Rain returning & less cold – Thursday 21st November 2019 – Sunday 24th November 2019

Hi all,

Rain was set to return around midweek but this has been held off by a ridge of high pressure. Although it’s been cold recently, with the coldest night of the autumn so far, it is slowly going to turn slightly milder.

Thursday: The rain will remain away to our southwest, so another dry day with plenty of cloud and a nagging south-easterly breeze making it feel chilly. Max 7°C

Friday: Cloudy with some rain to start, this should clear away northwards around lunchtime leading to a drier and slightly brighter afternoon. A touch milder. Max 9°C

Weekend: Wet Saturday

Saturday: An area of low pressure is going to swing up from the south or southeast and should push a band of rain across the region. There is a little uncertainty on how far northwest this low pressure gets, so this will determine how much rain we see. The day is expected to be cloudy with rain at times, heaviest in the east. It will be slightly milder again. Max 10°C

Sunday: Perhaps some mist or fog to start but it will be frost-free. It will be quite cloudy with some bright spells at times. An Atlantic low is expected to arrive late on Sunday into Monday bringing further rain and milder conditions. Max 10°C

Outlook: Remaining generally unsettled and cloudy with showery rain at times, temperatures around average or slightly above. No sign of any snow on the horizon.

Staying Cold with Mixed Conditions – Thursday 14th November 2019 – Sunday 17th November 2019

Hi all,

It’s going to remain on the colder-than-average side for a few more days before something milder arrives. It’s been a very wet month and we currently stand at 89.4mm. This forecast is tricky to pin down details, all dependant on where areas of low pressure will sit so, as always, look out for updates on Twitter.

For all days in the forecast, if any clear spells appear overnight and towards the morning then some frost and fog is possible.

Thursday: Bright spells with a cold northeasterly wind. Rain won’t be too far away to our southeast but it is not expected to affect us, with the warning from earlier in the week cancelled. Cold. Max 6°C

Friday: Cloudy and cold with showers, which could be wintry above 300M. A fresh breeze. Max 7°C

Weekend: Showery rain at times but some drier spells.

Saturday: It looks like the low pressure to our east will still influence our weather. A cloudy morning with showery rain. The afternoon should tend to become a little drier. A cold northeasterly. Max 7°C

Sunday: Similar day. Showers at times from the north or northeast which could be wintry. Max 7°C

low pressure from the SW

Next week doesn’t look good despite it becoming milder

Outlook: Turning milder as areas of low pressure swing up from the southwest with periods of rain.

Cold with chance of hill-snow – Thursday 7th November 2019 – Sunday 10th November 2019

Hi all,

October was very wet compared to average but also colder. November has also turned chilly with the UK on the northern side of the Jet Stream. Cold enough for snow?

Thursday: Cloudy with rain at times pushing up from the south. Some uncertainty on how far north the rain gets so it is expected to be the wettest in the southern half of the region. Cold. Max 8°C

Friday: A much better day. Cloud and rain clears quickly if not already. Sunny spells and a cold northeasterly breeze. A very frosty night to come with lows of -3°C in some rural parts. Max 9°C

Frosty Sat

Widespread frost expected Friday night into Saturday morning

Weekend: Rain returns, possibly preceded by some hill-snow.

Saturday: Frosty and perhaps a foggy start for some. Bright spells for a time then rain comes in from the west and with the cold air in place, there could be some sleet or wet-snow for a time on the hilltops and the Pennines. Cold once again. Max 6°C

snow on hills radar

Rain arrives on Saturday and bumps into cold air bringing a risk of hill-snow

Sunday: Showery rain clearing to brighter skies with a few rogue showers. Drier towards late-afternoon. Cold northwesterly airflow. Max 8°C

Outlook: Remaining cold with temperatures struggling to double-figures. Some bright spells in between periods of rain. Chance of some gusty easterly winds picking up.

Turning unsettled – Thursday 31st October 2019 – Sunday 3rd November 2019

Hi all,

It’s been another wet month, especially so earlier in the month and after last Friday and Saturday’s deluge, which saw over 2 inches of rain fall in 24 hours. It’s turned colder recently but is there any truth of snow on the way?

