What I'm Watching

What I'm Watching

Temperature rising next week.

Growing confidence for the rise in temperatures next week continues. From Monday we will see a gradual rise in temperatures probably  rising into the low 20's from Wednesday. At the moment it looks like there is a chance of some heavy thundery showers from Thursday, but that is a long way off and at this time forecasting thunderstorms a...

At last a warmer weather looks like it’s on the way.

At last there are signs that warmer weather is on its way. Air pressures looks like it will start to rise next week and we should notice a warmer feel to our temperatures. Temperatures to start off with next week will be around 15 c by the end of the week temperatures could be around 20 c if not in...

GEFS thinks a warming in temperatures is on the way with April showers.

Looking at this GEFS graph its shows a warming in the overall temperature. You would expect this because we are now in April. If you are new to this site and you have not seen a GEFS graph before it shows temperature and rainfall. The temperature section is at the top part of the graph taken at 1,500 meters, 850 hpa...

Outlook for Easter for the Cannock Chase area.

This is the outlook for the Easter period for the Cannock Chase area. There is still time to change so it will be Thursday before I can really call it a forecast. Good Friday. Mostly cloudy, should remain dry 8 c. Saturday 31st March. Mostly cloudy and dry, 6 c. Easter Day, Sunday 1st April. A dry day with bright spells, 7 c. Bank Holiday Monday...

Update for the Easter period.

A few days ago I hinted that we could see a return of some wintry weather for Easter. At the moment the models are still showing the return of winter for this period. It looks like that -5 c line at 1,500 metres 850 hpa will move southwards over the UK during Thursday 29th. So it looks like there...

GEFS thinks increasing temperature with some rain and showers, possible wintry return for Easter.

This is the outlook from the GEFS. For followers of the GEFS will know I use it for a general outlook for the next 2 weeks. If you have not seen the GEFS graph before the top part of the graph is the temperature at 850hpa around 1,500 metres. A good reason for looking at the temperature at this...

Still uncertainty with the detail on this weekend wintry weather.

There is still much uncertainty on this weekends wintry weather. Each run on the models gives different detail. Yes we know for sure the temperature is set to fall but the detail in the precipitation is the part that keeps changing. I did say at the beginning of the week that I thought it would be Thursday, Friday before...

My 2nd update on the return of cold temperatures.

This is my latest update on the return of the Beast from the East. Cold air is still looking like it will move in during Saturday. I don't expect the upper air temperature to be as cold as it was the end of February the beginning of March but saying that -13c at 1,500m mid March is still very...

Turning colder from Sunday 18th but for how long ?.

Temperatures are set to fall again from Sunday 18th March. Cold air will be moving over the UK from the East. During Sunday the air temperature looks like it will be -12c at 1500 metres. I do think this period of colder temperatures will be fairly short lived for around 4 or 5 days. At this time I don't...

GEFS shows its remaining unsettled and turning colder around the middle of the month.

The GEFS shows that the weather will remain unsettled and turning colder around the middle of the month possibly turning wintry. For new followers who have not seen the GEFS graph before, I use it to show a general idea for the next two weeks. It shows the temperature at 1,500 metres and the bottom of the graph shows rainfall....
