High pressure to dominate 2nd half of summer? Shades of 2003?

We’re approaching the mid point of meteorological summer 2017 and it’s been largely warm and sunny across South and eastern England extending into France and Iberia where the core of the heat has been.

Low pressure positioned near Iceland on the other hand has led to a somewhat traditional ‘mixed summer’ for Northern Ireland and Scotland following a great April and May. While mixed, it’s been no washout either.

Looking down the road and through the 2nd half of July and 1st half of August models remain with the solution of building high pressure OVER the UK and this could present some similarity to August 2003. Remember that month and year?

CFSv2 weeklies show the dominance of high pressure later in July and through August.
