Pennine Rainshadow

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

i just signed up today and i was wondering if any of you could help.

i am in my final year at uni and i am doing my project on rainshadow in the pennines. i was wondering if anyone has any information on days where rainshadow was dominate in this area? i have got data for everyday between 1994-1997 from the MET office for manchester and leeds, and results have come out how expected. Any days with extreme evidence would help as i could look in depth into the synoptic conditions which promote rainshadow. Does anyone know any other areas along the pennines which could have silimar results to manchester and leeds for a good comparison?

Thanks

    You could try the difference between Moor House about 1800 ft up on the Pennines and Durham, about 40 miles to the east; surely one of the most extreme examples of the Pennine rain shadow effect.

    Or how about the difference between Darwin, in Lancs, and York.

    There have been countless times where i've been at work in Halifax (sort of East of the Pennines) where it's been dreary all day with some rain and i go home 15m further SE and it's been sunny all day.

    Never ceases to amaze me the Pennine rain shadow. :wacko:

    Or you can watch the showers die away as they leave the moors and drop down into Sheffield.

    Today would be a good day to look at it. Log into Net Weather extra put in s8 and you can see it in effect.
