Autumn

Recommended Posts

I don't know about anyone else but I'm afraid I get fed up with some weather websites going on about autumn coming (or is here already!) Most people are in the middle or starting their SUMMER holidays................wait at least until September at the earliest no matter what the weather.

    UK Outlook for Monday 8 Sep 2008 to Wednesday 17 Sep 2008:

    After a chilly start to the week many areas will have a dry and bright day on Monday with sunny spells, although eastern areas will also have a few showers. Tuesday and Wednesday both look set to be mainly dry with sunny spells but later in the week conditions are likely to become more unsettled and windy from the west, with outbreaks of locally heavy rain spreading to many areas. There is also a risk of thunderstorms. The temperature during the week will be mainly warmer than average for the time of year. Then during the weekend and into the following week there is no particularly strong signal for any notable weather events to occur. Some rain or showers are likely, along with some dry and bright spells.

    With that start to Autumn forecast I see no reason to complain, more Thunderstorm activity than the whole summer had to offer.

    As if we didn't already know, the press are on to this weekends weather and this time it's not the Daily Express!

    The Met Office has also issued a "severe and extreme" weather warning for the South West and North East of England, with almost a month's worth of rain expected in a matter of hours today (FRI). Two flood warnings have been issued by the Environment Agency for the Peterston-super-Ely and St Fagans areas of Cardiff, as the first Atlantic storm of the autumn takes hold. A further 12 areas across Devon, Cornwall, Wales, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire and Gloucestershire are advised to stay on the alert, with flooding of low-lying land and roads deemed likely.

    Only northern Scotland will escape the wet weather, and could even experience some sunshine.

    Forecasters have warned that the rain will carry on into the weekend and beyond, with the Midlands bearing the brunt of the deluge on Saturday. A Met Office spokesman said: "Almost every part of Britain will experience heavy rainfall this weekend, it is a pretty miserable outlook. An area of low pressure will move into the South West over Thursday night and Friday morning, and will push a band of rain across the country to the North East.

    "Saturday will bring more heavy showers and although things will improve in the South West on Sunday, there will still be wet weather for the eastern side of the country. "Looking into the week, there isn't much respite. We expect it will be generally unsettled, with further outbreaks of heavy rain across the country."

    The intense weather front crossing the country on Friday is predicted to see more than 50mm (1.96 inches) of rain fall in some areas and will be followed by thunder and lightning. The torrential downpour will be accompanied by wind speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. Ken Hunt, a spokesman for the Environment Agency, warned people in areas most at risk to regularly check local broadcasts.

    "The ground is already wet from the recent bad weather so we are expecting to issue further flood warnings and watches as this weather system arrives," he said. "Although most of it will be surface flooding as drains overflow, some rivers could also breach their banks."
