Seasonal outlook - July 26, 2014
Some high pressure
Frosty mid October

Issued: Saturday 26th July 2014
Duty forecasters: Simon Keeling & Captain Bob

Early indications are for a far start to September. High pressure may be dominant early in the month bringing dry conditions with some good spells of sunshine.
The area of high pressure is then expected to slip westwards into the second third of the month with temperatures falling in the northerly wind. Northern and eastern areas are likely to have some showers or rain, with the west being drier.
Probably a slack pressure flow mid month with the risk of some thundery showers and becoming warmer too.
By the end of the month a further ridge of high pressure may build bringing drier weather, especially in the south and warmer too. Some cloud and outbreaks of rain further north and west.

A mixed start to the month with rain in the northern half of the country, but drier to the south, but not exclusively so.
At times the high pressure to the east will slip into the UK and Ireland bringing some drier, warmer weather, but with the trough close by rainfall will never be to far away.
A ridge of high pressure then building slowly from around 8th bringing drier conditions and some good spells of sunshine. The high then expected to be stronger mid month and perhaps bringing the first frost of the autumn with sunny days, but cold and clear nights.
The dry weather and frosty nights may hold for 10-days before some rain returns at the end of the month.
