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.

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.

Becoming warmer, sunnier and dry – Thursday 12th September 2019 – Sunday 15th September 2019

Hi all,

Our weather has been unsettled for a while now and with the remnants of ex-Hurricane Dorian bringing a wet and windy Wednesday morning, then ex-Tropical Storm Gabrielle on the way for Thursday, there will be little change over the 48 hours. BUT, high pressure is on the way and we have a much improved-weekend to look forward to.

Thursday: A bright start soon fading as cloud and patchy rain comes in from the west. A warm sector will bring some tropical air, so feeling humid and warm out there despite the conditions. Max 19°C

Thursday Dew Points

A brief spell of humid air on Thursday as dew points reach 14-15°C

Friday: High pressure arrives so a different day than recently. Plenty of dry weather with sunny spells. Feeling pleasant and less humid. Max 17°C

Weekend: Splendid.

Sunday's TEMP

Feeling much warmer this weekend – temperatures around 19-21°C

Saturday: A misty and chilly start, which will lift then a day of sunny spells and dry weather. Some fair-weather cloud at times and feeling warm in light winds. Max 18°C

Sunday: Some mist patches then sunny spells and warm. Light winds. Max 20°C

Next 10 days Rain

Total Rainfall to the 21st : Rain confined to the NW of the UK; little rain for us

Outlook: High pressure remains. Lots of dry weather. Very little rain over the coming 7 days. Variable cloud with sunny spells. Some mist and fog in the mornings. Temperatures 17-19°C.

Drier for the Weekend – Thursday 5th September 2019 – Sunday 8th September 2019

Hi all,

Autumn is here and Summer has gone as if it never really arrived. I’m looking forward to the cooler days now and before you know it, the talk will be of frost and then snow. The Jet Stream is pretty much in control over the next day or so with some cooler air filtering down from the northwest at times; but improvements are there for the weekend.

Thursday: Sunny spells and windy with some showers developing late-morning and into the afternoon. A much better day than Wednesday. Max 15°C

Friday: Rain to start the day. This will clear into the afternoon and it will turn brighter with sunshine and showers. Breezy. Max 16°C

Weekend: Fresh with some sunshine and drier.

Saturday: Sunny spells and staying dry for most. Chance of a shower near the hills. Less windy. Cool overnight with temperatures well down into single-figures. Max 16°C

Sunday: Mostly dry with some bright spells. Cloud thicker towards evening with a chance of some drizzle on the hills. Max 16°C

Outlook: High pressure to the south-west might nudge in towards mid-month increasing the sunshine and temperatures.

Summer’s Swansong – Thursday 22nd August 2019 – Bank Holiday Monday 26th August 2019

Hi all,

Welcome news. Summer is returning, after what has been a poor August to say the least. Warmer, drier and sunnier weather on the way. One last Summer BBQ is in order.

Thursday: Weather fronts still close by so a cloudy day with any patchy rain during the morning easing away. Max 20°C

Friday: Dry with a cloudy start. Sunny or bright spells will develop during the day. Starting to feel warmer. Max 22°C

Long Weekend: Summery

Saturday:  Sunny spells, light winds and feeling very warm. There could be quite a few cloudy spells at times, so areas seeing more sunshine than others, will see the highest temperatures.  Max 23-25°C

Warm Sunday

Sunday Afternoon Temps – Summer is back – for a few days at least

Sunday: A perfect summer’s day on the cards. Dry, plenty of sunny spells and hot. Max 24-26°C

Bank Holiday Monday: Perhaps a little cooler but still a great day for a Bank Holiday. Sunny spells and staying dry. Max 23-24°C

Outlook: Remaining very warm with temperatures close to the mid-20s. A showery breakdown is expected midweek, with a few thunderstorms possible. Eventually much cooler with temperatures returning to 19-20°C by the following weekend.

Remaining Unsettled then Improvements – Thursday 15th August 2019 – Sunday 18th August 2019

Hi all,

August, a month never to be trusted. We’ve had an unsettled week of weather with some conditions more like early Autumn. There is more wind and rain to come, but there could be light at the end of the tunnel just in time for the Bank Holiday Weekend.

Thursday: Showers on a northwesterly wind to start the day but these will eventually fade by the afternoon. So, a drier and better end to the day with sunny spells. Max 19°C

Friday

Another Autumnal-like low arrives on Friday

Friday: An unsettled day, as a band of rain, some heavy, comes in from the west. It will also turn breezy. The rain will turn showery later in the day but some of these will be heavy and perhaps prolonged. Max 18°C

Weekend: Breezy with showers

Saturday: Low pressure anchored to the northwest of the UK, so it will be windy with some showers. Some uncertainty on how many showers at this stage, but hopefully not too many and some sunny spells in between. Max 19°C

Sunday: A dry start for most with bright or sunny spells.  It will become increasingly windy as the day progresses, gusts to 35mph and bands of showers will arrive leading to a wet afternoon and evening.  Max 18°C

Outlook: A slightly unsettled start but from midweek the weather looks set to improve as the Jet Stream buckles and this gives high pressure a chance to build. As we head towards Bank Holiday it’s currently looking good with settled conditions, sunny spells and temperatures recovering to the early 20s. As always, this time-frame is in the unreliable window so look out for updates on Twitter.
