Turning sunnier & colder with frost and fog – Thursday 28th November 2019 – Sunday 1st December 2019

Hi all,

It’s been a dull and dank few days, and although mild, it really does feel like winter is closing in, but will we see snow any time soon?

Thursday: Cloud and rain will move south during the day with some heavy bursts for the afternoon. It will dry up during the evening as colder air arrives from the north. Ground-frost overnight. Max 9°C

Friday: A lovely autumnal day with plenty of sunshine. Much colder. Widespread frost overnight. Lows of -6°C possible in rural spots. Max 6°C

Weekend: Cold, frosty and dry with a risk of fog.

Saturday: Frosty and possible foggy start. Sunny spells and dry. The frost will persist all day in places. Cloud encroaching from the southwest later in the day. Cold. Max 5°C

Sunday: Any risk of rain with hill-snow looks set to stay away to the south so a bright day and dry albeit cold again. Frost likely overnight. Max 6°C

high P

High pressure rules this weekend and early next week – Frost, fog and sunshine

Outlook: High pressure builds and we lock in the cold air, so the first few days of December will be chilly and dry with sunny spells and frosty/foggy nights. Below average temperatures but recovering from midweek as the cold air looks like slipping away.

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.
