29th August-4th September UKweather forecast W Yorks and beyond

leave a comment »

 

29th August-4th September
A cool and abrupt end to summer. Expect some sunshine but not a lot of warmth, in fact some lows for September could be reached, and potentially there is news of EQ to NW England.

30th Some precipitation continues with nor westerlies strong at times combined to battle with some easterly flows but this can be an attempt to clear the wet conditions. I expect noisy breezes on 30th which will be a cool sunny day with cloud. Expect days to follow to be cool and windy, some showery outbreaks, but some sunshine breaks out between the clouds.
The weather is more settled for second half of this phase,  with better chance of drier less breezy days with sunshine with 3rd being the pleasanter day for this phase and heralding some more amenable weather with some sunshine in days to follow.

FEEDBACK 21st-19th August

FEEDBACK 21st-19th August
A reasonably accurate prediction I rate this 98% accurate for this phase, the SE got flood warnings from 22nd, didn’t get time to look at Scotland or Ireland at outset, again I didn’t get time to see if a tornado did arise, but certainly gale force winds did erupt for the North with a severe gale forecast expected there for 26th/27th and we got very strong blustery winds in W Yorks—pretty amazing when you think astrology could forecast this back in Winter earlier this year, before this weather was even on the horizon!
Our weather for 26th started showery before sunrise followed by a glorious morning very windy but a lovely day, 27th2nd was glorious here too with nice temps keeping it summery, 23rd. Glorious but breezy and some cloud again, 24th-25th though more cloud around on 25th. 26th gave us a rainy am, drier but cloudy day cooler conditions rainy again by eveing with temps much cooler. 27th Overnight showers kept things cool and continued showery into the moming, breezy day with showers again by evening and breezy. 28th Brought very strong breezy conditions, and though it remained dry Lds and Bfd, Otley had rain all afternoon, while we got a showery morning followed by a sunshiny pm. 28th continued very breezy in fact in Grassington it was strong winds you had to take care with if you were out walking…..It was sunny here with a shower around 9 45 am, then again light shower 11 am but sun with cloud for the afternoon while it blew a gale in Scotland and the north as predicted….29th gave a sunny am but weather deterirorated by late afternoon brining in showery conditions by 6pm continuing intermittenlty t/out the evening along with very breezy weather….

Weather West yorks and Beyond 21st-29th August

leave a comment »

Not as fair a phase with wet unsettled conditions for first half but weather turning slightly sunnier for second half when winds can be strong and tornado activity develops after 26th…..temps on cool to mod range with 27th-29th seeing better mercury levels for the phase.

Rain expected from outset especially over Ireland and Scotland and Northern England, we might escape the worst of it here and there will be some refreshing air to compensate for lack of dryness. Sun and cloud from 21-22nd and some easterlies can be swirling around from Monday. 23 rd could see continuing showery outbreaks cloudy some sun spells while 23rd  brings some erratic weather and some easterly squalls along with southerly spurts expect a cloudy but mild day with showers threatening to arrive on Friday t/out UK leaving some sunny weather once rain has passed over. Strong north westerlies to clear up the rain. 24th should be moderate to warm but don’t expect any highs, atmosphere will be more settled less breezy. 25th Northerlies also begin to reign growing stronger by  26/27th when high speed winds can bring breeding tornadoes, and in the north there will be gales. Cool conditions with cold pockets especially in exposed regions from 28th with winds continuing in strength and the outlook is for strong windy and rainy conditions t/out UK for 29th

UKweather West Yorks feedback 13th-21st August

FEEDBACK 13th-21st August
Another accurate forecast with wet weather arriving in form of thunderstorm by 7pm after a lovely hot sunshiny summer day on on 18th rather than 15th (though 15th did bring intermittent light spartan outbreaks of showers) so got the electrical outbursts wrongly dated for this quick tour of weather for the phase, though these forecasts were done in March this year……still I should hve spent more time dating this event better…..Iunderstand that 16th was better in keighley than the sunshine, clouds and intermittent showers we got in Leeds /Bradford, but then micro climates are so difficult to write up in a brief forecast such as I deliver for one region where it can rain on one street and remain dry on another……

13-21 August
This is barbecue time for certain. Some fogs and mistiness at outset in low lying areas but generally we can expect some summer highs and fine weather to come with lovely summer evenings bringing fine outdoor conditions for sitting outside cafe style and al fresco dining.

13-14th Warm air and mugginess from outset leading to some mistiness in low lying areas, but some clearer conditions with sunshine as sun grows stronger.. Temperatures should be soaring and lead to electrical outbursts for 15th and this can bring showers for some regions of UK especially northern areas. Winds can begin to be active from 16th and clouds likely to be blown about moving any rain threats along leaving sunshine some room to shine and whippy westerlies grow stronger on 17th turning N Westerly.  Nice day on 18th with warm southerly air flows mingling below strong N Westerlies and some varying temperatures by 19th onwards, but summer continues though we leave the highs behind by the end of this phase with news of wetter weather to come over from west.
Actually my forecast turn out much more accurate than that quoted here from a newspaper in March this year written by Fiona Macrae:–

”June will bring heavy rain, thunderstorms and even flash-flooding, say weathermen.
And if that hasn’t done enough to dampen your spirits, this summer’s weather will be worse than that of the previous two years.
Bright future: Much of the country enjoyed an early taste of summer last week, but we might not see similar conditions again until August – which is set to be a scorcher
Mr Powell said: ‘Late July and August should offer the warmest temperatures – but the highest recorded temperatures are not under any threat.”

FEEDBACK 6th-13th August

FEEDBACK 6th-13th August
6-9th cloudy with Durham and Northumberland, N Ireland and Scotland hit by flash floods by 7th for this phase. 7-9th brought some late afternoon sunspells to W Yorks and it did remain dry here but windy. Didn’t see any news of a tornado and the gales didn’t seem to arrive at speeds I expected, but by 10th even we got showery weather mid morning and by 3pm with windy weather as well. 11th dry and sunny, humid and static condidtions released by 4 30 pm via a light shower then cloud to follow. 12th has been overcast, gloomy and intermittent light showers…..
So not a bad forecast for this phase at all it was very windy at the first half but more settled second half wind wise, and at least the floods seem to have died down to those areas affected.

UKweather 6th-13th August

6th-13th August
This phase brings back memories of that of 6th Nov 2010 when 80mph gales hit Wakefield felling trees, 2nd Feb phase 2009 which saw a tornado hitting the

Cornish coast and blizzards, and 16th Feb 2009 when strong westerlies swirled clockwise around the UK bringing rain and flood warnings  with Anglia and S

E regions vulnerable. 18th Oct 2009 phase saw as many as 14 flood warnings in place……..So expect a bit of drama for this phase and you won’t be disappointed. We will get cooler summer temps (though 9th looks best for warmth) with some strong winds and some record levels of sudden precipitation.

I decided to give a brief reference to each day rather than the usual analysis.
The first half is a gloomy oppressive air with some heavy downpours affecting drains putting them on overload, and transport routes will be affected. Some fast westerlies rule with rain from 7th, while 8th could bring a fairer spell but still unsettled weather conditions. 9th brings the gales into play from NW and tornado potential accompanying heavy prolonged downpours brings more humid but static conditions. 11-12th onwards should be more settled with some sunshine attempting to prove it’s still summer, but still some cold lows around and still windy with showery intervals.
