Repetitive Pattern Developing Over Europe, About As Amplified As It Gets!

With a major blocking pattern developing (boulder setting up within the atmosphere extending from central Atlantic up over Greenland), the typical westerly flow shuts down and air masses are forced south or north often bringing anomalous weather.

Blocked patterns create ‘build-up’. Large and dominant highs re-route weather and at times corner it when surrounded, keeping a system stuck in a given place for several days, perhaps longer and so a very repetitive pattern is the result.

Models are in good agreement that a trough which initially settles over Ireland this weekend gets pushed SSW as heights rise around it. With nothing to move it along, the low pressure feature deepens while stuck between Ireland and the Azores.

This translates to a cool, showery setup day after day for the UK with greatest concentration of shower activity more to the SW of the UK and Ireland, less showery for Scotland where high pressure is more dominant though we could be plagued by stuck weather fronts which keep us locked beneath cloud and spells of rain for days.

On the other hand we may have day after day of bright, albeit cool sunshine with clear, cold and frosty nights.

There’s indication that Scotland may receive air from the cold waters of the Norwegian Sea while southern England for a time may see mild air from the near continent. See today’s video for more on that.
