Summer-like Pattern To Last Throughout This Week, Scotland May Threaten March Heat Record Sunday

Temps climbed to 18C at Prestwick, Ayrshire

There is little change in my overall thoughts for the upcoming 4-6 days over the UK and Ireland as high pressure will continue to build in from the south. What appears to be more apparent this evening is that sunshine could be more than I first thought and therefore I am more confident in calling the forecast highs I have orginally pointed to over the past several days.

So, long and short of it, what we’re gonna see day after day through at least Wednesday is fog, low cloud and mist formation once the sun falls below the horizon each night. This fog, like we’ve already seen will be extensive and will spread generally east to west with the light onshore flow off the North Sea. By daytime, once the sun rises we see for most, a fairly quick burn off and peeling back of this canopy back towards the North Sea coastal areas of England and Scotland. In inland areas open and exposed to the sea, we may find fog moves in during the day as increasing sea breezes kick in as the land heats up.

Elsewhere and away from the coast and fog we are talking sunshine in abundance and temps rising tomorrow into the 16-20C range widely. Parts of South-Central England, Greater London up through the Midlands and perhaps as far north as Yorkshire, we may see several 22-24C readings Sunday through Wednesday. The Central Belt of Scotland should warm into the 16-19C range IF there is no cloud or fog into the afternoon hours Sunday through at least Tuesday. Sheltered parts of Dumfries and Galloway, the Borders up through the Highlands and Aberdeenshire to the lee of the Grampians may see pockets of 21-23C tomorrow through Tuesday, perhaps Wednesday.

22.2C is the reading we are keeping a close eye on over the upcoming few days. If we exceed that in Scotland then we will have set a new heat record for the March in Scotland, I believe this is possible, I also believe that 24C is very possible somewhere over England and eastern Wales over the next 7 days before the ridge gradually breaks down and there may even be a 25C high somewhere.

Heat Eases As Strong To Severe Storms Focus On East Today

Severe Thunderstorm Watches In Effect For SE West Virginia, SW Virginia, Cent N & S Carolina, SE Georgia, N Florida!

As of 4:00 p.m. EDT, a broken line of violent thunderstorms extended from southwestern Virginia to central South Carolina. Several powerful thunderstorms were preceding this line across eastern parts of the Carolinas.
The line was bearing down on the Charlotte, N.C., area and was tracking toward Winston-Salem, N.C., and Roanoke, Va.
One supercell within this line has prompted a tornado warning south of Roanoke, Va.
The violent thunderstorms in southwestern Virginia have also had a history of producing baseball-sized hail, which broke windows of a home at Groundhog Mountain along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
In South Carolina, quarter-sized hail covered the ground of some homes near Salley. (AccuWeather)
