Ingredients for heat

    Chris Fawkes in his televised forecast today says that despite the high pressure building, we won't be seeing the heat of recent weeks.

     

    So aside from the high pressure, what setup is required to bring in heat from the continent at this time of year?

    Firstly the Jet Stream to the north of us, then a nice continental high to the east feeding in SSE winds from a nicely warmed continent. :yahoo:

    High pressure occurring in the wrong place can being below average temperatures at this time of year. If it sinks down from the north it will be bringing with it a cool air mass, which will require an input of warmth to raise temperatures. A warm front off the Atlantic over the top of the high would return temperatures to above average, as would a southeasterly dragging warm air into the mix although this tends to take a while longer to raise temperatures.

    I saw that forecast and TBH we are about to see avg temps rather than cold ones IMHO, so still warm, just not as warm (higher than avg) as we have been getting.