Thursday: After the recent dry and cold spell, change is on the way but we squeeze out one more dry day. High pressure is starting to drift away. Bright spells, becoming cloudy later in the day with patchy rain coming in from the south-west overnight. Max 11°C

Friday: Cloudy with showery rain during the day. Some heavier bursts at times. Feeling milder but breezy. Max 13°C

Weekend: Low pressure in charge

Weekend Low Pressure

Low pressure returns and remains over the weekend

Saturday: Cloudy with rain at times. There will be some drier slots too. Still quite mild with the breeze picking up. Max 12°C

Sunday: Sunshine and showers, some heavy with hail. Windy and a little fresher. Max 11°C

Outlook: Remaining unsettled with rain or showers at times. The first couple of weeks in November look to be wetter than average. No sign of any snow but it could well turn colder around the 11th as a north or northeasterly airflow sets in; so watch this space. [Update: Small chance of a cold snap on the 5th – eyes peeled on this one]

A blip in settled weather – Thursday 24th October 2019 – Sunday 27th October 2019

Hi all,

Finally some settled weather. In fact that’s 6 days out of the last 7 without measurable rainfall. That said, some rain is set to return and with it a weather warning.

Thursday: A band of showery rain will move through, weakening all of the time. Bright spells following on, odd shower and a cool night under clear spells. Max 12°C

Friday's Rain

If you’ve outdoor plans Friday night then expect it to be very wet


Friday:
A dry start but cloud soon increasing as an area of low pressure tracks up from the south-west. Rain, heavy at times will arrive into the afternoon and last for the rest of the day with a weather warning in place for a risk of flooding. Parts of the Pennines could see in excess of 75mm. Windy for a time too. Parts of the North Pennines could see a short spell of sleet or wet-snow on the northern edge of the rain-band. Cold. Max 9°C

Friday's wind

Friday’s low pressure brings us rain and strong winds to southern parts of the UK (perhaps a named-storm)


Weekend: Improving all the while.

Saturday: Heavy rain set to clear away during late-morning/early afternoon followed by a cold northwesterly airflow with some bright spells and perhaps a shower. Breezy. Colder. Ground-frost overnight. Max 11°C

Sunday: A frosty start possible in places then a dry day with sunny spells. A cold night follows with a touch of ground-frost. Max 11°C

Outlook: Several days of more settled weather with sunny spells and misty/foggy mornings with a touch of ground-frost. Becoming more unsettled towards the end of the week but this is still uncertain.

Showery – Thursday 17th October 2019 – Sunday 20th October 2019

Hi all,

We’ve only had 2 dry days so far in October and although more rain is on the way it is in the form of showers rather than heavy persistent areas of rain.

LOW

Low pressure is coming and will hang around for a few days

Thursday: Low pressure comes in from the west bringing some showers for late-afternoon and evening. It should be a pleasant morning with sunny spells. Max 14°C

Friday: A cool day with mostly cloudy skies and a few localised hefty showers. Max 13°C

Weekend: Showery then improving

Saturday: Light winds with bright spells and some showers. Some areas staying dry. Catch a shower and it could be thundery and prolonged. Max 13°C

Sunday: Any morning showers fading as the low slips away to the south-east. Bright spells developing and becoming drier. Max 12°C

Outlook: A brief ridge of high pressure means a few drier days with sunny spells. Any lengthy clear spells will lead to a touch of frost overnight. The high is set to slip away midweek/Thursday so it could turn unsettled again before the chance of a short cold spell.

Cooler 26th

Brief cold snap for the final weekend of October?

It never rains but it pours – Thursday 10th October 2019 – Sunday 13th October 2019

Hi all,

The rain continues. We are not even 9 full days in and we are at 56.4mm of rain for October. The monthly average is 119.3mm. On average October is the 2nd wettest month of the year so it’s no surprise we are seeing rain. It’s just too much so soon after a very wet September. More to come? How will it fair for the Manchester Half-Marathon on Sunday?

