Whilst Scotland prepares for more unsettled weather, England should warm into the low 70s (low 20sC)

Whilst high pressure once again sits and progresses east across Britain over the next couple of days, Scotland will see a band of rain push south from the Highlands (likely heavy at times and persistent, tomorrow) and this cloud, breezy, damp weather should hold highs only to the mid-50s (12-14C). However the high pressure will be felt more south of the border where skies though cloudy with showers today, should be clearer tomorrow and a nice warming trend should allow temps tomorrow to top the 70 degree mark (21C) for the second time this year and by Wednesday perhaps warm beyond that figure towards the 74 to 75 degrees (23-24C) . Mentions of drier than normal conditions down around central and southern portions of England are showing my forecast to have merit and this drier than normal April could help with warmer than normal weather now and more so, 4-8 weeks down the road if this dry weather continues….. I don’t think it will be long until England tops the 80-degree mark or 27C though up here in Scotland, we may remain more unsettled but STILL remain slightly subpar when it comes to normal rain… Seasonal northward migration of the jet stream is still progressing and will for another few weeks, therefore pretty much all of Britain will see periods of warmth in between unsettled spells, those warm spells will increase across the South first and finally further north as we progress from early to mid-May as the jet pushes north of Scotland and high pressure holds a firmer hand on our airspace in the weeks to come.

Weather Talk
By Mark Vogan

First 100-degree high of 2010!

Just prior to a major trough dropping into the West bringing yet more unsettled weather and cool temps, unwelcome I’m sure to those folks of the Desert Southwest and along to the California beach areas where their hungry for some heat and sun, we see enough warming take place to finally make it to 100 at one of the prime spots for such an occurrance, Death Valley. This 100-degree reading is long overdue and it appears as though with a cooldown looming as a major trough swings south out of western Canada, it may take another 4-6 days before we have another shot at strong heating across this hot house of the nation, remember, anytime you get major heat across the nation, it’s always born over the desert Southwest!
