Net-Weather Close-up Forecast

Recommended Posts

Staying cold but bright into the weekend.

Out Look Summary
High Pressure over Greenland weakens then drifts north to be replaced by low pressure, but re assert itself into next week. High Pressure over the UK slowly sinks south then perhaps moves eastwards late into next week.

Sunny but cool during the day, perhaps some isolated showers along east coasts. Frosty overnight in inland areas and generally cool, but becoming Milder and cloudier from the north.

Sunny and cool with perhaps some cloud and drizzle over Ireland later in the day. A Chance of some isolated light showers along the east coast especially around East Anglia. Maximum day time temperature will be perhaps 7 or 8 Degrees C on east coasts, and minimum night time temperature around -3 Degrees C. Winds very light and any fog will be isolated.

Sunny and cool with still some light cloud cover over Ireland and western Scotland and perhaps some drizzle. Very slightly warmer overnight especially in the north, but still frosty in many areas. A chance of some hill fog in the north of Scotland but fog is unlikely elsewhere. Maximum day time temperatures 8 or 9 Degrees C on the coasts with a minimum at night of about -2 Degrees C. Winds will generally remain very light.

More cloud especially in the north but still plenty of sunshine for most areas. North Scotland may see some light rain but elsewhere should be dry. Maximum day time temperatures of 7 or 8 Degrees C with perhaps the south west being warmest. Overnight lowest temperature around -1 Degrees C but restricted to southern areas with perhaps 7 Degrees C overnight in parts of Scotland.

Out Look for Next Week
More of the same with sunny cool days and frosty nights, then becoming slowly warmer during the night time so that frost becomes limited to inland areas.
Beyond Tuesday forecasts are uncertain with confidence in the predictions being low, due to the number of different scenarios forecast for the period recently.
Suggestions at the moment are that there might be some heavy fog for inland areas Thursday morning. A band of rain moving through late Thursday with perhaps some suggestions of snow in northern and upland areas on Friday.

Net Weather will monitor the conditions and advise of serious weather conditions by issuing alerts.

Weather Trivia
UK Winter Facts

The winter of 1939 in to 1940 gave us 49 frosts and 14 days where temperatures did not rise above freezing. -23 Degrees C was recorded at Rhayader (Wales), four feet of snow in Sheffield, 10 feet drifts in Bolton. It will probably be most remembered in weather terms for the great snow and ice storms where freezing rain coated everything with a 3cm layer of ice, bringing down power lines and trees.
The winter of 1946 in to 1947 gave us a particularly cold February. Buxton recorded 30 days of Frost during February, -21 Degrees C was recorded at Woburn, 1.35 Meters of snow in Durham, top day time temperature of -5 Degrees C recorded in East Anglia, No sunshine at Kew from 2nd to the 22nd, 17cms of snow on the Isles of Scilly on the 30th, and a minimum of -21C early on the 29th at Writtle (Essex).
The winter of 1951 saw the largest snowflake fall in the UK measuring 5 inches in size at Berkhamsted on the 13 April.
The winter of 1952 in to 1953 saw some of the greatest snow drifts in the UK with 4.5 meter drifts in Skye and large drifting across much of the north of the UK. However it will probably be remembered for the great storm with 111 mph winds recorded at Cranwell Lincolnshire and flooding in many areas especially East Anglia.
The winter of 1962 in to 1963 was probably the coldest winter in living memory. Snow lay for 67 consecutive days, there were 8 feet snow drifts in Kent and 15 feet snow drifts in the south west, January 23 was recorded as having a maximum temperature of -8 Degrees C, 30 feet snow drifts occurred across the midlands and north late December, -16.1C recorded at Northolt London on the 1st of January and -21.1C Corwen (Clwyd) on the 2nd.
The winter of 1981 in to 1982 was probably the last very cold winter where the sea froze from the shore to about 200 meters out in some areas. -26.8C recorded at Grantown-on-Spey, -27.2C (equal British record for the lowest reading) on the morning of the January the 10th, -26.1C at Harper Adams College just outside Newport (Shropshire) an English record, the maximum temperature at Benson (Oxon.) was only -10C on the 13th, 43 hours of continuous snowfall between January 7 and 9 which deposited 18 inches (45cm) and led to huge drifts.
