Net-Weather Close-up Forecast

Recommended Posts

Thursday until Sunday 11/12/05

A tricky little low pressure to get out of the way overnight Wednesday into early Thursday. Much of England and Wales having rain at times. Over the higher levels of the Peak District then a covering of snow is just possible. Eastern and central areas further north may get a mostly dry night. However with a rather slackish north to north west flow behind this low then some showers are expected, especially for western areas. Again over the highest ground there may be some sleet or snow. Any clearances could lead to two further problems for the morning, fog and frost. Icy stretches after the cloud starts to clears and some mist or fog patches.
So for the main part of Thursday it will become dry as the rain in the south and the western showers dry up with some intervals of sunshine for all.
Temperatures starting off around 2C to5C and topping out at 6C to 8C for most but double figures in the far south west, around 10C

By Friday high pressure has taken up residence just to our north east. A dry day for eastern and many central districts with some sunshine, although cloudier later. In the west a dry start for some but cloudy with rain soon into most parts, with some moderate outbreaks and patchy hill fog. The wind will also freshen from a southerly point, perhaps fresh to strong in some of these exposed areas later.
After a ground frost in many places at first the afternoon temperatures will only get up to 5-6C in the east but around 6 to 8C in the west. Indeed parts of Northern Ireland and the far south west might touch 12C

The high has slipped into the continent so a more west or west south west flow. A lot of cloud, especially in the west with hill fog. Slight rain or drizzle around as well but chiefly over and west of the main areas of high ground.
In the east and south east temperatures still struggling a bit, even with some sunshine (inversion!) around 7 or 8C in the afternoon. No such problems elsewhere with values of 10C to 13C fairly generally. In the east and south east there could be some fog around first thing.

And looking ahead
Still largely dominated by high pressure, still some rain for a time in the far north, and slowly cooling down over most parts.

An update on Monday evening, unless events require an earlier one.
