/13*

Low confidence in the forecast for this week, but it could be that after a brief breakdown for a few days, high pressure my build back again. If this happens the end of July and early August could prove to be fine with good spells of sunshine and warm weather returning. However, do note the low confidence and that this forecast may change.

Probably feeling milder too.

Simon & Capn Bob
