Weather Watch 19th July 2020

Good afternoon and welcome to Sundays Weather Watch taking a look at the weather for the islands, the UK and around the Globe.

On this Sunday afternoon we are seeing a mixture of sunshine and cloud. The cloud is dominating for most. A few scattered showers around and these are heavy in places. Winds have been gusting 30 mph have eased for most under 20 mph. Max temp so far today off 13C

We are now going to take a look at the next few days weather. All the images show below come from the Met office and can be found by following this link https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/maps-and-charts/surface-pressure

Monday across the islands we are going to see a day of sunshine and showers. These showers will be heavy at times. Winds under 20 mph. Temps in the low teens.

Across the UK high pressure dominates and sits to the South West. Fine dry and warm for Wales and most of England. Showers for Scotland more frequent in the North West. These showers moving into Northern Ireland and Northern England.

Tuesday across the islands we are expecting to see fine and dry conditions with a mixture of sunshine and cloud. Winds under 20 mph and temps getting into the mid teens possible 16C

Across the UK high pressure dominates the weather. Winds are mainly light and for most its fine dry and settled with a few showers. Low pressure 1016 moves towards Scotland on Wednesday.

Wednesday across the islands and there is quite a bit of uncertainty as regards the low pressure 1016 mb and how much rainfall it could bring us. All models bring rainfall into the islands but some track the heaviest rain to our South. at this stage I am expecting overcast conditions and rain how much should become more certain in the next 24 hours. Winds are expected to stay light.

For the rest of the UK and things stay fairly settled dry and warm with few outbreaks on rain. The area of low pressure 1016 will bring rain into Scotland but exact track and uncertainty results in low confidence.

Long range – Looks a bit more settled for the end of next week before more rain arrives over the weekend.
