>The Pacific Northwest is experiecning very differing conditions depending upon where you are. Mid to upper 90s is sweltering the interior Pacific Northwest and northern Rockies in late season heat, however after Havre, Mont topped a record-breaking 96 yesterday, this morning Polebridge, Mont bottomed out at a shivery 25 degrees.. Polebridge is one of those cold spots as is no surprise to see this low a temperature at this point in the year but what always amazes me is the contrast in daytime heat and how we can literally see freezing mornings and then blistering heat by afternoon…

We do see a cold pool swing through the Rockies in coming days and a large contrast is setting up as the I-5 Seattle to Portland corridor will warm into the 90s, very warm for late September, whilst the pool of cool will bring a cold rain to Denver which may struggle to top 50 and nights may take a run at the mid-50s with outlying areas hitting the freezing mark..

This time of year is always interesting as sometimes the atmosphere can be slow toadjust to the lowering sun angle and we do see nice warm days even into October but under clear skies, calm wind and increasingly drier, crisper air we see chillier nights and mornings.

Here in the UK temperatures are chilly even by day under sunny skies as breezes are much more crisp and leaves are showing the signs of seasonal change as they fall off trees here in Scotland. England is enjoying warmer conditions where the high in St James Park was 24C yesterday, the coldest place was the known Scottish Highland cold nook of Kinbrace with -1C (not bad really considering the loss of daylight now.

As for the tropical Atlantic, I am set on the fact that we will likely not see any other US threat, there has only been one landfalling tropical storm all season and one hurricane develop. I truthfully don’t see anything much else develop this year.. The season is over in my opinion but there might be a possibly of a stray depression or at best storm develop before the end of November but at the moment I don’t see it. It took until August 15 for anything to form this year.

Thanks for reading.

    >Do you know of any snowfall occuring in the UK this month Mark? I remember a few years back that walkers in the Glenshee area were lucky to escape with their lives after a freak blizzard struck.
