Milder and Windy – Thursday 30th January 2020 – Sunday 2nd February 2020

Hi all,

Not for all of us, but for some of us, snow fell on Tuesday morning. I managed to get up to Dove Stone Reservoir to see my first snowfall of the winter and it’s taken nearly two months to arrive. As this so-called winter has been playing out, the snow was short-lived and most had melted by the time I had walked the 2.8 miles round. The cold spell is over as milder weather returns.

Thursday: Breezy with bright spells and just the chance of a shower or two. Feeling mild for the time of year. Max 10°C

Friday: The Atlantic will influence with a cold front pushing a band of rain through followed by showers. Strong southwesterly winds but temperatures into double-figures, so very mild for the time of year. Max 12°C

Weekend: Saturday looks best.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy to start with a few patches of drizzle. Turning drier with a few breaks allowing some sunshine to come through with a few showers, especially in southern parts. Windy and cooler. Max 10°C

Sunday: Wet with rain spreading in, turning showery later. Remaining breezy and relatively mild. Max 10°C

Outlook: Mild and damp at first with some bright spells and showers. Turning chilly midweek with a chance of a northerly wind developing for a time as high pressure builds. This means from midweek; drier, settled conditions with some bright spells by day and a few patches of fog and frost at night.

Overcast then some rain – Thursday 23rd January 2020 – Sunday 26th January 2020

Hi all,

A very quiet few days of weather has passed this week, with a new pressure record being set at 1049.75 hPa on Monday, thanks to a huge area of high pressure. Eventually a change later this weekend but still no snow to lower levels in the forecast.

Thursday: Cloudy with limited brightness. Low-cloud on higher ground. Mild for the time of year. Calm winds. Max 9°C

Friday: A weak weather front might slip down from the northwest so perhaps some localised drizzle especially on the hills. Max 8°C

Weekend: Some rain on Sunday.

Saturday: More of the same. Dull start with mostly cloudy skies. It is expected to remain dry but with the breeze picking up later it might allow for the cloud to break and we could see some brightness. Light rain overnight. Max 9°C

Sunday: Patchy rain for the morning, clearing southeastwards with a few showers following on. A little cooler but more in the way of sunshine than recently. Breezy. Max 7°C

Outlook: Heavy rain for Monday and windy too (keeping an eye on this). Temperatures generally 7-9°C with more in the way of showery rain to come during the week. Small chance of the showers being wintry on the Pennines/hills, especially on Tuesday, otherwise no significant cold/snowy weather on the horizon.

Lovely Weekend Ahead – Thursday 16th January 2020 – Sunday 19th January 2020

Hi all,

It’s been a mild, windy and quite wet start to January, so we will be thankful of this weekend’s weather. We are now halfway through winter and I’m still waiting for my snow fix. Surely it’s got to come soon?

Thursday: A bright start with a few sunny spells. Winds increasing and cloud thickening into the afternoon as rain arrives from the west. Milder. Max 10°C

Friday:  The odd bright spell but generally it’s a day of showers moving in from the west/northwest. With this airflow comes cooler temperatures once again. Patchy frost and ice overnight. Max 7°C

Weekend: A refreshing change. Sunny, frosty and dry.

Frost makes an appearance this weekend

Saturday: High pressure builds so a dry day with sunny spells. Cool in the northwesterly breeze. Frosty overnight. Max 6°C

Sunday: Another dry day with plenty of sunny spells. Perfect winter’s day. Patchy frost to come overnight. Max 7°C

Outlook: Dry with bright spells and more in the way of cloud for Monday-Wednesday as the high pressure slowly slips away. Cloud-cover should prevent a frost at night. From Thursday winds will increase from the west as the Atlantic returns bringing some rain in time for the end of the working week and the weekend. STILL, no sign of any proper winter-cold or snowfall.

Windy, mostly mild – Thursday 9th January 2020 – Sunday 12th January 2020

Hi all,

December was another wet month but it did end on a slightly drier and milder note. The questions on everyone’s lips are, ‘When will winter start?’ and ‘Where’s our snow?’. The wait continues…..

Thursday: Windy with a band of rain followed by the odd shower. Remaining mostly cloudy. Winds easing later. Max 9°C

Friday: A cold start with some patchy frost likely. A dry day with sunny spells. The breeze picking up later and cloud thickening. Cooler. Max 7°C

Weekend: Topsy-turvy temperatures and windy.

Saturday: A cloudy dry start then rain arriving from the west later. Very mild with strong southwesterly winds which will be gusting to 40mph. Warning in place for the wind. Max 11°C

Sunday: Early morning rain clears to fresher and cooler air from the west or northwest. Sunny spells and showers possible, perhaps wintry on the hills, but generally drying up during the day. Feeling colder. Windy but easing later. Max 7°C

Outlook: Temperatures still above average with some spells of rain and windy conditions from the Atlantic. Winter’s snow and bitter cold remains locked away.

HAPPY NEW YEAR – hope you all have a fantastic 2020! That’s one-third of winter over with and there’s been a lack of significant cold and snow and looking ahead, even frosts will be hard to come by, let alone a good dump of snow! At least the year ended on a dry note with only 3.8mm of rain in the final 7 days.

Thursday: After a cold New Year’s Day it will now be milder with strengthening southwesterly winds. Dry with some bright spells but patchy rain arriving into the evening. Max 11°C

Friday: Back to cooler air again. Sunny spells with a risk of a rogue shower. Most areas dry. Cold in the breeze.  Max 7°C

Weekend: Quiet

Saturday: A lot of cloud about and breezy but dry with some bright spells later. Max 8°C

Sunday: Dry with bright spells. Max 10°C

Outlook: Looking unsettled on Monday/Tuesday with periods of rain and wind. Drier and settled again from midweek as high pressure returns to the south of the UK. No sign of any wintry conditions at this stage.

Monday

A spell of wet and windy weather to start the next working week
