Seasonal outlook - April 27, 2017
Higher pressure
Drier for many

Issued: Thursday 27th April 2017
Duty forecasters: Simon Keeling & Garry Nicholson

As of the time of issue models are emphasising that high pressure is likely to be the dominating factor of the weather through June.
A drier than average month is anticipated and this is likely to lead to moe sunshine than usual too.
There are uncertainties about how dominant the high will be as it could drift around from time to time, allowing for bands of rain to affect the country.
Overall conditions suggest though that the weather stays mostly dry.

High pressure is likely to be remaining the most notable feature of the weather in July. It may be north of the country encouraging a more easterly flow.
Dry weather again seems most likely, although there is little back up for this when comparing to similar patterns in previous years.
Models continue to emphasise a warmer than average month. Severe thunderstorms could affect the south at times.