Thursday: Another low pressure arrives from the Atlantic so after a bright start with a few scattered showers, a band of rain will move from west to east. Drier into the late-afternoon and evening with bright spells, just a few scattered showers. Max 14°C

Friday: A band of rain will become slow-moving. Its exact position is still uncertain. Under the band you can expect persistent rain, warning in place, and it will feeling cool. The latest suggests the area of rain might sit just to our south-east, so some of us escaping with a mostly dry and cloudy day and milder. Max 16°C

Weekend: Wet theme continues

Saturday: Cloudy start with any rain becoming patchy. Bright spells developing but few and far between. Max 14°C 

Sunday: Some uncertainty on the forecast for this day. It seems another ripple of rain will develop along a weather front pushing some heavy bursts north-east. This will be followed by showers. Max 14°C

Outlook: More low pressures = unsettled, wet at times and breezy. No sign of anything settled.

Ex-Hurricane Lorenzo – Thursday 3rd October 2019 – Sunday 6th October 2019

Hi all,

September has been one of the wettest months I have ever recorded with some relentless rain at times (109mm in the last 7 days of the month; the monthly average being 93mm!). The talk now turns to ex-Hurricane Lorenzo, named Storm Lorenzo by the Irish Met Office, and how it will affect the UK. As usual a lot of media talk but this will arrive close to our shores as nothing more than a deep area of low pressure which is not unusual for autumn.

Lorenzo 2

Ex-Hurricane Lorenzo will bring strong winds to parts of Ireland and the SW of England but won’t cause us any issues

Thursday: A chilly start followed by bright spells. These will fade as cloud builds from the southwest. Some rain likely later in the evening/overnight. Turning milder. Max 13°C

Friday: More rain to come during the morning, clearing quickly. Bright spells into the afternoon, especially in the west. Some drizzle returning in the east later. Much milder as we get some humid air from the fast-decaying Lorenzo. Max 15°C

Weekend: Mild, some rain.

Saturday: A mostly cloudy day with a few bright spells. Rain will arrive from the west towards evening. Max 15°C

Sunday: Rain or showers easing as a small ridge of high pressure brings drier and brighter weather for the afternoon. Max 14°C

Outlook: Little change at first with showers then becoming a little more settled with light winds later in the week.

Yet more rain on the way – Thursday 26th September 2019 – Sunday 29th September 2019

Hi all,

Rain, rain and more rain. That’s the theme at the moment and this pattern is set to continue for a little while yet.

Thursday:  Rain to start followed by sunshine and showers. Windy. Max 17°C

Friday: The Jet Stream is still across the UK so unsettled with a spell of rain turning showery later. Cooler. Max 15°C

Weekend: Unsettled and possibly very wet on Sunday.

Saturday: Bright spells and showers, some heavy and breezy. Max 16°C

Sunday: Low pressure arriving from the south-west with heavy rain after a dry start. Turning windy and showery later. Max 16°C

Outlook: Drier with some sunny spells and chilly nights as we start October. This is only expected to last a few days before it turns milder and unsettled again.

Enjoy it while you can – Thursday 19th September 2019 – Sunday 22nd September 2019

Hi all,

We’ve quietly slipped into a decent spell of weather. Not quite an Indian Summer (yet!) although temperatures will rise before the weather breaks.

Thursday: A chilly start with some mist or fog patches then plenty of sunshine and feeling warm. Max 17-18°C

Friday: Little change. Sunny spells or even unbroken sunshine after a cold start. Temperatures creeping up so feeling warmer but it will become windy later. Max 20-21°C

Weekend: Very warm and windy then the breakdown.

Weather breaks on Sunday

Enjoy Saturday as it’s a different story on Sunday

Saturday: Another lovely Autumnal day. Blue skies and sunny spells but the only downside is the wind. As the high pressure starts to drift away to the Continent it will become gusty with 30-35 mph likely, especially over the hills. Great temperatures for the time of year. There will be showers arriving late in the evening or overnight. Max 21-23°C

Sunday: I hope you had your BBQ yesterday. Breezy with frequent showers arriving from the west, some thundery. Feeling cooler especially later in the day. Max 18°C

Wet and Windy next week

Next Week: Unsettled and very Autumnal

Outlook: Unsettled, windy (perhaps stormy in parts of the UK) with rain or showers at times. Temperatures back to normal, mid- to late-teens. There could well be the first named-storm of the Autumn.
