High Pressure To Dominate First 7-10 Days of January Across UK & Ireland

Written by on December 30, 2012 in United Kingdom & Ireland with 0 Comments

The next and last system of the year will spread more wind and rain across the UK tonight and tomorrow, making for a wet end to a record wet year. The good news is that, for most, we should see a drier, cooler close to New Year’s Eve but there will be a few exceptions..

Heavy showers will follow the main rain band across Scotland, which may mean an off and on wet and perhaps even snowy end to the year for some parts. Yes, sleet or even snow is possible as colder air pushes in on the backside of the front and not just to high ground, so you’ll want to wrap up warm as well as have waterproofs if your attending any of the outdoor events tomorrow night across Scotland.

The far Southeast of England will also be an area for possible lingering rain as we approach midnight as the weather system which brought all the wind and rain across the UK during Monday exits. I will have more detail coming up in a special Hogmanay/New Year forecast, available later this evening

Looking ahead and models are persistent at building a ridge into the UK for mid to late week and really, looking out through the first 10 days of January, it’s looking milder and more thankfully much more settled. The next few days will see a big improvement for southern and central parts while Scotland could see rain and a mix, but pressures will begin to noticeably rise during the second half of the week.

As mentioned in last night’s post, the west will see a mild first half of January but changes are on the way for the east.

The GFS shows this for the next 7 days across Europe.

In the 8-16 day it shows eastern Europe significantly cool with Siberian air returning.
