Somewhat Milder

  • Somewhat Milder

    Tap here to send in a sky pic from where you are...

South-easterly winds will be picking up across many areas today as high pressure remains slow-moving to the northeast of the UK and an Atlantic low pressure system moves into Iberia. Originating from northern parts of Africa, these winds will be drawing up somewhat milder air with them but we are expecting temperatures to return back to near normal values over the weekend as we lose that southeast wind but with winds falling light fog will again become more of an issue.

This morning is once again starting off on a mostly overcast note with a lot of mist, low cloud and some patchy light rain or drizzle, the rain and drizzle mainly towards eastern and north-eastern areas of England and Scotland, but almost anywhere could see some. The best of any brightness will come towards western coastal regions and this will continue to be the case throughout today with some southern counties of England and Wales also brightening up as we go through the day. Otherwise on the whole there will continue to be a lot of cloud around in many areas with a continued risk of a little light rain and drizzle at times. The main difference today will be the east/south-easterly wind picking up, becoming fresh to strong and quite gusty towards southern coasts of England and Wales but it will be drawing up relatively mild air originating from north Africa so temperatures will be slightly milder, reaching highs of 10C to 13C although with the wind it won't feel that mild.

It remains rather breezy and mild tonight with a lot of cloud continuing to feed in bringing some patchy light rain and drizzle with it, especially towards north-eastern regions of the UK. However no real frost or fog worries are expected with temperatures holding up in double figures across parts of England and generally not falling much lower than 5C to 8C. As we go into the weekend the rather quiet theme continues with high pressure ridging in bringing plenty of mostly dry weather, but as the winds ease it will feel pretty mild on Saturday before fog patches form overnight which may then linger on into Sunday in places.

Apprentice v Master

Well it had to come didn't it? With two major weather models and one about to supercede the other in January 2015 it was only a matter of time before one throws us a scenario totally different to the other.

Next week we have the GFS v GSM battle across the UK.

The GFS is going for milder weather coming in from the Atlantic. The GSM for a cold Easterly from the continent. Only one can win... who will win the battle to be Lord Sug.... (Ed. Wrong website I think?!)

Our in house meteorologists have taken a look at this in todays forecasters discussion. Click the link below to have a read.

Cold, Foggy and Frosty Tonight

Hmm, not meteorological Winter yet, but our thoughts will start turning that way if we get any more nights like the one that is approaching.

What we would call a "proper" Novembers evening on the way across a large part of the country as winds fall light and we find some pretty dense areas of mist and fog developing widely across parts of England later this evening. Temperatures dropping away quickly too with air and ground temperatures below freezing for a time across the Midlands, East Anglia and Western England allowing for the potential for freezing fog in places.

Later in the evening the cloud will start to spill in from the South as rain and milder air heads in from Iberia. This has two effects. The first being the winds will start to pick up across the South slowly which is enough to lift the fog. The second is higher cloud acts like a radiation blanket from the top (not the ready brek kind of radiation!) which dissipates the fog from above. As this happens we will find the fog developing more widely across parts of the Northern Midlands and East Wales along with the colder air.
