April 2014 Forecast



[size=5][b]April 2014 -[/b][/size] [color=rgb(40,40,40)][font=helvetica]Based on long range forecasts and the climate simulator.[/font][/color]


[color=rgb(40,40,40)][font=helvetica]England, Wales and parts of Ireland and Southern Scotland look most likely to see above average rainfall. Northern Ireland and the rest of Scotland is expected to see average rainfall amounts. Overall I think April could be slightly wetter in some parts of the UK than March.[/font][/color]



All of the UK should see close to average temperatures, so far this year the average temperature has always been over 1°C. For April temperatures are still likely to be slightly over but only by about 0.5°C to 0.8°C. Southern Ireland can expect below normal temperatures during some periods of April where the temperature average may be 0.5°C below. Overall for all of the UK and most of Ireland will see average temperatures and at times slightly over average as Southern Ireland may see some colder temperatures.


[b]Pressure Patterns[/b]

High pressure to the North of the UK is likely to be a strong feature during April this will lead to Northern parts of the UK seeing average rainfall amounts and calmer weather. However low pressure is mainly to the South of the UK and in the Atlantic making these area's at higher risk of above average rainfall but temperatures still remain slightly above average.




The image above shows the Southern half of the UK seeing mostly low pressure with above average rainfall and some unsettled weather at times but the temperatures remaining on the average side of things. The Northern half of the UK see's both average temperatures and rainfall thanks to high pressure being in charge it's likely to see calmer weather as well.
