Seasonal outlook - July 17, 2015
Fair September?
Rough end October

Issued: Friday 17th July 2015
Duty forecasters: Simon Keeling & Captain Bob

Higher than normal pressure is expected to be the dominant weather pattern through September.
Indications are that this will tend to be situated to the east of the country. Conditions are expected to be drier than normal, probably more so later in the month. Temperatures are also likely to be above normal for the time of year, although not by much.
Later on in the month we expect the risk of air frosts to increase and it may be that periods of rain affect Scotland and Ireland from time to time.

A reversal in conditions in October as low pressure deepens and becomes a predominant feature.
Strong winds and heavy rain are likely, especially in more central and southern parts of the country where the jet stream will be strongest. Temperatures will be near normal overall. whilst rainfall totals as a month will be close to normal, although tending to be focused in the second half of the month.
Probably drier in Scotland, although still rain to come here.
