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.
