UKweather 13th-21st August-astrometeorology

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.”
