Thanks to a southward dive or split jet west of Ireland with main low nearer Iberia, we’re stuck in a slack air flow aloft over the British Isles with a slow moving low near NW Scotland which is providing cool, frequently showery conditions. However it’s much sunnier and warmer further south and east where pressure is higher. This setup holds today and Saturday but less so Sunday as the low clears east.

Into early next week and the jet becomes more active directing lows back towards NW Scotland and so it’s wetter and windier once again for Northern Ireland, Scotland and parts of Wales, warm and sunny for South and Southeast.

As for mid to late next week, we turn our eyes to the tropics. Not so much Harvey but other tropical entities shall drift into the mid North Atlantic and this may help pump the Azores high north over the UK. I’m hopeful the tropics can lend us a helping hand at bringing better weather widely late next week and through the weekend.

The positive aspect to this weekend and early next week is the pleasant late summer warmth. Unfortunately it benefits mainly the South, Southeast UK with. Story of the summer really.
